Honda has disclosed details about the 2014 Civic Tourer that was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new 2014 Honda Civic Tourer was designed and developed in Europe. It is targeted at delivering outstanding versatility and functionality with an interior space of 624 litres (which makes it a leader in its class).
The Civic Tourer’s design is not amazing but what Honda was able to do was to build a beautiful car that’s ideal for people with children or those who want a car that has a big interior space. Civic Tourer has a unique style characterized by a prominent line that runs continuously from the front A-pillar to the D-pillar making the impression of a floating roof line. Honda has extended the glass of the rear quarter to cover up the body work of the D-pillar.
Meanwhile, the rear door sash was increased by 17 mm compared to the Civic 5-door. The Civic Tourer has a trunk volume of 624 litres (with the rear seats up, up to window). Honda claims that the Civic Tourer leads in its class in the C and D segments when it comes to trunk space. Honda also said that the cargo area can fit in 3 large-sized Samsonite cases with the tonneau cover pulled over to hide the cases.
The 2014 Civic Tourer provides 1668 litres trunk volume when the rear seats are down, up to roof lining. Tall objects can be carried in the booth as there’s an added under-floor storage in the boot. Loading is easier as the loading lip has been lowered by 137 mm compared to the Civic 5-door.
The Civic Tourer features distinctive Magic Seats, offering more practicality, space and versatility. In just one move, the rear seats assembly can be folded down. The interior trunk floor of the Civic Tourer is higher compared to the 5-door to form a totally flat area when the seats are folded down. Honda offers the Civic Tourer with either the Earth Dreams Technology series’ 1.6 i-DTEC engine or the 1.8 i-VTEC engine in manual or automatic transmission.
