The Honda Civic Tourer concept gives us our clearest indication yet of the final design of the new Honda Civic wagon, which is destined to debut in production form at September’s Frankfurt motor show.

The Civic Tourer concept inherits its front-end design from the ninth-generation Honda Civic hatch, with two new sets of LED daytime running lights adding a sporting character to the wagon.

The hatch’s C-pillar-mounted rear door handles are retained, while wraparound rear windows create a distinctive floating roof design. Strong bumpers and wheel arches enhance the Tourer’s muscular stance.

A red-tinted LED tail-light assembly spans the tailgate and embraces the Honda badge, while mid-mounted chrome-tipped dual exhaust outlets emphasise the performance theme, but are likely to make way for conventional pipes in the production model.

The Honda Civic Tourer will be manufactured alongside the Civic hatch in Swindon, UK, with European deliveries commencing early next year.

Honda Australia has no plans to add the Tourer to the local line-up, however, believing there is not sufficient demand to justify the introduction of a wagon variant alongside the hatch and Thailand-sourced sedan.
