Buick’s new wagon, the 2018 Regal TourX will come with an MSRP of $29,995 including delivery charges as reported by CarsDirect earlier this week. Its base model or the 1SV trim is set to be the more affordable choice between other expensive brands like Audi’s A4 Allroad, the Volvo Cross Country wagon, Subaru Outback or even Volkswagen’s Golf Alltrack wagon model. Currently, the pricing for some of these wagons start at $45,475 for Audi and $37,145- $42,696 for the Volvo.
The new base model, including the entire Regal TourX range, will pack a standard 250hp and 265lb-ft of torque 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and all- wheel- drive layout. All versions will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission while the set of 18-inch wheels, active noise cancellation and push start button have also been included in the setup.
For the price of $33,575 (or an additional $3,850), Buick offers the Regal TourX Preferred 1SB with more color options aside from the standard silver, white and black body paints. Those come in addition to the door sill plates, power driver’s seat, leather wrapped steering wheel and auto-dimming rearview mirror that are all part of the package.
A little extra $1,200 can get you a panoramic moonroof while another $1,240 will include a suite of driver’s assistance features such as rear park assist, cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.
At $35,945, the TourX Essence 1SL has been already equipped with dual zone auto climate control, bigger touch screen monitor (with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration) and standard leather upholstery. Also for a total of $38,860, the Regal TourX Essence has been added with adaptive cruise control and other safety features. The list consists of pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist and forward collision alert w/ automatic emergency braking just to name a few.
The TourX sets a new standard for luxury wagons as it comes with more affordable starting price unlike other competing brands. With up to 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space (on folded seats), Buick is also trying to entice buyers into choosing the TourX over Volkswagen and Subaru wagons. Given that not all Regals come cheap, the TourX Preferred 1SB is still affordable and packs a lot of features.
Moreover, Buick ditches the old sedan body style over two new hatchback variants to include in the all-new Regal lineup. The Regal Sportback, with a starting price of $25,915, is cheaper by at least $2,000 than the previous sedan’s base variant. Its new trims include the Sportback Preferred II and Sportback Essence. Both hatchback and station wagon models will go on sale later this year.
