It’s been a long time coming. The U.S. will see its first station wagon from General Motors since the demise of the of the CTS wagon years ago in the form of a Buick Regal. And new spy shots show the Regal TourX wagon ahead of its debut.
There’s no denying this is the Buick Regal TourX, despite full camouflage being applied. The front grille mimics the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer, but the badge fixed upon it is undeniable a Buick tri-shield. The camo also does its best to try and distort the final design, but we’re nearly certain the Regal TourX will be a carbon copy of the Insignia Sports Tourer when it does show face.
Earlier this month, the California Air Resources Board confirmed the existence of the Regal TourX in a certificate for the vehicle’s powertrain. That report indicated a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood sending power to an all-wheel drive system. Though, we don’t know for certain how Buick will spec the TourX.
We do know, however, that Buick plans to reveal the 2018 Regal on April 4, ahead of the 2017 New York International Auto Show. Whether the TourX is part of the day’s reveal remains to be seen, though.
