Bought new regal awd, and so far very impressed . Love the adaptive cruise control and spaciousness of the cargo available. What impresses me most so far, is I drive 50 miles a day, and the gas ,mileage is great. I've had the 2.0 turbo before so always loved its performance and handling ability . Have nothing but good things about this auto so far. When looking at suvs ,,,and how much they are compared to what I got for the money and add the gas mileage, will tell all very nice auto for the buck. Ps,,, Never thought would own a wagon, but this is not your grandfathers wagon either lol .

The Buick TourX drives like a car with good feel of the road, nice handling and adequate acceleration and power for most needs. It gets great mileage; on the highway with crossbars but without the cargo box, I routinely log 30-31 mpg. The safety features are impressive, and the rear camera and other parking assists ease any parking challenges. The back seat is very roomy, comfortable for two adults- adequate for 3 for short hops. The way back is very spacious and with the rear seats down, the TourX can haul provisions for a small army. I have made a number of long trips and altogether logged almost 9000 miles and am very happy with my decision. I formerly had an Acura TSX Sportwagon and had some trepidation about going to an American car, but aside from the interior finish- which is not as nice as the Acura- this Buick is a very worthy successor and in some respects- safety features, quiet ride and back seat and way back space- it clearly exceeds what the Acura offered. Like the Acura, the Buick lacks a real spare and instead has one of those useless inflator kits.

The TourX beats Audi and Subaru

The TourX is exactly what I was looking for--a European-based AWD wagon; excellent value; great styling; strong engine; very good MPG; smooth transmission; big interior; quiet ride; excellent handling and lots of features. I have owned an Audi Allroad (unreliable); several Subarus (mundane and common) and two Lincoln SUVs (OK but still not as nice overall as the TourX). The local Buick dealer was exemplary in terms of my purchase. Thus far I am very happy with my TourX. The only shortcomings I have found--and can live with nevertheless--are the lack of ventilated (cooled) seats, limited interior (front row) storage and the inability to turn off the 'automatic engine stop/start'.

Maybe this car isn't for everyone, but if most people really consider how they use their vehicle, the TourX probably checks pretty much all of the boxes. Looks great. Well-powered. So quiet and rides fantastic. Interior is really nice if not luxurious, but I don't buy my cars to be over the top. So much room. Ground clearance? Not great but seriously, few people really need the height of an Outback. I love the Audi Allroad but won't pay the money for 1. the purchase and 2. the repairs. To my eye this car looks much better and is nearly as good for much much less money. I suspect most people who pass this car by do so for the same reason they purchase what they do: emotion. This is an amazing car that will always be a niche vehicle because people don't want the uncool wagon, they want the cool SUV. I think that's nuts. I guess it just means I'll have one of the few on the road. If you're in the market, at least give it a try. I absolutely love it.

Surprise! This Cool Wagon Is A BUICK!

I'd been driving my Acura RDX gas pig 12 years; while it was a great ownership experience (but for mpg) and I enjoyed not seeing them on every corner, it was time for a new ride. Considered Tesla 3, Volt, Niro and Leaf, but styling on all failed to move my pulse. Saw the pricing on the 2018 RDX and my eyes bugged out. I'm kind of over SUVs. And I just didn't want to spend $40k+ on a car. I'm big into outdoor pursuits (hiking, camping, taking wife + LARGE dogs along, and cycling) and for all that yep there's Subaru but I just find Subarus...uninspiring and everywhere. VW wagon? Meh. New Volvo wagons? Beautiful but ouch on pricing and upkeep. Enter the TourX. Here is something different, sleek and interesting with immense utility, low upkeep and very decent to good mpg (21/29 rated; real-world 22.9 city for me, 24 combined, 29+ highway). With the GM/dealer cash incentives, it became quickly evident that it'd be bonkers not to buy one. I'm pretty conservative when it comes to cars...I do a ton of research + a few long test drives. This was an easy decision. The hardest part initially was getting past the disconnect that TourX is a Buick. It's really an Opel made in Germany, but when you're used to Japanese quality and you lived through the excessive plasticlad GM '90s (and also blue-hairs being Buick's main target), you tend to have a disconnect when it comes to "Cool Buick," ha. // I've had it for nearly 6 weeks now, much of that in repeated snow storms of several inches with flawless traction. Standard TourX AWD twin-clutch vectoring is unflappable. Engine warms up quickly to heat the car. Remote start and heated steering wheel are a godsend for bitterly cold, ice-encrusted days. LED headlights, awesome. The TourX value equation is incredible; I don't say that lightly. Bought top line but for moonroof...I can do without it in relentless 100º Kansas summers. My turbo 4 Acura was quick for an SUV with 0-60 in ~7 seconds but craptastic turbo lag. TourX does it in 6.5 — also with a turbo 4 but skip the lag. No I don't race but it's good to know there's plenty of go when you need to pass quickly on the highway, or for city maneuvers...I haven't tried the autostick yet, it's likely even quicker with that. Handling is good (found this out avoiding road hazard), steering is tight...clearly this wagon is German-engineered. At 3700 lbs, it's lighter than most CUVs. Safety packages are worth it. Interior is tasteful and comfortably lux without being gaudy. Wait 'til you see the interior at night, very cool. All controls are easy and logical with handy twist KNOBS for both audio volume and HVAC temp, thanks GM as this is not always the case (even my '07 Acura had succumbed to a maddening button sea for HVAC). GM touchscreen and voice commands are also easy with no fuss. // One caveat: the seat leather is not a top-grade hand vs. Acura/Volvo, but with TourX incentive pricing at $10k-25k (!) less when comparably equipped, it's VERY easy to forget that. I also suspect the TourX leather will be that much more durable over time, esp with dogs/kids (my Acura leather had a pup puncture). Seats are very comfortable with great lumbar support for both short and long trips. I'm 49 and holding (ha!), 6'1", 185 lbs with 32" inseam (long legs/waist) and no complaints on headroom either. And there is knee room leftover in back seat when I sit directly behind my driver's seat. Easily enough room for wife + her stuff, dogs + their stuff (or sub your kids!), + camping gear/luggage inside on a major mountain adventure without anything being sardined. PLUS there's primo real estate on floor behind front seats with rear seats down (and they lay FLAT, YESS!) // As an FYI: there's a TSB on the front lower control arms for the 2018 and (maybe?) 2019; bushings rub in moderate to heavy braking in temps below 40ºF. GM has addressed this with newly engineered parts that fix the issue. I'm good with this as GM owned it early and with zero baloney. Inconsequential. I took mine to dealer the other day. Parts are on order, it'll be fixed next week. // Low to ground means it handles great and easy entry/exit for ageing dogs. Cool. Ground clearance is close to 6" which is fine to get to the trailhead for us. It's not a Jeep nor does it pretend to be a Subie. If you like a bit more refined + copious capability/utility, TourX is made for you. TourX ride is buttery smooth and amazingly quiet (no anemic CVT, thanks!); others in mine have commented on smooth/quiet as well – and unprompted. I've put about 1000 miles on my TourX including a 4-hour road trip. I'm still excited to take it out every time. GM has under-marketed it, so you don't see them and *nobody* knows what they are...but I don't mind that because I like hearing, "Wow, that's a cool wagon, what is it?!" That, and I have yet to spy more than one out in the wild in the past year. Go drive one and see for yourself. But shhh...don't tell too many people! Enjoy.
