Honda Civic Tourer Review

July 10, 2015

The working week is coming to an end – and rolling onto the Car Loan Warehouse’s radar this Friday is the Honda Civic Tourer. This compact estate comes with class-leading boot space and plenty of practicality – and with low CO2 emissions, it’s cheap to run, too.  So if you’re on the hunt for that Friday feeling, check out our Honda Civic Tourer review and find out how you could secure finance for your car. Let’s dive in!

Design

The Honda Civic Tourer faces rivalry from the likes of the Skoda Octavia – but while the

Czech manufacturers might produce innovative designs, the Tourer takes the edge when it comes to practicality. The estate is longer than the Honda Civic hatchback, which means increased head and legroom for the driver and passengers. If you’re travelling with children and wondering where you’ll store your essentials, there are decent sized door bins, a large glovebox and cup-holders throughout the cabin. In terms of boot space, the flexible rear seating system means the generous 624 litres extends to a huge 1,668 litres when they’re folded flat – making this an all-round family-friendly car.

Performance & Handling

When it comes to performance, there are two engine choices for the Honda Civic Tourer. The flexible 118bhp 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel is the most economical of the two – returning 74.3mpg and emitting just 99g/km of CO2 for total road tax exemption. The 142bhp 1.8 litre i-VTEC petrol is slightly quicker to accelerate, getting from 0-62mph in 9.5 seconds. The Honda Civic Tourer’s light steering is precise and there’s minimal body roll when navigating around tight corners – making it suitable for both urban and motorway driving.

Features

If you’re concerned with how much tech the Honda Civic Tourer includes, there are four trim levels to choose from – and the basic S spec comes with climate control, 16 inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth connection. A step up to the SE Plus will be more than enough for most drivers – adding a rear parking camera, 17 inch alloys, parking sensors, a 7 inch touchscreen system and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. The SR model brings with it ambient lighting, a leather interior and heated front seats. With so much kit available, upgrading to the EX Plus will be more a matter of preference than necessity. The range-topping trim adds fully adjustable seats for back support, LED headlights and extra interior lighting.
