Most people don’t think of the Honda Civic as a good vehicle for moving to a new home; surely, it can’t move that many of your most beloved items, right?
This article from AutoExress shows how functional the Honda Civic Tourer really is and that it can, in fact, be a perfectly vehicle for helping you move.
If you can get past the fact that the author uses the word “boot” for trunk and “niggle” for…well, we’re not exactly sure, the article highlights some of the amazing features of the Honda Civic Tourer that you may not think about during a quick test drive.
- More storage VW Golf and Ford Focus and rear seats that independently flip up “revealing another huge storage area, which proved perfect for picture frames and suitcases.”
- More than 47 miles per gallon
- “The Civic’s big boot made light work of the task in hand, and my large bedside chest was squeezed in without the need to fold the back seats. There was even enough space left over to pack in a load of cushions, bedding and clothes.”
See? It’s actually a very spacious, functional vehicle.
“When people think of the Honda Civic, they usually think of it as an awesome compact, commuter car,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “It’s definitely that, but the Honda Civic Tourer is also extremely functional with way more space and storage than you think.”
Stop by Northwest Honda, Apple Valley Honda, or Sims Honda to take the new 2014 Honda Civic for a test drive!
Honda unveiled its standout Honda Civic Tourer wagon with a sleek sports car look that will no doubt make it stand out.
In Europe only. Darn it.
According to this article, “Honda says the Civic Tourer will stand out in Europe’s crowded compact wagon segment because of its “sleek and sophisticated exterior combined with class-leading interior space.”
Although this Honda Civic Tourer won’t be available at Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealerships, we thought it was a pretty cool looking wagon. Heck, there would probably be some anti-wagon husbands out there that wouldn’t driving this dynamic wagon.
Honda is hoping so because they are counting on 20 percent of their Civic sales in Europe to be wagons.
What do you think of the Honda Civic Tourer? Would you like to see something like this here in the United States?
Honda is leading the way by introducing the first rear-only Adaptive Damper System on the new CivicTourer.
According to this article, “While active damping systems have been deployed for a number of years, this marks first use of such a system for the rear only in a production model. Honda told Autocar that using a rear-only setup delivers 80% of the functionality of a fully adaptive chassis at half the cost.
“This system features three settings—comfort, normal and dynamic—all of which have been developed to enhance stability and comfort under the varying load and driving conditions that the Civic Tourer is likely to experience.
“The Tourer is due to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013, before being launched in early 2014.”
We are excited to see the 2014 Honda Civic Tourer unveiled this fall, but we are really anxious to see how the rear-only damping performs!
At first this article confused me. Yes, I figured out they meant ‘trunk’ where they used boot, but only because my mum is Canadian and I had to have that explained to me several times when visiting family.
But it still threw me off every time I read it, which was a lot because the Honda Civic Tourer has a huge boot…er…trunk!
This article has some great details about the new Honda Civic Tourer set to debut in Europe this September (no word about the U.S.), but mostly the pictures of it caught my attention. Drivers could do a lot of stuff with a Honda Civic with a trunk that big! Perfect for “dog owners and towing.”
A Honda Civic towing? Yes!
With as much as Americans love the Honda Civic, it would only make sense to have this Honda Civic Tourer available here, too…right?
