Outstanding features

U.S. sedan sales are circling the drain, and Buick's SUV lineup is strong and growing. Nobody expected it to sell many Regals, so the brand rolled the dice on a couple of unusual body styles, the TourX wagon and its stablemate the fastback Regal Sportback.

Buick added about an inch to the TourX's ride height and put cladding around the wheel wells, but the wagon remains a convenient height that should be easy for anybody from little kids to the elderly to enter and exit. The liftover into the cargo area is similarly convenient. At 32.7 cubic feet, there's more space behind the rear seat than in the Audi A4 Allroad, 330i wagon and Volvo V90.
