Want to talk about "under the radar"...look it up in the dictionary of phrases, and you will see a photo of the TourX! True story...I'm cruising down the 405 in LA, and I see this really cool wagon. It's got great lines, a slightly higher ride and cladding around the wheel wells that say "All of my wheels are getting power." I don't see a name on the car anywhere! So I speed up to see what's on the front grille...and to my surprise, I see the 3-shield Buick logo. (I should note that nowhere on the car does is say "Buick.") I own a construction and development company. I don't have to haul any construction material...I leave that to my guys who are more capable than me. But I have always liked wagons. (My second car is a 1996 Bronco...the first real SUV.) I've had an Audi A6 All-Wheel (yes..that's right, the 16 gauge shotgun of cars, the A-6) and a Mercedes C240 wagon. As much as I hate to admit it, I'm my dad...the guy who only buys 2nd-hand cars. But despite all that...I HAD to have me one of them dang Buicks! I'll spare you the misery of how I vacillated back and forth on a Tesla Model 3, an Mercedes E350 Wagon before pulling the trigger on my TourX. I couldn't be happier. Ten things you need to know about the TourX 1. It's made in Germany, but the engine is American and the transmission is Japanese. 2. Don't listen to those reviewers bitching about "plastic" cladding. It looks damn good, as it does also on the Audi, Volvo and Subaru. 3. Yes...I wish it rode a couple of inches higher, but being lower it handles like no other wagon out there. 4. Go for the Essence trim. It's worth it. 5. Another shout out to the reviewers...I have no problem with the "GM" Chevrolet-ish leather. It has that great American new car smell, and my kids and dogs are not going to scuff it up. 6. If you want to keep the engine running at stops, put the car into neutral. 7. 73.5 cubic feet of storage! Need I say more? 8. Zero to 60 in 6.4 seconds! Come on Man!..this ain't your Daddy's Estate Wagon! 9. Turbo-charged 2.0 liter pumping out 250 horses to all wheels via double clutch at 295 torque lb/ft and 8 forward gears! 10. I'll leave #10 up to you. The TourX is for those vote "no" to SUVs and mini-vans. It's American enough...GM repatriates it's profits back to the U.S.A. Even though I enjoy flying under the radar, I want Buick to sell enough TourX's, that it does not go the way of the Cadillac, Acura and soon to be BMW wagons.
