Expect to see the unveiling of Honda’s Civic Tourer “Active Life Concept” at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Among the highlights of this Tourer are its top-of-the-class cargo room and its flexibility in the C-segment.
What this concept proves is that style and space can go together. Apparently, Honda really wants to fill its customers’ needs related to having an active lifestyle with its sleek exterior and range of interior accessories as well as a personalized paint color.
The Civic Tourer Active Life Concept makes full use of its fuel tank’s center layout, giving it a low loading height and a trunk space that measures 1,668 liters. Furthermore, it offers a set of highly interesting features such as a smart loading rack that can transport 2 bicycles and a retractable arm that may be pulled out from the track, allowing for easier repairs and maintenance.
Cycling fans will love that it comes with a built in integrated air pump, an extended shade area, a big light located on the tailgate, and a retractable bench. The exterior style of this concept is dynamic, featuring a special blue paint finish with a silver roofline and a lower gun metallic gradation.
Making it appear sportier are 18-inch alloy wheels and a rear bumper that’s custom-designed. Its interior is highly customized too. The steering wheel and the gear shift are accented by blue stitching and a black roof lining, which also appeared on the Civic Sport and Civic Type R.
Suede and leather are both used for the front seats. Just because it is spacious doesn’t mean that its fuel efficiency is compromised. It is equipped with new i-DTEC engines taken from the brand’s Earth Dreams Technology series.
In fact, a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title was set by the Honda Civic Tourer 1.6 i-DTEC for fuel efficiency. When driven across 24 EU countries last June for the 25-day ‘real-world’ challenge, the car recorded an average of 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) in this 13,498km (8,387 mile) drive.
