NCTD.com said, “We’re tempted to name the Acura RL “Commuter Car of the Year” or the “Best Car for the Commute.” A veritable sanctuary, Acura’s flagship luxury sedan is super smooth in stop-and-go traffic yet brilliantly responsive. It offers every feature we can imagine to improve any commute. And those features are easy to operate. It has a great stereo. Acura’s navigation system might be the best in the industry in terms of ease of use and sophistication. Its real-time traffic reporting helps us steer away from congested freeways. Its active cruise control matches the pace of the car ahead and warns us when everyone ahead stands on the brakes. A sophisticated all-wheel-drive system improves handling on slippery on-ramps. Other luxury cars offer these features, but too many of them are too hard to operate. This is the ultimate commuter car. The 2007 Acura RL with the Collision Mitigation Braking System and Adaptive Cruise Control retails for $53,870 ”
Now all thought they loved the Acura they also listed several others, such as, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Mercedes-Benz E320 Bluetec, Hyundai Sonata, Ford Focus, Suzuki SX4, Ford Escape Hybrid, Ford Edge, and Porsche 911 Carrera 4. They go into great detail why these cars so great for the commute, definitely worth the read.
