The Acura TL Base receives a number of new features for 2012, including exterior design updates, a new 6-speed automatic transmission, new wheels and a number of interior updates. The new Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission includes paddle shifters, a Sport mode and a double-kick-down feature, which gives drivers the ability to manually downshift 2 gears at once. The transmission links to a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which powers the TL Base through the front wheels. The V6 produces 280 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque, and posts fuel economy numbers of 20/29 mpg. Premium fuel is required. Standard safety features include 6 airbags, antilock disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, and the automaker's Vehicle Stability Assist system, which incorporates electronic stability control and traction control.
Inside, the 5-passenger TL Base gets an updated instrument cluster and new interior surfaces for 2012, as well as added functionality for the Bluetooth system and a USB port with a faster connection speed. Leather upholstery comes standard, along with 2-level heated front sport seats, 10-way power adjustment for the driver and 8-way power adjustment for the passenger. A power tilt/slide moonroof, remote keyless entry, memory settings for the driver's seat, a trip computer and steering-wheel-mounted controls for audio, cruise, phone and a multi-information display are among the other standard features. In addition, the TL Base receives an 8-speaker, 276-watt audio system with a 6-CD changer and SiriusXM satellite radio. Outside, updates include a more sedate version of the shield grille, restyled front and rear bumpers, and new turn signals, foglights, HID headlights and LED taillights. Heated exterior mirrors, illuminated door handle recesses and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are among the other standard exterior features.

The Acura TL SH-AWD midsize sedan, which receives a number of updates and new features for 2012, comes equipped with Acura's SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system, which automatically sends up to 90 percent of power to the front wheels under typical driving conditions, but transfers up to 45 percent of power to the rear wheels under hard acceleration to improve rear-wheel traction and up to 70 percent of power to the outside wheels when cornering to reduce understeer and improve overall stability. The AWD system channels power from a 3.7-liter VTEC V6 engine, which puts out 305 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It links to a new Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission, which includes paddle shifters, a Sport mode and a double-kick-down feature, giving drivers the ability to manually downshift 2 gears at once. The V6 posts fuel economy numbers of 18/26 mpg and requires premium fuel.

In addition, an upgraded climate control system includes a GPS link and solar sensing for automatic operation based on the sun's intensity, and a 10-speaker, 440-watt Surround Sound audio system with a CD/DVD player, a 60GB hard drive, SiriusXM satellite radio and an upgraded USB port with a faster connection speed. The TL Base with the Advance Package also comes equipped with push-button start, remote keyless entry, a multifunction steering wheel and a navigation system with a rear-view camera and real-time traffic. In addition, Acura updated the vehicle's instrument cluster and interior surfaces for 2012 and added functionality for the Bluetooth system.

The 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD with Technology Package adds a number of upscale features not found on the base TL SH-AWD trim, including perforated Milano premium leather upholstery, push-button start and a navigation system with a rear-view camera and real-time traffic and weather. The Technology Package also includes an upgraded climate control system with a GPS link and solar sensing, and a 10-speaker, 440-watt Surround Sound audio system with a CD/DVD player, a 60GB hard drive and SiriusXM satellite radio. Two-level heated front sport seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory settings, an 8-way power-adjustable passenger seat and a power tilt/slide moonroof are also included, along with remote keyless entry, a trip computer and steering-wheel-mounted controls for audio, cruise, phone and a multi-information display. Acura also updated the sedan's instrument cluster and interior surfaces for 2012 and added functionality to the Bluetooth system and a faster connection speed for the audio system's USB port.
Outside, the TL SH-AWD with the Technology Package displays an updated exterior design, with a more refined front shield grille, restyled front and rear bumpers, and new foglights, turn signals, HID headlights and LED taillights. Heated exterior mirrors, illuminated door handle recesses, a rear spoiler, dual chrome exhaust outlets and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are among the other standard features. Power comes from a 3.7-liter VTEC V6 engine, which generates 305 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Acura pairs the V6 with a new Sequential SportShift 6-speed automatic transmission, which includes paddle shifters, a Sport mode and a double-kick-down feature, giving drivers the ability to manually downshift 2 gears at once. Owners can also opt for a 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission. The EPA estimates fuel economy numbers of 18/26 mpg with the automatic transmission and 17/25 with the manual shifter. Standard safety features include 6 airbags, antilock disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, and the automaker's Vehicle Stability Assist system, which incorporates electronic stability control and traction control. The SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system automatically sends up to 90 percent of power to the front wheels under typical driving conditions, but transfers up to 45 percent of power to the rear wheels under hard acceleration to improve rear-wheel traction and up to 70 percent of power to the outside wheels when cornering to reduce understeer and improve overall stability.

As the best-equipped TL trim available for 2012, the Acura TL SH-AWD midsize sedan with the Advance Package includes a number of features not found on lower-end TL trims, including 6-level heated and ventilated front sport seats, a blind-spot information system and unique 18-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels. It also comes equipped with all the features offered by the Technology Package, which include perforated Milano premium leather upholstery, push-button start and a navigation system with a rear-view camera and real-time traffic and weather. Also included with the Technology Package are an upgraded climate control system with a GPS link and solar sensing and a 10-speaker, 440-watt Surround Sound audio system with a CD/DVD player, 60GB hard drive and SiriusXM satellite radio.

Power for the Acura TL SH-AWD with the Advance Package comes from a 3.7-liter VTEC V6 engine, which produces 305 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
