2014 Honda Civic Tourer - first official pictures, promo video and details

Honda has released first pictures and details about the new Civic Tourer ahead of its official unveiling at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The production model was previewed by a concept earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show and is toned down a bit, featuring a similar front fascia with angular headlights, LED daytime running lights, bulging fenders, wraparound tail lights and a floating roof.

The interior carries over from the saloon, but thanks to a different body shape it has trunk volume of 624 litres (with the rear seats up, up to window) and up to 1668 litres with the rear seats down to roof lining.

The Civic Tourer will be powered by either 1.6 i-DTEC engine from the Earth Dreams Technology series or the 1.8 i-VTEC engine linked to manual or automatic transmission. No power specs were released, but the 1.6-litre unit is expected to produce 120 hp and the 1.8-litre unit 142 hp.

There is also a new Adaptive Damper System (ADS), that will help to enhance stability and comfort under varying load and driving conditions, featuring three settings – comfort, normal and dynamic.

The Civic Tourer will be built at Honda’s UK manufacturing facility in market launch is in early 2014.
