Mitsubishi has been in a slump for the past decade. The company is trying to reposition itself as a crossover maker instead of the sports car company that it was. The Outlander has changed a lot since its inception as a Toyota Matrix lookalike. The current model has a decent-looking exterior, but the inside of the car is rather outdated. The third-row seat is very cramped, which is a major drawback.

Aside from that, the performance is also lackluster. The Outlander feels a lot heavier then it is. Road manners are clunky, to say the least, and this is a bit strange coming from a Mitsubishi model. If you’re in the market for a family-friendly crossover, it’s probably best to avoid this one.

The Lexus brand hasn’t seen a small scale wagon since the IS300 in the early 2000s. The UX 250h is a rather unique-looking car from the outside. But the problem is that this car doesn’t warrant its Lexus branding. First and foremost, interior dimensions are quite cramped, and while the front seats aren’t bad, the passenger seating is tight. Lethargic performance is something that tends to make the car dreary to drive.

Nevertheless, the overall style of the car still looks fairly decent from an exterior perspective. When it comes to choosing a compact luxury type of hatchback, there aren’t many on the market. The small liftover and limited lift over height make loading cargo a problem. The Lexus 250h certainly doesn’t stand out at this point and other options offer more in terms of value and quality.

Wagons are a dying species in today’s automotive market, but the Regal TourX is especially endangered. The wagon was designed to appeal to the same shoppers that would go onto a Volvo dealership lot. The result has been a wagon that was less than well-received. Styling is a mixed bag. The low ground clearance makes the car less versatile than a Subaru Outback, although interior dimensions are good.

The advanced safety aids are only available on top trim levels, which is a drawback in today’s automotive market. The low roofline does make it easier to load things onto the roof, but aside from that, the Buick Regal TourX is worth avoiding at this point. There are much better wagon options such as the Volkswagen Golf wagon.
