I can't believe my eyes!
Saw 2 GS within 3 minutes when I drove by the local dealer. (Neither of them has anything to do with said dealer though, as they were also driving by).

Other than at 2 different car dealerships where I was test driving to buy one, I’ve never seen another TourX in the wild.

Doing some really quick math and making some wild assumptions, apparently there ware only 27K Regal’s sold in the US, assuming half were TourXes and not Sportbacks (13.5k), and Siri reports 254M vehicles in use… the TourX represents 0.0053% of the US vehicular population not accounting for any that get totalled and taken out of circulation. The nearest larger town to me is 18 miles away, but there are 232k people living in that town. Assuming about half don’t own cars are are too young or old to drive I calculate there might be 6 TourXes in the area. Yet, I’ve seen more Maseratis, Ferraris, Jaguars, Aston Martins, and Lamborghini’s than TourXes. Most of these exotics are owned by Mr. Jimmy John himself as he has a huge garage at the Corporate Headquarters where he parks all his toys (and I used to work down the street from that office).

Up until recently, I had seen more Ferrari F40s in the wild than TourXs. Then again…it’s hard to miss an F40!

Regal TourX
I live in La Crosse WI (I know most of you never heard of it) with a population of 53k. If I consider the surrounding towns, the population is approx 85,000 for the metro area. I have seen six different TourX's in the city since I've owned mine (9 months). On the flip side, during a 4,000 miles round trip to Colorado I have seen only one other TourX in the wild. Maybe their distribution across the country is not equal?

There were quite a few used TourXs for sale in Minneapolis this past winter. They were definitely more common than the sportback.

Maybe some dealerships were better about actually SELLING these cars.

I think the sportback goes more unnoticed.

Looking nationwide on Autotrader just now for 2018-2020 Regals and there are 157 Sportback's, 124 TourX's, and 14 GS's.

Strongly supports the theory I've read that about 40% of the last gen Regals sold were TourX's.

I would have noticed if the local dealers had Sportback's because that's what I was looking for. It seemed that in Minneapolis for every one sportback listed there were 3 TourXs. I was getting annoyed because I didn't want the wagon. This was January to March 2021.

I don’t think that’s a theory; I read an article saying that.

I think people who live in MN/WI/MI pay more attention to anything with AWD. Whereas folks in Colorado only drive Subarus all with cargo boxes on the roof. My daughter is probably the only subaru in Atlanta with a Thule cargo box on it.

This would be the American Subaru made in Germany, a crossover between Colorado and the upper Midwest. I stole the picture from a Facebook group. :whacko:

My oh my, that is hideous looking. I can honestly say I have no desire to do that to my beautiful red TourX

I happened to be in Madison WI yesterday, no TourX sighting but I did see some 2017 or older Regals, but no 2018+ regal Sportbacks.

At the Pittsburgh vintage grand prix today I saw a white tourX driving around Oakland looking for parking. I gave a wave from the other white tour X.

My wife (the 2018 Regal Sportback driver) and I were walking in her older brother's neighborhood in Rocky River, OH, and were shocked to see not one, but two TourX in the span of ten minutes! And the day before, we were parked near our nephew's house in Perrysburg and I was surprised that I picked the one house of the Buick Sportback owner!

Three 2018-2019 Buick Regals in less than 24 hours, that's amazing!

Whoa! That’s not common. There seem to be clusters of TourXes. Maybe because people buy them after seeing them locally.
