it looks the same to me... The 4th gen was such a drastic redesign from the 3rd. I figured the 5th would have bounced back on track. Like BMW did after the whole Chris Bangle thing.
the rear is a change, but to me the nose of the car was way worse.

Acura had some to play! Wow it looks pretty good.
I'll hold off judgement of the power train til numbers are official.

Kind of disappointed there isn't an adaptive suspension though.

Best looking sedan from Acura in a very long time.
Hope the production stays true to the concept like most Acura products.

Impressive. It's executed much nicer than the current TL. There's no pointy nose, front overhang is reduced, and the rear isn't sagging in the center. There's a lot of 2IS is the side profile and trunk, which is a safe way to go- if a bit tried already.
Overall, this should sell well for Acura. It's much more mainstream (agreeable to the public) and less obnoxious than the current TL.
Finally, a decently styled Acura sedan.

Wow, Acura giving the TLX some good lines, detail, has that muscular stance the 2008 model did

Thank goodness SH-AWD comes to play. That with the 3.5L V6 and 9-Speed should prove to be a slick ride

It's almost a miracle that Acura was able to produce a design this appealing.

This will be good for their self esteem. Perhaps a new trend in Acura design will stem from this one can hope

Which still may not be saying that much. The current TL and the recently-discontinued ZDX are arguably two of the company's worst eyesores.

Lipstick on a pig really. Yeah I hope you're right, I used to be a fan of Acura, they sort of lost me for a while.

Not my work, just quoting from another forum.

Just a comparison to the Accord.

Am I the only one that think the pre-face lift Acura TL looked BETTER?
