    2019 Buick Regal TourX Sells Better than Expected, Has Brand's Wealthiest Buyers

    Very interesting!

    A representative from Buick revealed that Regal TourX buyers have the highest average income of any of the brand's products. He even noted that TourX buyers' average income is higher than the Buick Enclave Avenir, the extra-plush variant of the three-row crossover and the most expensive vehicle in Buick's lineup. To put the price difference into perspective, the most expensive Regal TourX starts at $35,995, while the Enclave Avenir starts at $54,695.

    Besides selling to people of some means, the Regal TourX has proven to be more popular than Buick expected. Buick's representative said that initial estimates were that the wagon would make up about 25% of sales, but it's actually making up about 40%. Buick has sold 3,408 Regals in total this year, so that means about 1,400 of them were TourX wagons. Over 2018, Buick sold 14,118 Regals, meaning a little over 5,600 of them were TourXs based on the percentage.

    Surprising, but still not many sold. I'd love to see the average age of the buyer of the Tour X vs. the Enclave Avenier.

    CUVs have become vulgar boxes for plebs.

    Wagons are preferred for understated elegance.

    The TourX is such a cool vehicle, too bad it won't be around too long.

    Yeah only seen a handful, maybe three, two of which were TourX (eastern LI, NY). Too bad, nice cars, I sat in them at a car show. Ive seen them under $20K Certified used with very low miles on autotrader.

    I like the overall look of them. Only complaints are the engine, and 90's era black plastic. Probably look much better with body painted flares.

    It's a nice car but would be better if Buick got rid of the cladding and tried pushing them a little harder. The local dealer usually has one or two on the lot and they sit for a while. I've only seen a couple on the streets since it came out as well.

    Amusingly, the only one I've ever seen on the road with my own eyes was crossing Woodward in B-ham near 14 Mile. The rear hatch was open and fruit was spilling out the back.

    But it was gorgeous.

    If it wasn't an Opel, then Buick wouldn't have it available to sell.

    I hope it sells like crazy, and makes a Buick product planner think twice about only selling Sino-centric CUVs.

    Definitely. And the GSi wagon (estate) is the best looking variant in the entire Insignia lineup:
