The evidence continues to pile regarding a Buick Regal wagon variant for its next generation. Recently, Autoblog learned the model is now undergoing focus group testing with consumers.
The brand is reportedly matching it against the Acura TSX wagon and an unnamed Volvo wagon, while we learned months back General Motors had applied to register the “Regal TourX” and “TourX” names with the USPTO. Buick also reportedly showed a Regal wagon at its latest dealer meeting.
A 2018 Buick Regal wagon wouldn’t be a tough job since cousin Opel will have an all-new wagon variant on hand and ready for rebadging.
Buick responded to the report by saying there will be three new vehicle debuts by the end of 2017, but would not comment further. If we’re making educated guesses, one is clearly a 2018 Buick Enclave, the next the 2018 Buick Regal and the other is a mystery.
The wagon could be a separate model, or be rolled under the Regal name. If it does bear a Regal name, it fuels the rumor of the Opel Astra hatchback arriving stateside as a Verano hatchback.
