The 2018 Buick Regal TourX just got its debut, in order to replace the older version and truly speaking it made us believe in the future of wagons again. The car is promised to come standard with 250 horsepower turbo motor, all wheel drive and a starting price that seriously undercuts other luxury wagons.
The new Regal long-roof should start around $29,995. This means the Regal TourX will cost much less than BMW 3-Series Wagon and the Audi A4. On the flip side, this also means the Regal TourX offers more value per dollar. To boot, the base Regal TourX comes pretty well equipped with 18-inch aluminum wheels, Buick’s touted active noise cancelling, a seven-inch infotainment screen system, heated mirrors and more. But all come with the same 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder with 265 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic, sending power to a full-time twin-clutch all-wheel drive system across the board.
Right off the bat, the Regal TourX’s power already sets it ahead of its direct competition, the Volkswagen Alltrack and the Subaru Outback. Additionally, the 2018 Regal TourX offers quite a bit more space than both the Alltrack and is roughy on par with the Outback. So it’ll be interesting to see if Buick Regal TourX has what it takes to sway buyers in its direction.
