My wife and I just purchased a new 2010 TL /tech package. Our reasons were the tech package, ride quality, performance, size and what we thought was a good price for the vehicle we wanted. We tried the A4 and just were not blown away. back seats were just to small.
My wife drives the car daily and I get the driving chores (!!) when we go out and Church. She likes It and I like it too.
I will admit that it does not seem as zippy as a S2000 in rush hour traffic but if pushed will surprise you as far as how well it does handled. Just remember it is 3735 lbs. I would not drive it at 9/10 under those conditions.
It is definitely a freeway cruiser and a adept passer when you need to. Quicker than the seat of your pants will indicate. One glance in your rear view mirror will
assure you that you are going a lot faster than you think.
In all fairness we liked the Volvo S60 (I believe it was out of our price range) and VW Passat (rear seats room was tight)

Congrats on your purchase! I had an 04 TL for a long time, and agree that it is a great, sporty family sedan!
The Passat should probably no longer be in this discussion - my understanding is that the Passat only comes with a 4 cylinder engine now - the "CC" has the 6 cylinder engine.
Enjoy your new ride!!!
