Outside of the fuel economy, I’ve been really happy with the performance/smoothness of the LTG engine. I was spoiled with TDI fuel economy numbers in a smaller/lighter car, though, so it’s not a fair comparison. I see the bi turbo diesel as a huge plus, not a settle. The V6 would be a ‘settle’ for me.

Maybe one day I’ll import the front clip from a bi-turbo diesel model of this car and do a swap, but right now I’m incredibly happy.

I also come to the Regal from a VW diesel. While I do miss the fuel economy, the Regal is roomier, quieter, and more comfortable. The people on the VW diesel forums are so impressed with their "low-end torque." The 2.0 liter turbodiesel produces 237 lb-ft from 1500 - 4000 rpm; my Regal produces 260 from 1750 - 5000. (290 in the AWD version.)

I had a jetta tdi wagon 6 spd manual. Loved it. Also a BMW 328D., 50mpg highway. A little small . I agree with you the diesel would be a great option and I would take it over the 3.6L.

I think the 2.0T is fine.
Good compromise...Surprised to see can do 155mph and without speed limiter may bury speedo.
30 mpg or more at sane speeds, and really stable at 100+mph.

Have you driven the 2.0t? It's pretty peppy.
I have driven one, and it's good. I just get frustrated when I realize all the choices the EU has for wagons. The European version of the TourX has all kinds of options and interior colors not available in the US. Currently I have a Mercedes E400. In europe the diesel is available, but not here. BMW has the 528D. Jaguar has a diesel Sportbrake. There are also all kinds of other good looking wagons in makes not sold here.

I just traded my BMW 530 touring (2006 year) for a TourX, and power feels similar - 255 for both but more peak torque from the turbo 2.0 than the inline 6 3.0 liter. It's also my first automatic (ever) so it surprises me when I stomp it and it downshifts and kicks my head back. With the stick, I knew what was about to happen.

I agree, it's bit frustrating that us Americans are so in love with boring CUVs, resulting in limited choices for us wagon fans. On the more affordable (non-luxury) end of the spectrum, I would love for the Mazda6 wagon to come here.

NA market is SOOOO limited filled with rubbish it is almost stupid. I would have got a car long before 2018 if the Scirocco was sold in NA.

So you want the Sports Tourer (the "regular" height and uncladded version sold in Europe) in GS trim. I could get on board with that.
Probably the closest thing in existence is the Opel Insignia Sports Tourer GSi, which comes standard with either our 2.0L gas engine or a turbo diesel. Alternatively, there is the Holden Commodore Tourer which comes standard with the 3.6L V6, although it's TourX/Country Tourer trim (with cladding)

I actually like that the cladding, helps protect paint.
With wider then stock tires I need the protection.
Both the cladding and wheels are growing on me.
