The official details for the 2018 Buick Regal TourX are finally out. Buick has just revealed that their new soft-roader wagon will be offering great value above all else, all thanks to the generally affordable price range the TourX is pushed into. According to CarsDirect, the new wagon variant of the Regal will be offered at less than $30.000, meaning you could drive a luxury wagon on a budget.
Exterior and Interior
The new 2018 Buick Regal TourX is about 3.4 inches longer that the already lengthy Sportback model. It also has a bit higher ride height, as well as 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space. This translates into a pretty impressive amount of cabin room, which might be Buick’s idea to outclass the likes of Volvo V60 to the Subaru Outback with their new TourX.
In terms of features, you don’t really get a bang for your buck with the base Regal TourX 1SV model. For the $30.000 you get the 18-inch aluminum wheels, active noise cancellation, push-button start, heated mirrors, a universal garage door opener, and most likely the new Buick IntelliLink infotainment system. This is more than adequate list of features, but it is far less than what some of the pricier TourX competitors offer. An upgrade to a higher trim and an additional cost of over $3.500 will get you the power-adjustable seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and additional paint job choices. The priciest trim is the Essence trim which is offered with leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen.
Engine and Powertrain
In terms of powertrain, the new model will only offer one engine option, but a great choice nonetheless. The new TourX will come with the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that will be able to produce up to 250 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which will also be the solitary option. All in all, the Regal TourX is a sturdy German-built wagon with raised suspension, an all-wheel drive, and you can never go wrong with that.
2018 Buick Regal TourX Release Date and Price
The base price for the 2018 Buick Regal TourX is $29,995 which includes the destination cost. A step up from the base model is the $33,575 model that offers additional goodies, and the top of the line Essence trim could set you back $35,945. Buick is yet to reveal the release date for the new TourX wagon, but we are expecting to see the new model in showrooms by the end of the year, beginning of the 2018 model year at the latest.
