This will the first time a rear Adaptive Damper System has been applied to a production model. The rear Adaptive Damper System features three settings -- comfort, normal and dynamic.

All of these settings were developed to improve stability and enhance comfort on different load and driving conditions that the new Civic Tourer may undergo. Adrian Killham, Large Project Leader at Honda, remarked that by introducing the technology in this format, they expect many customers to experience the benefits of this advanced rear Adaptive Damper System.

Honda developed and designed the new Civic Tourer in Europe, enabling the carmaker’s European R&D team to lead the creative and technical design process. The team banked on their experience of the demands as well as expectations of customers in Europe.

They even tested the new Civic Tourer in some of the harshest and most diverse driving conditions in Europe. The Japanese carmaker will build the new Civic Tourer at its Swindon manufacturing site in the UK. Honda will unveil the new Civic Tourer at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013.
