Used 2018 Buick Regal TourX Wagon for Sale
Which Regal TourX does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.6 / 10
Buick hasn't sold a wagon in quite some time (remember the Roadmaster?), but now it's back with the 2018 Buick Regal TourX. The twist is that Buick has cribbed a few crossover SUV themes, including standard all-wheel drive, plastic body cladding and a bit of extra ground clearance, to create the new TourX.
Like the redesigned Regal Sportback upon which it's based, the TourX is bigger, more stylish and a more compelling entry in the luxury segment than previous Regals. It also offers a lot more passenger space and, naturally, utility. Buick says that the TourX has more cargo space than its wagon rivals and even many compact luxury SUVs. Compared to those SUVs, you'll also like its lower price and its lower roof and load height.
Though we've yet to drive the TourX, we expect this new Buick will be a solid alternative to a premium wagon or crossover SUV.
2018 Buick Regal TourX models
The 2018 Buick Regal TourX is a five-passenger wagon with standard all-wheel drive and a slightly raised ride height. There are three trim levels — base, Preferred and Essence — each of which comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (250 horsepower, 295 pound-feet of torque) and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Standard equipment on the TourX base includes 18-inch wheels, LED running lights, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, a height-adjustable driver seat, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, a rearview camera, OnStar communications (with a 4G connection and onboard Wi-Fi), a 7-inch touchscreen interface, a USB port, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a Bose audio system.
The Preferred adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power-adjustable driver seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. It also opens the door to a variety of options. The Preferred Driver Confidence 1 package includes LED headlights, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems. The Sights and Sounds package adds remote start and upgrades to gauges, the audio system and the infotainment system, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, Bluetooth, two rear charge-only USB ports and satellite radio.
The Essence trim adds a hands-free liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat, leather upholstery, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, a heated steering wheel, and most of the content of the Preferred Sights and Sound package. The upgraded audio system can be added through the Essence's own Sights and Sound package.
The Essence Driver Confidence 1 package includes all of those items from the Preferred version plus a driver-side auto-dimming mirror, driver-seat memory functions and a wireless smartphone charging pad. The Driver Confidence 2 package adds all of that plus adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning and intervention.
A panoramic sunroof is a stand-alone option on the Preferred and the Essence.
