Honda has plans to show a concept of the Civic Tourer at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show and as you can see it primarily targets cyclists. The practical wagon can host up to 1,668 liters of various cargo but in this case it has received two bicycles installed on a special rack that comes with an extendable arm to ease access.
In addition, the one-off Civic Tourer has received a retractable bench and a very useful air pump while the custom tailgate comes with an integrated light which should prove to be handy when working on a bike during the evening or night.
The list of changes doesn’t end here as the vehicle also boasts a toolbox, bottle holder, front wheel holder and a water tank - all of which are built into the trunk side lining. Moreover, the Civic Tourer has gained a specially developed cargo box that has a tailor-made shape for storing a variety of cycling accessories like helmets and shoes.
Honda has fitted the Active Life concept with new 18-inch alloy wheels while the body features a unique blue paint combined with a gun metal finish for the lower portion of the car. As for the interior, aside from the previously mentioned features there’s also a black headliner, black stitching for the upholstery, as well as carbon tape with blue piping while the front seats are covered in a combination of leather and suede.
Motivation is provided by Honda’s ultra-frugal i-DTEC four-cylinder 1.6-liter turbodiesel with 120 bhp and 300 Nm which offers enough power for a 0-100 kmph run in a decent 10.1 seconds. More importantly, the compact wagon is capable of returning an amazing 26.3 kmpl which corroborated with the spacious interior it makes the Civic Tourer a very capable car for longer trips with the family or friends.
