The station wagon was an American icon in the 70s and 80s before SUVs ruled the automotive landscape. Thanks to its elongated structure, a wagon can comfortably fit the whole family and all of their stuff. However, wagons haven’t been popular lately, which is why models like the 2020 Buick Regal TourX went extinct. However, if you’re not afraid of the used car market, the Regal Tourx could give you the power and practicality you need.

The 2020 Buick Regal TourX offers a lot more than you would expect for the money

The Buick Regal TourX debuted in 2018 as a more practical version of the existing Regal Sportback sedan. It was three inches longer than its stablemate, so It offered up to 73.5 cubic feet of total cargo volume versus the available 31.5 cubic feet in the Regal Sportback. That’s enough space to swallow up a lot of suitcases or even a mountain bike.

Practicality aside, the Regal TourX also had plenty to offer in terms of technology. The base model had a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Stepping up to higher trim levels unlocked a larger 8-inch touchscreen paired with a Bose premium sound system and an onboard navigation system.

Anyone interested in a used Regal TourX may come across an example with the Driver Confidence package. This package came with features like auto-leveling LED headlights, rear parking sensors, a lane-departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring.

The Regal TourX had a good amount of power

Under the hood of the 2020 Buick Regal TourX was a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that made 250 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. It was paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that sent the power to all four wheels via an active twin-clutch AWD system. The folks at Car and Driver noted that the Regal TourX could hustle to 60 mph from a stop in 6.4 seconds, which isn’t slow, especially for a wagon.

However, if you’re looking for off-road capability, the Regal TourX doesn’t really have it. It only offered 5.8 inches of ground clearance, which means it’s better for cross-country driving than light overlanding. If a higher ride height is a must, the Subaru Outback could be a better choice with its 8.7 inches of ground clearance.

After all, wagons are still cool, no matter what anyone else thinks.
