Honda have announced the new Civic Tourer estate will start at £20,265 for the 1.8 i-VTEC S. Cars will be available to order in December, deliveries will start February 2014.
There will only be two engine choices at launch, the 1.8 i-VTEC Petrol and the 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel unit. The latter starts at £21,375.
With 624 litres of boot space available as standard, Honda have also added their clever ‘Magic Seats’ which fold flat allowing up to 1668 litres.
The 1.6 litre diesel will achieve a 0-60 time of 10.1 seconds, it has 118 BHP and 300 Nm of torque. Combined MPG is rated at 74.3 with a range of 817 miles on a single tank of fuel, all whilst only spewing out 99g/km of CO2.
Petrol wise the 1.8 litre has 140 BHP with 174 Nm of torque, and it achieves 45.56 MPG on a combined cycle, but it emits 149 g/km of CO2.
