Honda Civic Tourer (2014–2017)

Model History

March 2013

Honda unveils Civic Tourer Concept

The Honda Civic Tourer Concept shares many of the same features as the ninth generation Civic hatchback model which was launched in late 2011. It has a sophisticated, aerodynamic body that creates a clean, dynamic look, and the same 'Magic' rear seats that give it a very versatile rear load area as well as a hugely commodious one.

With a distinctive profile amongst its competitors, the Civic Tourer Concept has a low and wide stance giving it a sporty appearance which is complemented by a sleek cabin style also found on the Civic hatchback. The Civic Tourer Concept continues the same design direction as previous Honda Tourer derivatives such as the Accord Tourer and Civic Aero deck which sought to offer smooth design combined with practical and class leading cargo space.

The production version of the Civic Tourer will be in dealerships in early 2014 and will be built alongside the hatchback model in Honda’s production facility in Swindon, Wiltshire.

August 2013

Production version of Honda Civic Tourer revealed

The Honda Civic Tourer features Honda’s innovative Magic Seat system and offers a class leading boot space of 624 litres with the rear seats in place, up to the window line. This expands to 1,668 litres with the rear seats down and up to the roof.

4,590mm long x 1,715mm wide (+ mirrors) x 1,480mm high on 2,464mm wheelbase.

Whel and tyre sizes: 15-inch with 195/65 R15 tyres; 16-inch with 205/55 R16 tyres; 17-inch with 225/45 R17 tyres or 18-inch with 225/40 R18 tyres offering increasing levels of discomfort.

Load length (seats up): 1,000mm; Load Length (seats down): 1,870mm; Load width (between arches): 1,050mm; Load width (behind arches): 1,430mm; Load height (under shelf): 500mm; Load height (at hatchback): 760mm

Breakover Angle: better than 12.5 degrees helps prevent grounding on ramps. Wheelbase: 2595mm; ground clearance: 140mm; breakover angle: 12.32 degrees

The Civic Tourer is available with the new low NOx 1.6 i-DTEC engine and the 1.8 i-VTEC engine with manual or automatic transmission. The introduction of a brand new Adaptive Damper System (ADS) will help to enhance stability and comfort under varying load and driving conditions.

Developed and designed in Europe, allowing Honda’s European R&D team to lead the creative and technical design process, the new Civic Tourer will be launched in Europe in early 2014. It will be built at Honda’s UK manufacturing facility in Swindon alongside the hatchback variant and the CR-V and Jazz.

The Civic Tourer benefits from the same unique centre fuel tank layout used in the Civic hatchback. The fuel tank is located under the front seats allowing the Civic Tourer to offer unparalleled interior space and Honda’s clever Magic Seats. The cargo area will accommodate two full-size mountain bikes or three large-sized Samsonite cases with the tonneau cover pulled over.

There is also a very handy hidden compartment perfect for storing the tonneau cover when it is not needed. Furthermore, there is additional under floor storage in the boot which makes carrying tall objects in the boot easy, plus the height of the loading lip has been reduced by 137mm* compared to the Civic hatchback to facilitate effortless loading.

Honda’s Magic Seats deliver further practicality and space within the Civic Tourer, enabling a range of seating configurations for maximum versatility.The rear seats fold down in one easy movement, and the interior trunk floor of the Civic Tourer has been raised compared to the hatchback to create a completely flat area when the seats are folded down.

The rear seat cushions can also be flipped up to reveal ample floor space for carrying tall objects. A 60:40 split in the seat base offers even more options for carrying both people and cargo and provides an alternative load area if access via the tailgate is limited.

The 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine was first applied to the Civic hatchback and subsequently to the new CR-V. The engine is the first of Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series to be introduced in Europe. The philosophy behind Earth Dreams Technology is to deliver an impressive balance between fuel economy and driving performance and this is certainly the case in the Civic Tourer.
