Which Regal TourX does Edmunds recommend?

The base Regal TourX might be fine if you just want a no-frills utility wagon that you don't mind treating rough, but it doesn't come with power seats, leather upholstery, automatic climate control or even a leather-wrapped wheel — that is, most of the premium near-luxury features you expect in a Buick. The Preferred trim gives you more features at a still palatable price and is also eligible for more desirable options like driver aids and upgraded infotainment features.

Overall rating

7.6 / 10

Today's vehicle of choice for a lot of utility-seeking shoppers is the crossover SUV. Yet here is the 2019 Buick Regal TourX, from the same automaker that made station wagons a staple of American roads in the 1970s.

The TourX isn't quite the behemoth vessel that Detroit factories once stamped out with prolific ease, however. It's much smaller and uses a turbo four-cylinder engine. It's not even American. Instead it's a rebadged sport wagon from Germany.

But that doesn't matter. The Regal TourX's appeal lies in how it deftly straddles the worlds of crossover SUV and sedan. Standard all-wheel drive enables some ability in the dirt, although just-average ground clearance hinders truly useful off-road ability. And like the Regal Sportback sedan on which it's based, the TourX is larger and more stylish, and it's a more compelling entry in the luxury segment than earlier Regals.

The TourX's cargo space matches, and often outclasses, the capacity of many compact luxury SUVs. And compared to those SUVs, it offers a lower roof height and load height. If you're not sold on the tall stance of most crossovers, the 2019 Buick Regal TourX makes a compelling alternative.

Notably, we picked the 2019 Buick Regal Tour X as one of Edmunds' Best Luxury Cars for this year.

2019 Buick Regal TourX models

The 2019 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's 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's 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, a cabin air cleaner/ionizer, 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.

Comfort7.5
Interior7.5
Utility7.5
Technology7.5

Driving

7.5
You don't expect much performance from a utility car such as the Regal TourX, but there's more here than meets the eye. With its low center of gravity and roots in a lively European sedan, the TourX impresses with its handling and balance. It's slow to get moving but can hustle once underway.

Acceleration

7.5
The TourX surges forward eagerly from low and middling speeds, after its turbo has had a chance to spin up, but it begins to run out of steam a bit at the top end. At our test track, the TourX sprinted to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, which isn't a bad result but about a half-second slower than a Volvo V90.

Braking

8.0
Brake pedal feels smooth and progressive even during hard stops. There's no chattering or crabbing when stopping from highway speeds. The firm pedal inspires confidence that plenty of braking force remains in reserve. At our test track, the TourX slowed from 60 mph to a stop in 123 feet, a good result.

Steering

7.0
The steering is quick, accurate and sharper than the steering in most crossovers thanks to its sport sedan roots. Some artificial heft lends a sportier feel. The steering wheel tracks straight with good on-center feel and stability at highway speeds. Low-speed assist makes it easy to maneuver the long wheelbase in tighter spaces.

Handling

7.5
While we wouldn't call it sporty, it's surprisingly composed through corners exhibiting less body roll than you might expect from a car of this size. Since the TourX's ground clearance is relatively low, it also handles more like a sedan, not like an all-terrain wagon with a long cargo area.

Drivability

7.5
Self-shifting in the TourX's S automatic mode livens up acceleration since regular automatic mode tends to dull throttle response. But drivers who prefer to let the car do the work won't be disappointed by the smooth-shifting transmission. It's not a performance-oriented box, but it's competent.

Off-road

7.0
The TourX comes standard with all-wheel drive and can handle some slippery roads, but it's no substitute for more rugged wagons such as the Subaru Outback or even the smaller Volkswagen Alltrack or Audi A4 Allroad. Leave the dirt trails to the others; the TourX belongs on pavement.

Comfort

7.5
Comfort is a Buick specialty, and the TourX is no different. But this isn't a Buick boat ride of yesteryear. It's a buttoned-down and quiet ride that, despite the impressive handling capability, delivers trademark Buick ride comfort. There's a bit more wind noise than we'd expect, though.

Seat comfort

7.0
The seats feel a little firm, and in the case of our test model, the new leather upholstery isn't especially pliable. The seat cushions are also a bit narrow and best for those with slimmer figures. The shape of the seats themselves is OK, but larger bodies will wish for something wider.

Ride comfort

8.0
The ride is settled and nicely isolated from the road without being completely shut out. It remains controlled over bumpy sections of road, with no swaying, rolling or heaving. The TourX doesn't feel like a sport wagon or a luxury wagon — just nicely buttoned-down straight down the middle.

Noise & vibration

7.5
The car suppresses tire and road noise in classic Buick fashion, but the factory-issued roof racks contribute more wind noise than you'd expect. It's a small trade-off given the utility of the racks and hardly a deal-breaker, but it's slightly out of character for the brand's trademark cabin hush.

Climate control

7.5
The A/C blows cold on the softest setting, which is actually more fan than necessary for the lowest speed. The cabin cools quickly, with nice big vents up front and two in the rear center console. Hard buttons handle most controls but some basic functions, such as mode selection, are buried in the touchscreen.

Interior

7.5
The TourX's long and low look is a bit deceptive since the cabin isn't quite as roomy as the exterior suggests. It's more midsize sedan than adventure wagon but still offers ample headroom and legroom. Inside, the controls are logical and within easy reach, and it's easy to find a comfortable position.

Ease of use

7.5
A streamlined instrument panel puts all of the controls close at hand. Fortunately, there aren't too many to deal with, as most functions are integrated into the touchscreen, which can sometimes be a menu-diving nightmare. But the Regal offers a handful of hard buttons for most often-used features.

Getting in/getting out

7.5
The roof may be low, but the TourX is slightly lifted and its doors open wide. Front passengers will have no trouble getting in or out. But the roofline begins to taper around the rear seat's halfway point, and taller passengers may need to duck into the cabin.

