Honda Civic Tourer was quite in the limelight after the end of conventional Civic era, due to its fallacy in recent times, all thanks to those outdated looks and under-performance, but as of now Honda had taken a new leaf out of the same and had planned to give in a sort of tweak that was meant to be necessary for such actions in the present generation.
Just recently the Civic and Jazz are discontinued from India and there is no confirmation from the makers about its replacement to be coming up, hence looking at these spy images we think that it may take a year or so to make the things back to normal.
These stills are taken somewhere in Europe where they say, the Civic Tourer Concept will hit dealerships in early 2014, and test mules really confirms the news to core, where it is also learnt the production spec will not be too different from the one that was previewed at Geneva last month. Meanwhile, same hatchback underpinning will be used to pin this newbie as well.
Right now we could not make any fragmentation due to the heavy camouflage covering on its outer crisp but can take that, it will be applied with both petrol and diesel fuel options. Henceforth, the well to dawn beginning of Amaze had proven worth of i-DTEC in India, so now the Japanese have a free hand to give in cool cues to many of the makes where it was lacking locally and other markets as well.
LED lights, reclining roof line with swift assimilation at D pillar, more of cargo space, extended wheelbase, sharp looking cues on all bits, and lot of others make it more impressive than ever. Very importantly, C pillar hinged rear door handles gives it a subtle appearance like that of coupe, which was also witnessed on the Urban SUV concept, seems to be a new sort of identification mark in Honda family siblings. Whereas to an extent, the Japanese carmaker had planned to roll out their most of the models in every market of the world, so expectations stands frugal for our fraternity, while there was needed a strong player in this context and no one seems better than Honda for the Indian Touring.
Till then one can watch the trailer and can get satisfied for now.
