Honda has taken the wraps off the Civic Tourer Concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, providing strong hints to the exterior design of the Civic Tourer production model which will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Honda has also confirmed that track testing of the new Civic Type R will start at the Nurburgring in 2013.
The Civic Tourer Concept shares many of the same features as the ninth generation Civic hatchback model which was launched in late 2011 and will be in dealerships in early 2014, built alongside the hatchback model in Honda’s production facility in Swindon, Wiltshire.
Honda has now announced that testing at the Nurburgring will begin in Europe during 2013. The Type R model will be built in Swindon alongside the rest of the Civic range.
