The production version of the Honda Civic Tourer Concept which was showcased at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is moving closer to its market launch.

According to Whatcar.com, the Civic Tourer would go on sale in Europe in early 2014. The estate version of the Civic would compete with the Toyota Auris Touring Sports.

The front fascia of the car remains the same as the Civic but the roofline is slightly taller and significantly longer compared to the hatchback version. The car has a striking profile with the swooping roofline which ends up in a glass paneled C-Pillar. The concept had its rear door handles hidden in the B-Pillars and we expect this feature to filter down to the production model as well.

The interior is expected to be borrowed from the Civic. The room and boot space on offer would be class leading, given Honda’s proven prowess in packaging.

The estate is likely to inherit the powertrain option from the hatchback and sedan versions of the Civic.

The Station Wagon body style is quite popular in Europe for its practicality and the Tourer is expected to be a meaningful addition to the Civic’s lineup in the old continent.

Back in India, Honda was forced to withdraw the Civic due its lack of diesel powertrain. We don’t see the D Segment contender re-entering India in the immediate future.
