- Highs Excellent cargo capacity, stylish sheetmetal, serene cabin.
- Lows Rival models offer better fuel economy, desirable driver-assistance features aren't offered on base models, competing wagons provide higher ground clearance.
- Verdict Though its rivals offer more luxury and higher ground clearance, the TourX impresses with its quiet cabin, sleek exterior design and generous cargo capacity.
Wagons may not be as popular as they once were, but they're still very much alive and kicking. Based on the Regal Sportback sedan, the Buick Regal TourX is one of the more recent entries in this segment, and it offers many of the strengths that have made wagons a sought-after form of family transportation over the years. The 2020 Buick Regal TourX is similar to a crossover in that it provides copious amounts of cargo space. However, as with all wagons, the Regal TourX rides closer to the ground than the typical SUV. One benefit of this distinction is a roof rack that's lower and easier to access than a crossover's. The 2020 Regal TourX also delivers the quiet cabin you expect from a Buick, and its sculpted exterior styling is sure to win some fans.
What's New for 2020?
The Regal TourX carries over into the 2020 model year with no major changes.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Unfortunately, key driver-assistance features aren't available with the base-model Regal TourX. You need to step up to the Preferred model to access amenities such as blind-spot monitoring, and this is the trim level we'd recommend for the average buyer. The Regal TourX Preferred rides on 18-inch wheels and it comes with exterior features such as fog lights, integrated roof rails, automatic headlights, and heated power-adjustable side mirrors. Within its cabin, dual-zone automatic climate control is standard, as well as tech amenities including a Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration. Adding the Driver Confidence package ($1240) brings in features such as auto-leveling LED headlights, rear parking sensors, a lane-departure warning system and blind-spot monitoring. A Preferred model with this package rings in at $35,135.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance
All 2020 Buick Regal TourX wagons are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant. This engine serves up 250 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels. During our track testing, the 2018 Regal TourX hustled from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 6.4 seconds. This Buick wagon goes about its business quietly, transmitting very little noise into the cabin. The Regal TourX offers 5.8 inches of ground clearance, which isn't that impressive. If you're looking for an off-road companion, you'll be happier with a rival like the Subaru Outback. Subaru's wagon provides 8.7 inches of clearance for those times you want to explore the unpaved path.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
According to EPA estimates, the 2020 Buick Regal TourX achieves mileage of 21/29 mpg city/highway. That makes it a less fuel-efficient choice than competing models such as the Outback (up to 26/33 mpg) and the Volvo V60 (23/34 mpg). In our time with the vehicle, we observed fuel economy of 22 mpg.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Buick is a premium brand that's a step above a mainstream marque but a step below a traditional luxury nameplate. Its place in the pecking order is reflected in the appearance of its cabin. The overall look of the interior is upscale, but it's not quite as opulent as the cabin of a vehicle made by a traditional luxury brand such as Audi or Volvo. You aren't likely to be disappointed with the Regal TourX's cargo capacity. This wagon offers a generous 33 cubic feet of room for your stuff with all seats in place. Fold the back seat flat and that figure swells to a robust 74 cubic feet.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The Regal TourX's base trim is equipped with features such as an infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth phone and streaming audio. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration are on hand to help you seamlessly connect your devices. Also, all models come with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and dual USB ports. The list of optional features includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a Bose eight-speaker audio system, an integrated navigation system, and satellite radio.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The 2020 Buick Regal TourX hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). However, the 2019 model received a perfect score of Good in small overlap front, moderate overlap front, and side crash-testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Regal TourX offers a modern selection of optional driver-assistance features, but the list of standard amenities in this area is almost nonexistent. Also, the base trim isn't available with the driver-assistance technology that has become essential equipment for many car shoppers. You have to step up to more expensive trim levels to access these features. Key safety features include:
- Available blind-spot monitoring
- Available adaptive cruise control
- Available lane-departure warning system
- Available forward-collision warning with automated emergency braking
- Available rear cross-traffic alert
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
The Regal TourX offers warranty coverage that equals that of the Subaru Outback. This Buick comes with a longer powertrain warranty than the Audi A4 Allroad and Volvo V60, but both these models provide longer limited-warranty coverage than the Regal TourX.
- Limited warranty covers 3 years or 36,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers 5 years or 60,000 miles
- Complimentary maintenance is covered for the first visit
