Honda has taken the wraps off the Civic Tourer Concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The Civic Tourer Concept offers a hint as to the exterior design of the Civic Tourer production model which will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Building on the shape of the ninth generation Civic hatchback launched in late 2011, Honda says the Civic Tourer has a “sophisticated, aerodynamic body” with a “clean, dynamic look.”

Honda was keen to give the new Tourer a wide and low stance to emphasise its sportiness.

The company goes on to say the new Tourer will offer class-leading cargo space, although no figures have been officially released.

The production version of the Civic Tourer is expected to arrive in dealerships in early 2014.

It will be built alongside the hatchback model in Honda’s production facility in Swindon, Wiltshire.
