Debating a new car. Nissan Maxima versus Acura TL? Or something else entirely?

They're both super nice as far as I can tell, light years better than what I'm currently driving which is about 13 years old. The TL has AWD which is a big plus when you need to get to work whether it snows or not. But does it justify paying what I think is an extra ~$6K or so?
If you know something about how the Nissan Maximas of recent years handle in the snow, it would be really helpful. Also test drove a Murano and that was very nice too but I don't need an SUV for any other reason aside from AWD.
Any other cars I ought to try out? Have already test driven Honda CR-V/Accord and Toyota Camry/RAV4 and Hyundai Santa Fe/Sonata, Subaru Outback, and none of them have seemed to measure up. Having a quiet ride is a priority. I know very little about cars. Can anyone assist me?
