Honda has announced plans to reveal the 2014 Civic Tourer in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Japanese brand is creating a lot of buzz for what will essentially be the wagon version of the Civic. They say it will have a "significantly" larger boot compared to other models in this segment and that it will come with a rear adaptive damper system with three settings: comfort, normal and dynamic.

Scheduled to hit the market early next year, the Swindon-built Civic Tourer was designed and developed in Europe and was previewed in March at the Geneva Motor Show by an extremely appealing concept. Honda's senior engineer Adrian Killham previously mentioned the version fitted with the firm's 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel will have CO2 emissions of less than 100 g/km. The Tourer variant is going to be about 88 lbs (40 kg) heavier than the regular five-door hatchback.

Also at IAA next month, Honda will showcase the revised NSX concept, its 2013 WTCC Civic and the McLaren Honda MP4/4 Heritage F1 Car which won 15 of the 16 races in the 1988 Formula 1 season.
