  1. Hey Nathan, Great review, and I share your love for wagons. BTW, the "exploding hood" feature allows the TourX to meet government safety regulations and keep the belt line low and stylish. Otherwise, Buick would have to raise the hood by about 2 inches, which makes the front look bloated and shrinks the greenhouse space. Way cool engineering workaround.

  2. WOW !!!!
    Americans decided to put out an awesome vehicle. In Europe small and large wagons are the normal. It used to be American wagons were huge, boats, ugly, fuel guzzlers, unreliable and not very luxurious. Buick did something wonderful here. Is that a panoramic sunroof? Nothing was mentioned in the video. The drivetrain seems to be reasonable, fuel efficient with plenty of power to do normal life chores. Let’s not forget, this is a family vehicle, not a race or muscle car. Trunk space is SUV size, maybe bigger than the small SUVs.
    The interior and exterior doesn’t look bad, not sure why the complains and as for the storage space….well that’s what the huge trunk is there for. Consider the small cabby holes as clatter control for those wives that think the car is an extension to their junk pile closet. Overall, I would buy this Buick but I already have two TDI VW wagons that I absolutely love. Now that TDI engines are not in production for the US, a Buick would be a very nice choice. Me likey!!!!

  3. I sat in one at the Philadelphia Car Show and was massively disappointed. Now, it does look good! However I was expecting it to be the size of the Dodge Magnum (full sized interior) but when I got in I saw it was a smaller-ish mid size interior. Nothing as 6’4” I could sit in comfortably AND have people in the back seat. If they built this off the Lacrosse instead of the Regal I would be in love.

  4. Bought one (loaded) and this guy nails it… fantastic car regardless of the money, although it was a bargain. Sporty, fun, and I traded in a BMW for it…. No regrets at all

  5. Great review, keep it up, but why do automobile reviewers obsess with the exhaust pipes? It is a wagon, most wagon owners are going to care less about it. (Actually for a lot of regular car buyers, same story, what I want from a car is fast and smooth acceleration without a lot of noise (better to hear the sound system than the engine laboring)).

  6. Lol 7 inches ground clearance. I took my Outback off-road last weekend, the only mod: Yokohama Geolandar AT tires. The TourX won’t even make it to where the gravel turned to mud.

  7. I've always been a sucker for a wagon. Had a 62 Falcon wagon project car 20 odd years ago … had an 87 Crown Vic wagon about a decade ago that I STILL miss. Really enjoyed the Dodge Magnum we had as a work vehicle a few years back too. My brother had a 78 Colony Park wagon for a long time too. (Yes, with the 'fuel sipping' 460.) Wagons beat SUVs every day of the week. I hope the SUV trend dies off a bit and the wagons make a comeback. Right now you really don't have many options outside of the upscale/premium cars if you want one.

  8. i think your trunk figures are wrong, 33 cubic feet is 934 litres and the Vauxhall Insignia estate (same car different badge) is below 600 litres and the volume with seats down isn't 73.5 cubic feet (2081 litres) its about 1600 litres. if you Americans have the passat estate the boot space with seats up is 650 litres

  9. Couple things:

    2) STOP PUTTING THIS CHEAP-ASS PLASTIC TRIM AROUND THE WHEEL WELLS! …97% of owners have NO intentions of going "off-road" in this vehicle.

  10. Bring back the Roadmaster. I own a 96 collectors edition that I hope to finish restoring. Oh it has cubby space galore and can take a 4×8 sheet of plywood flat.

  11. Definitely the most level-headed reviews out there. I would say though that you either miss the point or pretend to miss the point that 99 percent of people who buy ___ Utility Vehicles of any variety (or sport wagons) will never even once take them off road. Now, even living in suburban Detroit, I have to admit that I have only seen ONE of these actually being driven, and it had a manufacturer plate on it!! So I have no clue how their marketing is even working, if there even is any. But I do think it's the 'right car, right time, right price' etc if only they can get it into the heads (and hands) of the right driving audience.

  12. I very much disagree with the "great bargain" comment… I find this car grossly overpriced compared to what similar cars (yes, crossovers) you can get for the money. I did a lot of checking around, you won't find this car on any lot for $29K… good luck finding anything under $38K for this car, at least for a car with anything beyond 4 wheels and an engine… to get any safety features and other modern conveniences, this wagon is going to come in around $38K… you can get a similarly loaded Crossover with all the same features and powertrain options for around $28K (albeit slightly [but not much] less cargo space). I just traded in my Dodge Magnum for a Crossover… i'm exactly the kind of guy that would have bought another wagon… but I got the same amount of car for $10K less in a Crossover. I love wagons, and I think this car looks great… but this car is no bargain.