Driving position

8.0
Even 6-foot-plus drivers should have no problem finding a comfortable position in the TourX. The seats offer a wide variety of power adjustments, with tilting lower cushions and power lumbar. The steering column tilts and telescopes with good range.

Roominess

7.5
Even with decent foot- and legroom in the front and rear, it feels a bit narrow in the seats and armrests. There's good space between the front passenger and the door panel and decent rear headroom even as the roof starts to slope down. It's not claustrophobic, but it's not as airy as you'd expect.

Visibility

7.0
A rising beltline (where the side windows begin), thick middle and rear pillars, and bulky cargo-area side panels all compromise rearward visibility. But there's a lot of glass, and the views out the sides aren't bad. A large rear window helps mitigate the right rear blind spot.

Quality

7.5
The interior looks and feels solid, with enough soft-touch material to cushion elbows and knees from plastic panels. The upholstery and trim, such as the sapele-like wood grain center console, impart a classy feel. But knobs, switches and buttons from the GM parts bin undermine the TourX's premium vibe.

Utility

7.5
With cargo space as large as that of most compact crossovers, the TourX is a lifestyle vehicle that can haul toys, tools, and just about anything the weekend can throw at you. Small-item storage is a bit limited, but the massive cargo hold and roof racks will inspire ideas for long road trips.

Small-item storage

7.0
There's surprisingly not much room for personal effects. The center console isn't very large or deep but does offer a device holder and USB port, although this effectively sequesters your phone out of sight. There are two cupholders, and each door panel offers a molded cut-out for a drink bottle.

Cargo space

8.0
With 32.7 cubic feet of cargo space (73.5 cubic feet max with rear seats folded down), the TourX is a legit lifestyle machine. That's just a bit less space than the Honda CR-V, the class-leading cargo hauler among compact crossovers. There's even enough room for two adults to stretch out comfortably in the back with rear seats folded.

Child safety seat accommodation

8.0
Lower anchors under each outboard seat live close to the surface under upholstery flaps for easy access. All three rear seatbacks have top tether anchors on the back side of the seat. There's plenty of room fore and aft, and side to side, for a variety of infant and rear- and front-facing convertible seats.

Technology

7.5
The TourX's software and aesthetics are standard GM fare: functional but showing age. But the blend of navigation, smartphone integration and Wi-Fi hotspot gives the Buick excellent tech utility for everyday driving and longer trips. It's missing some of today's more common driver safety aids, however.

Audio & navigation

7.5
The nav system has good graphics with 3D view and pinch-zoom function. It's slick but looks a bit dated compared to its rivals. A 7-inch touchscreen is standard, but the Essence trim offers an 8-inch display. Bose audio puts a subwoofer in the spare tire well but still sounds flat. It also offers only three tone controls.

Smartphone integration

8.0
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are nice inclusions. There are three USB ports (two are charge only) to keep devices juiced up. The music library is browsable via Bluetooth, a nice feature not widely offered. But you can't browse podcasts via Bluetooth, which is an odd limitation.

Driver aids

7.5
Our car came equipped with parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The latter is handy, given the car's compromised visibility. Other safety aids such as automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist cost extra, even on this Essence top trim level.

Voice control

8.0
The native software offers a basic set of phone, media and nav commands and recognizes natural speech well. More in-depth functions, such as listing traffic incidents, still require touchscreen. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto offers more functionality, but the TourX platform still provides a good overall set of features.

Essence 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
I love this car more every time I drive it. I have the Essence trim. With the smooth, quiet, ride and the Bose sound system, it's an experience. The handling is superb. It is very fun to drive.... you wouldn't know it's a wagon. I've had it for 2 months and have forgotten about the limited storage space and the low profile. There is no better value on the market for the ride, handling, fuel economy, and comfort.

Sweet looking, but has a few issues
Dave,05/09/2019
Essence 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
First off, my largest compliant is: there is literally zero storage space for small personal items. If you have the sun roof, you also lose the sun glass holder. I guess the German cars are not for carrying small items that need to be stashed away (Keys, change, cell phones, employee badge, etc. Second, the front end makes a lot of noise. Lots of crunching when you drive over uneven pavement especially at lower speeds and if braking when the weight transfers forward. Just annoying. Third, when you start it cold, it really sounds like it is struggling to provide power until it warms up. The first 1 mile just feels painful to the little engine that wants too. Other than those items - I love it. It looks awesome, turns heads, ride nice, handles well, gets good gas mileage, has enough power and is fun to drive. The AWD works great in the winter as well.

Essence 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Wanted something different from all the SUV's out there and wow, this car is fantastic. Super comfy for long road trips and really quiet on the highway. The turbo engine has a lot of pick-up even using regular fuel. We ordered the sunroof and it's HUGE with a great power cover. We also love all the safety features and this thing turns heads everywhere we go and is really enjoyable to drive. GM should really advertise this great car more.

Great SUV/Crossover alternative
Wagon Fan,05/10/2019
Essence 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Draws more attention than a Volvo V90 wagon, for $25k less. Just as capable, and when optioned correctly, just as full featured and luxurious. Materials in the interior may be a slight step down, but overall a great value. Quiet, composed ride with more than enough power. Unless you plan to off road often, this vehicle's AWD works great. And you won't see yourself coming and going either. Dealers are willing to discount these right now too. One year in and this vehicle still impresses. A couple of small issues like the infotainment system pre-sets not always working, the reverse camera guide lines disappearing during back-up, and still waiting for a replacement for damaged passenger side mirror, but mechanically it has been great, 34 MPG on a couple road trips. Would recommend if anyone is considering the TourX, get one now as GM will not sell them after this year, pity.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Buick Regal TourX?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
