Buick has released details on the upcoming 2018 Buick Regal Tour X, one of two Regal models that will replace the current lame-o sedan (except in GS form.)
Based on the Opel Insignia, the Tour X is a station wagon with that crappy plastic cladding that makes Americans feel like big boys. It will be accompanied later by a five-door Sportback for those who want an uglier hatchback.
The Tour X is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L producing 250HP and 295LB-FT, a respectable number for a family hauler. An eight-speed, dual-clutch automatic is bolted on, with Intelligent AWD standard.
Coming in three trim levels, Tour X, Preferred and Essence, the Buick (pronounced like ‘quick’) features more overall cargo space than the Volvo V60, Audi A4 Allroad and BMW 3-Series Grand Tourer.
The Tour X will be in showrooms late this year.
