GM's near-premium brand offers family-minded buyers a svelte crossover alternative.
The American wagon is back, albeit in a form friendlier to today's car buyers.
This is the 2018 Buick Regal TourX.
It's meant to compete against the likes of the Audi Allroad and Volvo V60 Cross Country.
A 7-inch infotainment system is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Instead of just being a wagon, it's been lifted by an inch or so, and there's some additional body cladding on the lower portion.
It's like a fancy Subaru Outback, in that respect.
Apparently, all it takes to sell a wagon is a bit more ride height. Who knew?
Buick knew, which is why the TourX is the only Regal wagon to come to the US. There's a more traditional wagon variant in Europe, but it's not coming here.
All Regals come standard with an active hood that tilts up after detecting a collision to mitigate pedestrian injuries.
The 2018 Buick Regal TourX lands at dealerships this fall. Click or swipe through for more pics from Buick.
