Our team of spy photographers were never big fans of Acura’s chrome-face so, when they heard that the TL model is about to have its nose reworked, they were more than happy to hunt the test vehicle down and shoot it for us.

So here it is: the 2011 model year Acura TL. Yes, we know, the vehicle is still wearing a ton of camo, but we just couldn’t take it off. You have to understand that this was due to some sort of human rights for cars. But let's move to the description of the vehicle.

The “Power Plenum” grille used by the saloon isn’t expected to be blown into hyperspace altogether, but will however be toned down. Judging by the aforementioned ton of camo on the car’s front fascia, we expect it to come with multiple exterior changes, with the most refreshed area being the lower one.

As you can see, the test car is using measurement instrumentation. This means that the upcoming facelift will bring changes under the hood. This would make sense: as the TL was introduced to the market for the 2009 model year, the future refresh would come as a mid-cycle facelift, with this type of tech changes being expected.

One of the potential changes is the ditching of the five speed automatic gearbox for a new six speed one.

We have to take a good look at the changes suffered by the Acura TL’s front end, because these are likely to spread to the entire line-up of the automotive producer.
