Combining sporty sleek looks with immense practicality, economy and space the new Honda Civic Tourer is a car that everyone can get excited about. The latest edition to the well-loved Civic range combines features from the award winning Civic hatchback with a new refined and urban look.
The Civic Tourer’s practical design is combined with a bold sporty statement due to the low and wide stance of the car. The aerodynamic body creates a clean and dynamic shape, complementing the sleek cabin style perfectly. Flared rear wheelarches, a floating roof with aluminium rails and a light bar between the tail-lamps are all major features of the Tourer’s exterior. And with an extra 235 mm on the rear, the new Civic Tourer gives the classic look of the Honda Civic a daring twist.
The main outstanding feature of this new Civic Tourer, like its predecessor, is the class-leading cargo space. The boot capacity offers a massive 624 litres of storage space with the capability to fold down rear seats creating an unbelievable 1,688 litres of space, making it one of the most practical cars on the market.
n addition, the new Tourer holds a word first in its Active Damper System (ADS), which adjusts the rear suspension dampening base on the load in the car to maintain stabling driving characteristics. Another inclusion is the new Driver Assistance Safety Packs, in addition to the critically acclaimed Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 Diesel engine, which will achieve real world economy of 74.3mpg with 99g/km CO2 emissions.
Coming at you, or rolling past – the Civic Tourer cuts quite a dash.
At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Tourer is built for sport. That’s because we’ve aligned the Civic’s sweeping style to the Tourer’s spacious frame. The result is an aerodynamic family car with a completely unique profile that doesn’t compromise style for space.
The windows around the Civic Tourer seem to make the outside feel that little bit closer. That’s because we’ve added a floating roof, which creates a band of window around the car for an almost uninterrupted view. The additional three quarters window offers you great rear visibility, helping give the car sleeker lines and better aerodynamics.
Aero wing, LED tail lights and LED stop lights all add to the distinctive rear design – and offer a safer rear profile on the road.
We were even thinking about performance when we designed the rear light and back section of the car. We did this by turning it into a ‘wing’ with small 'fins' running down it to improve drag and aerodynamics. For the Civic Tourer this meant better control, less turbulence and improved handling.
