It’s the Honda Civic Tourer, a bigger and more commodious version of the standard car: exactly what it says on the tin, then.

In the way of trickery, the Tourer boasts a “Magic Seat” system. Which is really a fancy way of saying that the rear seats fold in a different way, taking storage space all the way up to 1668 litres.

Engines offerings are limited to one diesel and one petrol, from Honda’s “Earth Dreams Technology” series. This wagon clearly inspired lyrical waxing from the marketing suits.

It panders to the European market’s love for estate cars. The Tourer was developed  by their European Research and Development team. It’ll be manufactured in the UK.
