2018 Buick Regal TourX is a wagon that’s ready to hit the dirt


The 2018 Buick Regal TourX starts at $29,995.   

All TourX models pack a 250-horsepower, turbocharged I4 and all-wheel drive.     

The eight-speed automatic is smooth, swapping gears relatively unbeknownst to the driver.     

In general, the cabin is very well isolated and pavement is the main factor in whether or not occupants will encounter road noise.    

We spent several miles blasting down gravel and dirt roads, and the TourX did just fine, returning a bit of movement in the cabin and adding a bit of noise to the equation.    

There’s a standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that almost always has great coverage, and a 7-inch touchscreen is standard with an optional 8-incher.     

While the rear seats might get two USB ports for charging, the front has to make do with a single port under the center armrest.     

The infotainment system is capable, it still relies on GM’s old UX, which is slowly being replaced. It should arrive at Buick later this year.    

For some dumb reason, though, the most important safety systems — namely, autobrake — require the highest trim level and an additional $2,500-ish in options.
