The Top Gear car review:Honda Civic Tourer
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
It’s a well-built interior, this, but as with the hatch, suffers in comparison with the best rivals. Sit inside the MkVII Golf and you’d think the Civic was a bit too buttony. Cluttered, even. That said, it’s a bold design, with futuristic styling that continues the external flourishes, and everything falls to hand easily enough.
Then there are the nifty back seats, that fold flat into the floor, and have bases that flip up and lock into place creating a tall secondary boot. Honda’s ingenuity gives it a real leg up over the competition, which simply can’t match such smart thinking. Plenty of room back there, if you just want to insert people, too.
