Hatching Soon: 2018 Buick Regal Sportback Starts at $25,915, TourX Wagon at $29,995 ""

By | June 28, 2017

Buick has enticed us with its new-for-2018 Regal lineup, which includes stylish hatchback and wagon body styles to replace the old Regal sedan. Now we have pricing for the Regal Sportback hatch and the Regal TourX station wagon, both of which will start under $30,000 when they go on sale later this year. The base-model Sportback rings in at $25,915, more than $2000 below last year’s base Regal sedan, while the TourX, which has standard all-wheel drive, starts at $29,995. 

The base Regal Sportback is the 1SV, which comes standard with keyless entry and push-button start, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a backup camera, and 17-inch wheels. The $28,590 Preferred adds a power driver’s seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, while also opening up the possibility for all sorts of option packages. For $30,590, the Preferred II trim gains dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, remote start, a heated steering wheel, and 18-inch wheels with wider tires. Sitting at the top of the Sportback lineup is the Essence, at $32,590, which comes with a few extra standard features including heated front seats and a power passenger seat.

All 2018 Regals are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower, but there are a few powertrain configurations past that. Front-wheel-drive Sportbacks come with a nine-speed automatic, while all-wheel-drive Sportbacks and all TourX wagons have an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is a $1950 option on the Sportback Preferred II and $2050 extra on the Sportback Essence trim.

In keeping with its rugged-wagon image, every Regal TourX trim level has all-wheel drive as standard, starting with the $29,995 TourX 1SV. The wagon’s trim levels mostly mirror the sedan’s, with the $33,575 TourX Preferred and $35,945 TourX Essence adding commensurate levels of equipment. There’s plenty of price overlap with the TourX’s closest competitor, the Subaru Outback; although the Subie starts at a much lower $26,810 for 2018, its better-equipped trim levels run into the mid-$30,000 range, with the six-cylinder Outback 3.6R starting at $36,310.

Still to come—we hope—is a high-performance Regal GS variant, which should be released within the next few months. Even without that addition, though, we’re eager to drive these intriguing new Buicks, which arrive at dealerships this fall.
