The 2019 Buick Regal: Sportback, TourX, and GS

There are three distinct versions of the 2019 Buick Regal which should all be taken into account before a car buyer commits to a new Buick in 2019. Though they are all built on the same basic model of Regal, these versions offer something a little different for different type of buyers. These include the 2019 Buick Regal Sportback, the 2019 Buick Regal TourX, and the 2019 Buick Regal GS. The Sportback is a midsize car with a hatchback trunk, the TourX is a wagon version of the Regal that comes with AWD, and the GS is a luxury sedan for those who require a little extra in their ride.

To understand these unique versions of the 2019 Buick Regal a little better, take a look below:

The 2019 Buick Regal Sportback

The total cargo capacity of this car is 60.7 cu. feet. Golf clubs and grocery bags alike are easy to access and store with the hatchback configuration, and its coupe-like styling hides the fact that this sedan is really a hatchback.
