note it says “high speeds”...wonder what Buick means by such...80+? 100+?If TourX really has active rear steering, then it is not doing much. One of the big benefits of such systems is reduced turning circle, yet TourX still needs 40 feet to do a turn, which is rather unimpressive.
Agreed - the turning circle makes me realize how much I took it for granted in other cars I’ve owned. I am lucky enough to have an indoor parking spot at work, albeit the garage is tight. It takes 3 swings to back it in (thanks to reverse sensors and camera) no matter how I approach it. Front sensors would be a huge help (or even a front camera as Opel has)...makes me wonder if the front ACC radar system could be further developed for low speed (<5 mph) use - even if it could provide a one dimensional reading across the front.At high speeds? That's not the problem I need solved. I'd love anything in the Regal to help tight parking situations. The lack of front sensors in a car with a 41' turning circle is pretty painful. The rear ones work pretty well, so I'm backing in a lot more often than I did with more maneuverable cars.
