Acura tends to design its cars with an eye toward practical midluxury transportation, with nothing too ostentatious or extreme, except one car. In our opinion, the TL SH-AWD is the best car that Acura currently makes.

This hotted up version of the TL sedan gets a 3.7-liter V-6 engine, a sport suspension, and a performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system. It is as comfortable in day-to-day driving as it is capable for high speed cornering. With its six-speed-manual transmission, we could not get enough of it.

Although we like its cabin electronics, the TL SH-AWD doesn't break any new ground, covering basics such as navigation, iPod integration, and a good Bluetooth phone system.
