Unforunately, we're not getting that grille, which looks a hundred times better than the one we're getting. US Acuras are getting the hideous silver piece plaguing all future Acuras from here on in. And FWIW, I have two Acuras at home, I just hate the new design direction

Very bad mix of curves and straight edges. Make it one thing or the other, not both.

Also, gotta love how other make's have made abundant use of the elevated Bangle-style trunk. Looks weird on this one.

I really don't like Acura's new approach to styling. The front grills are hideous.

I thought they stopped making the Legend a long time ago. Haven't seen that name around forever.

Yep, it became the RL in 1995. Everywhere else in the world, though, it's still referred to as the Legend.

Honda and Acura's styling the past few year is just horrible.

The new TSX doesn't look that bad at all in person. The RL on the other hand....

what were they thinking!?


The spec sheet for the 09 TL calls for a 280hp FWD version and a 300hp AWD version... what's the purpose of the RL after there's already a 300hp AWD TL? I suppose they're just rearranging its face before it goes to its selling deathbed.
