Honda has revealed the Civic Tourer ‘Active Life Concept’ ahead of its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA). The Civic Tourer concept is aimed to showcase how style and space can come together to suit the needs of consumers with an active lifestyle.
The exterior of the concept features a bespoke blue paint scheme with lower gradation in gun metallic and silver coloured roof. The colour profile has been chosen to accentuate the concept’s aerodynamic profile and dynamic styling. The concept sits on new 18-inch alloy wheels and further enhances its appearance with a customised rear bumper.
The interior carries forward the blue theme featuring contrast blue stitching on the steering wheel, gear lever and the roof lining. The front seats feature the use of suede and leather with carbon tape and blue piping that runs along the centre and outer areas of the seat.
The distinguishing feature of the centre fuel tank layout concept is the optimum use of the 1668 litres of trunk space. The company claims that the Civic Active Life Concept is an ideal vehicle for cyclists with it featuring a bespoke loading rack capable of holding two bicycles. A retractable arm has been designed which can be extended from the rack aiding in easier maintenance and repair of the bicycles.
Honda has added maintenance accessories like an integrated air pump, a large light mounted on the tailgate, retractable bench and an extended shade area. The concept includes accessories like bottle holder, toolbox, front wheel holder and a water tank which are integrated into the trunk side lining. A specialised ‘aero shape’ roofbox has been added for enhanced capability of storage designed to contain cycling accessories.
Honda also stated that recently the Civic Tourer with the 1.6 i-DTEC engine set a new Guinness World Record for fuel efficiency averaging 2.82 litres/100 km (100.31 mpg) in a 8,387 mile (13,498 km) journey across 24 European nations.
