The last year was quite successful for the Buick, and exactly the same year they expect now. Actually, now they expect an even better year and record sales. They introduced four new vehicles, and one of them is the all new 2018 Buick Regal TourX. This is the latest product, and with this model, Buick will broad the brand’s lineup in the U.S. From this and also from the Encore and Cascada models Buick expect so many great things. However, today we will talk just about the Regal TourX model. The most recent model will be a crossover with the perfect appearance. According to vice president of global Buick and GMC, Duncan Aldred, this model will also provide a versatility of an SUV. Also, it will continue the trend of attainable luxury and contemporary design that is already set by Cascada and Encore models.
2018 Buick Regal TourX Exterior design
The exterior design of the forthcoming model will be quite exceptional, and everything from the outside provides a high dose of luxury. This model will ride a little bit higher than its Sportback and thanks to that fact, all the customers can expect better capability. When it comes to the dimensions, this vehicle will be 3.4 inches longer compared to the Regal Sportback which further means that we can expect a little bit longer wheelbase and more space for the passengers inside the cabin. The height and the width will most likely remain the same as in the Sportback model.
At the front side of this model, we can anticipate winged grille from Buick that will be most likely flanked by daytime running lights powered with the LEDs. Also, the headlights will be a little bit thinner and more attractive in order to provide wider appearance up front. As we know, this model is based on an Opel product, and it will share most of the features from the outside with the well known Insignia Tourer model. They are actually almost identical from the outside, except for the already mentioned grille up front.
Exterior dimensions: Wheelbase 111.4 inches, Length 196.3 inches, Width 73.3 inches, Height 58.4 inches
Buick Regal TourX 2018 Interior design
Just like the exterior design, the interior will also share most of its features with the Europe Insignia model. That is very good considering the fact that the Insignia has so many great options from the inside. First of all, let’s start from the comfort in the cabin. The comfort is on the highest level thanks to the premium materials, well shaped and very comfortable seats. All of them will use high-quality leather as the standard upholstery material. This model will also provide more cargo space compared to other competitors. We can expect around 73.5 cubic feet behind the front seats.
Some of the standard features will be smart AWD with the twin-clutch, Hill Start Assist, start on push-button, and entry. We can also expect 10 airbags, heated side mirrors as well as universal home remote. New TourX will also come with the OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. At the center of the dashboard, we can expect 7-inch info system that will be equipped with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. With the Essence trim, you can expect 1 inch larger infotainment screen with the embedded navigation. Furthermore, this model will be equipped with the Bose premium audio system with innovative subwoofer. Some of the other interesting features in the new model will be pedestrian safety system, Blind Zone Alert(side also), Cruise Control (Adaptive), Forward Collision Alert, etc.
Underneath the bonnet
Beneath the hood, this model will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This will be the only engine in the offer. It will be capable of delivering up to 250 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That is very good output when we compare it with the competition. The power from this exceptional engine will be most likely transferred to all wheels trough an eight-speed automatic transmission. As we already mention, we can expect the intelligent all-wheel-drive system as we used to see in Envision and LaCrosse.
Price and Release date
This model is already released, and the starting price is around $32.000.
