Honda Civic Tourer

Honda has unveiled the new Civic Tourer at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Essentially an estate version of the Civic, the new tourer will boast a whopping 1668 litres of storage and be introduced to UK showrooms in early 2014.

One of the big selling points of the Civic is its ‘Magic Seats’ system which, thanks to a repositioned fuel tank, lets you fold the seat bases up so you can carry tall objects like pot plants on the rear seat floor. You can also fold the seats down completely flat with the use of one lever and because the seat bases drop rather than fold up, the load length is maximised – handy for flat pack furniture. When everything is folded flat the load area is a capable 1668 litres, while it’s 624 litres with the seats in place – but that does include the easy-to-access underfloor area.
