Report: 2018 Buick Regal TourX Wagon Starts From $29,995

Buick is trying to make a splash with the 2018 Regal lineup and improve its visibility over its little-noticed predecessor.

First, it unveiled in April the rakish Regal Sportback five-door and rugged Regal TourX lifted wagon. Now it seems the TourX is going to be priced aggressively against the king of rugged wagons: the Subaru Outback.

According to CarsDirect, the 2018 Buick Regal TourX will start at $29,995 with destination charge when it goes on sale late this year. The base, newspaper-special TourX 1SV will include the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower, 8-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, as well as a universal home remote and 18-inch wheels.

For $33,575, the Preferred model adds a power driver’s seat and is available with a panoramic moonroof and driver assistance technologies, which CarsDirect believes will make it the model most buyers will gravitate towards on dealer lots. A top-level Essence model with desirable options such as leather upholstery and automatic emergency braking is expected to be priced from $38,860.

All of which is interesting because this means the Regal TourX is priced to be more of a competitor to the Subaru Outback and Volkswagen Golf Alltrack (similarly equipped models are between the $28,000 and $38,000 range), rather than the more upscale Audi A4 Allroad and Volvo V60 Cross Country (at north of $40,000 to start). Consider it’s noticeably larger than the Volvo and VW and about as powerful as the Audi, and Buick is apparently seeking more of a mainstream audience like that of the Subaru.

We’ll have to get a chance to drive the TourX when it shows up later this year to know more, but things look promising for wagon-starved Americans in 2018.

We’ve reached out to Buick to confirm the pricing information.

  • SORRY BUT BUICK AND CLADDING DON’T MIX. MESSES UP AN OTHERWISE NICE LOOKING CAR.

    • Sorry, could you speak up? I didn’t hear your comment.

          Maybe if you dropped your gimmick and acted normal, maybe you wouldn’t have a problem.

            I don’t know of any browser today that doesn’t have a zoom feature. I’d hate to think you’re like this on every website you use.

        • No sniping, just conversation.

          But how does cladding not work for Buick now? There’s been an SUV of sorts in the line for 15 years now. And this is definitely better looking than any of their SUVs in my book.

          • WELL BUICK HAS NEVER BEEN A COMPANY THAT GOES AFTER THE ROUGH AND TUMBLE CROWD. JUST DOESN’T SEEM TO FIT THEIR IMAGE. IT’S A SLEEK LOOKING WAGON. SINCE WE WONT SEE AN OPEL/VAUXHALL WE WONT GET A CHANCE TO SEE IT UNMOLESTED.

    This is going to be good for Buick.

  • Rocket

    I’m excited about another wagon option, but not with the turbo four. PLEASE, Buick … offer the Essence with the V6.

  • Bash

    That small piece of cladding glued on the rear door!, can’t imagine that it won’t fall off often.

  • DGC

    For the sake of wagons, I hope they sell lots of these! It would only lead to more wagons/estates for North America! Wagons rule, SUVs drool…..
