2014 Honda Civic Tourer Review, Release and Price – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Honda Civic Tourer Redesign. 2014 Honda Civic Tourer Concept is one brand new car from Honda that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Honda Civic Tourer Quotes.
The Honda Civic Tourer has a broad range of talents that make it a fine addition to the range. The diesel engine offers a superb mix of performance and economy, and the adaptive dampers give a very smooth ride. The huge amount of space and flexible storage onboard mean it sets the class standard for practicality too, but it also costs a fair bit more than its rivals.
The steering has been tinkered with so there is less slack around the dead ahead, and the added consistency means it feels stable at high speed. Wind noise is an issue though, particularly around the wing mirrors. Four trims are available and all come with kit like DAB radio and alloys wheels as standard, but the top ‘SR’ and ‘EX’ also get a new adaptive damper system (ADS) fitted to the rear axle.
A small button on the dash cycles between three different driving modes, but whichever you choose, the system definitely gives a smoother ride and tighter body control than the standard springs. It grips well too, although the Tourer, like the standard Civic, is focused on comfort rather than driver engagement.
Design, Honda Civic Tourer has a familiar front fascia with angular headlights and LED daytime running lights. We can also see bulging fenders, a “floating roof” and wraparound taillights.
Honda is a latecomer to the current crop of small estates, but the new Civic Tourer arrives armed and ready for a fight. Despite being the most compact car in its class, the estate version of the Civic offers class-leading boot space, sub-100g/km C02 emissions and sharper styling than the five-door.
Designed and developed in the UK by Honda’s European team the Tourer has grown 235mm longer than the standard hatch, but has the same wheelbase. A longer roof means rear headroom is much improved too, while the awkward rear spoiler has also been removed so rear visibility is far better than in the hatch.
Honda Civic Tourer is available with two engine choices, a 1.8-liter petrol unit rated at 140 HP and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel mill that delivers 118 HP. Specifications were not released but the 1.6 i-DTEC will likely produce 120 HP (88 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque. The 1.8 i-VTEC, on the other hand, should develop 142 HP (104 kW) and 174 Nm (128 lb-ft) of torque.
There are just two engine options, the tried-and-tested 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol with either a manual or auto gearbox, and the efficient 1.6-litre i-DTEC model we are testing here which is set to make up the vast majority of sales. Stricter CO2 controls mean that the punchy and smooth 2.2-litre diesel has been dropped.
Even so, the smaller diesel motor produces an impressive set of figures. 118bhp and 300Nm of torque mean it easily outmuscles the 1.6 TDI in rivals like the Skoda Octavia and VW Golf estates, and 0-62mph takes just 10.1 seconds. The power band is a tad narrow, but the short-throw six-speed gearbox makes it easy to keep the Civic pulling along, and engine refinement is excellent.
