2009 Acura RL Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Acura RL

  • With eight-way adjustability for the driver's seat plus a steering column that telescopes as well as tilts, nearly any adult should find a comfortable position behind the RL's wheel.

    - Cars.com
  • The 300-hp. RL is a fine piece of work - quick, quiet, surefooted, luxurious - and standard with all-wheel drive, not extra.

    - Cars.com
  • Wanting only in the areas of price and power, Acura's RL offers a fresh take on the luxury sedan formula. Count standard all-wheel drive, especially comfortable seats, and a handsome cabin among RL's chief pluses.

    - Consumer Guide
  • The interior of the new RL is befitting of a true luxury car.

    - Edmunds.com
  • I heard the test car's engine start, but it was a faint sound, and even hard acceleration brought engine sounds that seemed to be far away. This is how insulated the RL's interior is.

Acura RL Comparisons

  • ...there are all-wheel-drive sedans I'd rather have, but, then again, they would be German, and they probably wouldn't have the stellar reliability that I bet this Acura will provide over the long haul.
