Honda unveils new Civic Tourer Active Life concept

Honda will debut a new Civic Tourer Active Life concept at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show.

Underlining the Tourer's 'class leading' cargo space and versatility within the C-segment, the concept study shows that 'style and space can work together', says Honda.

A custom paint colour further enhances the 'sleek and sporty' exterior and an accessorised interior demonstrates the concept's 'suitability for an active lifestyle'. Utilising the unique centre fuel tank layout, the Civic Tourer Active Life concept makes full use of its 1668 litres boot space (Seats down, up to roof lining) and a low loading height.

Features include a smart loading rack capable of transporting two bicycles, along with a retractable arm which can be extended from the rack, making maintenance and repairs easier. Other maintenance accessories include a built in integrated air pump, a large light located on the tailgate, an extended shade area and a retractable bench making the car an ideal vehicle for cycling enthusiasts. Further accessories include a toolbox, bottle holder, water tank and a front wheel holder which are all integrated within the trunk side lining. Other storage solutions include a special aero shape roof box designed to accommodate essential cycling accessories such as shoes and helmets.

The dynamic exterior styling reflects the sporty and active lifestyle of the customer - featuring the custom blue paint finish with a lower gun metallic gradation and a silver roofline which helps 'accentuate the Civic Tourer's sleek styling and aerodynamic design' according to Honda, along with new 18-inch alloy wheels and a custom design rear bumper.

The interior also features a customised theme; blue stitching can be found on the steering wheel and on the gear stick, along with a sporty black roof lining, which is also found on the Civic Sport and Civic Type R. The front seats combine both suede and leather and feature a carbon tape with blue piping that runs along the centre and along the upper outer areas of the seat, continuing into the suede door lining.

The Frankfurt Motor Show runs from 17-27 September.
