    I don't think it was a direct comparison, though. Just a write-up. I'm looking for an all-in-one super sedan comparo. I'm sure C&D will make one in the following months.

    I like the interior. The exterior styling is hideous.

    I don't think the RL is playing on the same field as much as Honda would like to think so.

    Good thing you're comparing V6s. :o

    werd, that center console is really odd. I bet some short drivers won't be able to see the buttons on the console properly.

    Read this in another forum, but a Japanese compared the Nissan Fuga 350GT (Infiniti M35 here) with the Honda Legend (Acura RL). Around the track, the Fuga/M35 beat the Legend/RL. This wasn't the AWD version of the Fuga tho.
