2014 Honda Civic Tourer bows in Frankfurt

Does not seem to have much more room then my Fit.



Goes on sale early next year

Honda has officially unveiled the Civic Tourer at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Designed to appeal to growing families, the Civic Tourer has a familiar design with an angular front fascia, bulging fenders and a 'floating' roof.
The interior carries over from the standard model but the boot holds 624 liters (22 cubic feet) of luggage and that can be expanded to 1668 liters (58.9 cubic feet) when the rear seats are folded down. Speaking of which, the Civic Tourer is equipped with rear "Magic Seats" that fold down in one easy motion.
Under the hood, two engines are available. The 1.6-liter i-DTEC produces 120 HP (88 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, while the 1.8-liter i-VTEC churns out 142 HP (104 kW) and 174 Nm (128 lb-ft) of torque.
Last but not least, the Civic Tourer is the first model to be equipped with Honda's rear Adaptive Damper System. It has three setting - comfort, normal and dynamic - and promises to "enhance stability and comfort under varying load and driving conditions."
The Civic Tourer will be built in the United Kingdom and European sales are scheduled to begin early next year.

Early 2014 market release

Honda Civic Tourer chief engineer Adrian Killham has offered a brief description of the company's latest product developed exclusively in Europe.
The biggest asset of the 2014 Honda Civic Tourer is its class-leading 624-liter (22 cubic feet) cargo capacity which makes it more spacious than the previous first place holder, the Skoda Octavia Combi (610 liters). If you fold down the rear seats, the Civic estate boasts an impressive luggage capacity of 1,668 liters (58.9 cubic feet). It also comes with rear "Magic Seats" that can be easily folded in just one motion.
The design closely mirrors the five-door hatchback with the exception of the bigger and longer rear designed to increase boot space. Powering the 2014 Civic Tourer will be a 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine outputting 120 HP (88 kW) and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque. Customers will be able to pick a 1.8-liter i-VTEC motor developing 142 HP (104 kW) and 128 lb-ft (174 Nm).
The 2014 Honda Civic Tourer will be manufactured in United Kingdom and is programmed to go on sale early next year.

That cargo number may look low, but they measure differently in Europe. It only counts space below the beltline. That means it's more like 30+ cu ft.

For example, the UK Jazz is rated at 13.39 cu ft cargo space (379L / 28.3), while the same car here is rated 20.6.

I was wondering about that it seemed that 58.9 was not much more then my Fit. I wonder if Acura eliminates the TSX if the would replace this wagon as the ILX in the USA.

For the size seems close to the Fit in cargo must be they measure different in the UK, like mpg.

624-liter cargo capacity

Honda has released UK pricing details and a full photo gallery for the 2014 Civic Tourer.
The base model kicks off at 20,625 GBP and will come with a 1.8-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine rated at 142 HP (104 kW) and 174 Nm (128 lb-ft) of torque. The engine can work with both manual and automatic transmissions and enables the more practical Civic to return 45.56 mpg UK (37.9 mpg US or 6.2 liters / 100 km) in the combined cycle with corresponding CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.
The diesel-powered version begins at 21,375 GBP and makes use of a new 1.6-liter DTEC engine producing 120 HP (88 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft). In this configuration the Civic Tourer will do 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 10.1 seconds while achieving 74.3 mpg UK (61.8 mpg US or 3.8 liters / 100 km) and 99 g/km of CO2. With a full tank of gas, the Civic Tourer diesel will provide a range of approximately 817 miles (1,315 km).
Honda says the Civic Tourer has the largest trunk in its category, managing to provide a massive 624-liter (22 cubic feet) capacity which makes it 14 liters more spacious than the one inside the Skoda Octavia Combi. If this isn’t enough, fold down the rear seats and you get 1,668 liters (58.9 cubic feet). Speaking of the rear seats, these are fitted with Honda’s Magic Seat system which enables an easy one-motion folding maneuver.

Honda Civic Tourer BTCC unleashed



Belongs to Honda Yuasa Racing team

Honda Yuasa Racing has revealed its 2014 BTCC contender in the form of a Civic Tourer.
What we have here is the first estate car to be used in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) since Tom Walkinshaw Racing used a couple of Volvo 850s in the 1994 season. Belonging to Honda Yuasa Racing, it will be the only estate car on the 2014 grid.
Under the hood of the BTCC-spec Civic Tourer will be a newly developed 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine built by Neil Brown. The motor is estimated to produce more than 300 HP (221 kW), while a more docile version is expected in the highly anticipated Civic Type R due in 2015 already confirmed with at least 280 HP (206 kW).
It won't be the only Civic on next year's BTCC grid as Eurotech Racing plans on using the hatchback variant that was developed for the 2012 season and managed to grab the last two drives' titles for Gordon Shedden and Andrew Jordan.
Next year's BTCC season will start on March 30 at Brands Hatch when Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal will race this Honda Civic Tourer.
