New Honda Civic Tourer available to order

In Showrooms from February 2014

The new Honda Civic Tourer will be available to order from December 2013. Prices start from £20,265 for the entry level 1.8 i-VTEC S model.

The Civic Tourer is offered with a choice of two engines; the 1.8 i-VTEC petrol and the new Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 i-DTEC diesel and four generously equipped trim levels. The Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine offers low running costs returning 74.3mpg and 99 g/km of CO2 emissions.

Standard specification on the entry level S grade includes features such as Bluetooth Hands Free Telephone (HFT), DAB Radio, USB connectivity and 16 inch allow wheels. If you opt for the SE Plus, the next level up then rear parking sensors and 17 inch alloys are added and SR customers benefit from the new world first rear Adaptive Damper System (ADS), front heated seats, HDD Navi and privacy glass. Those who opt for the top EX grade will receive headlight washer, smart entry and start capability, sunglasses holder, interior blue ambient lighting and Bi-HID headlights with auto levelling.

The new Tourer is extremely spacious and boasts class leading boot space of approximately 624 litres. There is also Honda’s unique Magic Seat System to consider, the rear seats can be pulled down to create a completely flat load area with 1668 litres of capacity up to the roof lining. The significant luggage space is cleverly supported by the Tourer’s newly developed rear Adaptive Damper System (ADS), a world first. The clever system automatically adjusts the rear suspension damping force designed to enhance stability and comfort under the varying load and driving conditions.

Another first is the option to add Honda’s new safety technologies,  this new suite of sensor based active safety systems uses a combination of cameras, short range lidar (laser radar) and radar, to deliver a high standard of safety in all conditions, giving drivers and passengers complete peace of mind. The new Driver Assistance Safety Pack is available as a factory fit option from SE models upwards for £780 and consists of  City-Brake Active System, specifically designed to help avoid or mitigate low speed accidents, Forward Collision Warning, which detects the risk of collision by recognising the vehicle directly in front, High Beam Support System, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition System, Blind Spot Information and Cross Traffic Monitor.

This new Civic Tourer is impressive due to the styling, advanced technology and the fantastic fuel economy and performance.
