Honda Civic Tourer review

£22,300 - £26,055
Published: 13 Jan 2015
Civic Estate offers sector-topping practicality. We can't fault your logic, Honda

Good stuff

Spacious, comfy, and it doesn’t look like a Golf

Bad stuff

It's not supposed to be a driver's car, but even then it's not that involving


What is it?

Honda has clearly recognised the demands of the utilitarian type; they like utility. And space. Lots and lots of space. So although there is some talk of this new Civic Tourer being designed and developed in Europe – alluding to a more dynamic drive, which we’ll come to shortly – there’s no mistaking the raison d’etre for Honda’s new estate-ified hatch.

It sits on exactly the same platform as the Civic hatch, only with a longer rear overhang to create that huge boot. In fact, at 624 litres with the seats up, it trumps models from a couple of classes above for space; cars such as the BMW 5-Series Touring and Audi A6 Avant (and nearly matches them with the seats down). It’s big.

What's the verdict?

The Civic Tourer’s all about one thing: space. Want more than one thing? Consider a Golf Estate.
