The biggest asset of the 2014 Honda Civic Tourer is its class-leading 624-liter (22 cubic feet) cargo capacity which makes it more spacious than the previous first place holder, the Skoda Octavia Combi (610 liters). If you fold down the rear seats, the Civic estate boasts an impressive luggage capacity of 1,668 liters (58.9 cubic feet). It also comes with rear "Magic Seats" that can be easily folded in just one motion.
The design closely mirrors the five-door hatchback with the exception of the bigger and longer rear designed to increase boot space. Powering the 2014 Civic Tourer will be a 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine outputting 120 HP (88 kW) and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque. Customers will be able to pick a 1.8-liter i-VTEC motor developing 142 HP (104 kW) and 128 lb-ft (174 Nm).
The 2014 Honda Civic Tourer will be manufactured in United Kingdom and is programmed to go on sale early next year.
