2019 Buick Regal TourX Wagon Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

Since its first launch 10 years ago, the Buick Regal TourX has been offering 'Regal' features for the prices it's been offered at. While it got a major update last year, the new Regal packs in a lot more punch than ever before. Buick had thoroughly updated the Regal in 2018 and the 2019 version comes in with not much changes from where it left in 2018.

2019 Buick Regal TourX Wagon Engine

You don't expect much performance from a utility car such as the Regal TourX, but there's more here than meets the eye–Edmunds.com

Engine and Transmission

Like the Current crop of utility wagons in the market, the Buick Regal TourX comes powered by a 4 pot motor that develops 250hp and 295 ft-lbs of Torque. The Motor is turbocharged and delivers a lot of punch for its size. What is surprising is the fact that the engine is always eager to rev hard and go the extra mile while delivering the best performance at all times. The NVH levels are well contained and it’s only at very high RPM’s that the sound creeps in the Cabin.

Transmission duties are performed by an 8 Speed Conventional Automatic Unit. In terms of feel, the Auto Gearbox shifts effortlessly and the start stop system is well equipped to respond to understand the gear changes. The Throttle response is dull in the standard mode but shift the gearbox in the Auto mode and the throttle becomes lively to respond.

Acceleration

The Powerful 4 Cylinder Pot of the Buick ensures super quick acceleration figures from its motor, from the word GO. With a time of just 6.4 seconds to do the 60MPH dash from the standstill, the Buick ranks amongst the fastest cars in our comparison today. What is even surprising is the fact that the engine provides enough grunt, to make the Buick do the quarter mile in just 14.7 seconds.

Overall, the Buick is beaten by the performance oriented Mini JCW while the Subaru and the Volvo, take their own sweet time to complete the 60 MPH dash and the quarter mile as well.

Ride and Handling

In terms of the Ride Quality and Comfort, the Buick gets high marks on the same front. You get typical Buick Ride Comfort in the Regal Tour X and the Road Noise is well isolated from the Interiors. Pass over a bump and the suspension handles those with immense confidence, not allowing much body roll or wobbliness.

The Handling isn’t outright sporty but will make you take the corners easily without losing much confidence considering the lower amount of Body Roll and the well-tuned suspension. The Low Ground clearance gives it a heads up in the handling and makes the Regal handle more like a Sedan than a wagon.

Braking

Braking performance of the Regal Tour X ranks among the Best in the category. With a 125ft stopping distance from 60-0, the Tour X’s brakes offer good stopping power at all times.

The Brakes are progressive and feel quite smooth to apply during panic or hard braking. The Brake Pedal is firm and still maintains enough reserve force, even when stopping from highway speeds suddenly.

2019 Buick Regal TourX Wagon Interior

7.5/10

Buick’s 2019 Regal TourX crossover SUV aims for a premium vibe with a handsome interior that is both modern and clean-KBB.com

Ergonomics and Comfort

Buick says that the Tour X can house 5 people in it. Sure the Buick can do it but Tall people may find the Regal, a little claustrophobic on the inside due to the sloping roof line. The Legroom in the front and Rear will be more than adequate for most people but the Armrests add to the narrow feeling of the Cabin. The Driving Position can be adjusted in a variety of ways and most people will find the perfect setting, according to their height.

The Seats inside the Regal are firmer than most of the Cars that we have compared it against today and the lack of cushioning further downgrades the comfort. The Shape of the Seats are just about average and will be best suited for people with Slimmer profiles.

Cargo volume

The 32.7 cubic Feet of Cargo Volume Space makes the Regal, one of the most practical wagons in the segment. Despite it being low on space as compared to the Full Fledged SUV, the Outback, the Regal manages to outsmart all other rivals comfortably in this aspect. What sweetens the deal is the flat folding rear seats that reveals gargantuan amounts of space.

The 2019 Regal TourX is a handsome vehicle with flowing lines and a sleek rake to the roof that give it a far sportier look than even coupe-inspired SUVs- KBB.com

Design and Dimensions

In terms of the Design, the Buick Regal Tour X is one of the best looking wagons, out there in the market today. There is Chrome used aplenty in the front and the Black Wheel Arch flares, gives the Wagon a rugged feel. There are sharp lines which flow across the body of the Wagon including the roof, which enhances the sporty appeal of the Wagon and makes it look less boring.
