1999 TL New Car Test Drive
This car has spirit. Perhaps it's the spirit of Soichiro Honda in this all-new Acura 3.2 TL. Mr. Honda died in 1992, but officials from American Honda's Acura Division say the TL embodies his philosophies of performance, styling, luxury and value. He strived for perfection in all his cars and many of them were significant mileposts in the history of the automobile.
We found some of this spirit in British Columbia's Cascade Mountains high above Chateau Whistler. Extremely stable at high speeds, the Acura 3.2 TL encourages its driver to bend it around fast sweeping turns with confidence.
Completely redesigned and re-engineered for 1999, Acura's 3.2 TL comes with a powerful new 3.2-liter V6 engine, a nicely balanced new suspension, a rigid new chassis and fresh styling.
