- 2018 Buick Regal TourX For Sale In San Diego
Buick introduces the new Buick Regal TourX for 2018. GM calls the TourX a crossover, but many automotive reviewers content it’s really a wagon. The TourX is based on the Regal Sportback, and takes a few cues from crossovers, with increased ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive. It’s inspired by competitors such as the Audi Allroad and Volvo V60 Cross Country. We don’t think this is a bad thing. We’ll leave the issue of whether the 2018 Regal TourX is a crossover or a wagon to others. One thing’s for sure, the San Diego Buick Dealer expects the Regal TourX to be a popular model this year.
The TourX is larger than the Regal Sportback, with more attractive styling. There’s more room for passengers to stretch out and get comfortable. According to Buick, the TourX not only has more cargo space than other wagons, it rivals many compact luxury crossovers. And the 2018 Buick Regal TourX sells for a lot less than its SUV competitors. You may have been wondering: Can I find the Regal TourX at a car dealer near me? If so, we’re happy to report that all Buick dealerships should have the TourX in their inventory.

Consumer Reports wrote: “The TourX’s calling card is the massive, nicely finished cargo space. Buick claims that the TourX has more cargo volume than the Audi A4 Allroad, BMW 3 Series Sport Wagon, Subaru Outback, and Volvo V60 Cross Country. A power liftgate is standard, and it can be opened with a touch-free wave of the driver's foot beneath the back of the car.”
The 2018 Buick Regal TourX seats five and comes in three trim levels: base, Preferred and Essence. All-wheel drive is standard across the board. Powering the TourX is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is estimated by the EPA at 21 mpg city/20 mpg highway.*

Standard features on all models include 18-inch alloy wheels push-button start, fog lights and keyless entry. Tech features that come standard include OnStar with 4G LTE and a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a Bose audio system, active-noise cancellation and a rearview camera. Buick’s Active Hood Pedestrian Safety System is also standard. This novel safety feature uses sensors behind the grille to detect an impending impact with a pedestrian when the TourX is driving between 16 and 30 mph. When an impact occurs, the system lifts the rear of the hood four inches, proving somewhat of a cushion for the pedestrian to land on.
The Preferred trim gets an eight-way-power driver’s seat, a three-spoke steering wheel, an auto-dimming mirror and sill plates. The Essence trim includes dual-zone climate control, a heated steering wheel, heated seats, a hands-free power liftgate and remote start.
The available Sights and Sound package comes with a premium audio system, navigation and HD radio. Buyers who opt for the Preferred or Essence models can take advantage of the optional Driver Confidence package, which includes LED headlights with cornering, wireless charging, rear park assist, lane-change alert with blind-spot warnings, rear cross-traffic alert, seat and mirror memory settings, outside heated mirrors and four-way-power lumbar support for the driver.
