Honda has unveiled its 2014 Civic Tourer, ahead of its 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show debut.
Developed and designed in Europe, the Civic Tourer has class-leading trunk space over 22 cubic feet with the rear seats up. Engine choices for the new Civic Tourer include a 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine from the automaker’s Earth Dreams Technology series or a 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine. Either engine can be had with a manual or automatic transmission. The 1.6-liter powerplant has 118 horsepower and is a diesel engine, while the 1.8-liter has 140 horsepower.
Highlighting the new Civic Tourer is its brand new Adaptive Damper System (ADS) that is designed to help enhance stability and comfort under varying load and driving conditions. Three settings are available on the ADS: comfort, normal, and dynamic.
Unfortunately, it’s highly unlikely that the Civic Tourer will make it to America, considering that wagons have always been weak in terms of sales on U.S. soil. That… and the European Civic is based off an entirely different platform from our current Civic sedan and coupe.
