It’s been a long time coming, but Buick is back in the wagon business with the 2018 Buick Regal TourX. Boasting all the cargo room you’ll likely ever need, the Regal TourX offers a serious alternative to a crossover with just a pinch of soft-road capability.
We’re excited about it, we like it, but what about you? The Regal TourX is the source of today’s Hot or Not.
The good news is if you like the Opel Insignia Country Tourer, you’ll love the Regal TourX. It features the same, slightly raised suspension and plastic cladding to protect the body from whatever an active lifestyle throws at it. And it doesn’t deviate too much from the Regal Sportback‘s decidedly handsome looks. It’s inoffensive, sleek and we think it will age pretty gracefully.
If we had one complaint, it’s the plastic cladding itself. We understand the more rugged Insignia Country Tourer is an easier sell in a country where consumers are brainwashed into thinking the Buick Encore is a small SUV, but there’s no denying the Insignia Sports Tourer is much better looking with a traditional body and lower ground clearance. Slap a Buick badge on the Sports Tourer and we’ll be at the dealership tomorrow.
We digress, we still love the idea of a Buick wagon. Vote in our poll below and strike up a conversation in the comment section should you feel so compelled.
