1997 Acura TL Overview

The 1997 TL remains primarily unchanged from the car's debut in 1996. The 1997 TL has two trims, each named after its engine: the 2.5 and 3.2.

The 2.5 has a 2.5-liter I5 rated at 176 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque and gets 20/25 mileage. The 3.2 has a 3.2-liter V6 rated at 200 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque and has estimated fuel economy of 19/24. The 3.2 is a little more luxurious, with features such as leather seats part of the standard package rather than a costly option.

Drivers love the styling and handling of the 1997 TL. A lot of noted that you still see a number of 1997 TL's on the road for excellent reason: they stand the test of time, and need very few repairs. Of course, note owners, when repairs are needed, they are costly. Like with the 1996 TL, several have complained about a lack of leg room in both the front and back seats.
