New Civic Tourer Concept
Today, at the Geneva Motor Show, Honda unveils the concept of the new Civic Tourer model. The striking concept highlights the exterior design direction of Honda’s Civic Tourer, which will be introduced in early 2014. The Civic Tourer has been designed in Europe for European customers. The low and wide stance gives a sporty feel whilst the rear styling will deliver class leading cargo space.

CO2 emissions of 119g/km* for 1.6 i-DTEC CR-V
Honda also confirm that its new Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 litre i-DTEC engine will be added to the CR-V range, following on from its introduction to the Civic at the beginning of 2013. Delivering CO2 emissions of only 119 g/km*, the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC will be one of the cleanest and most efficient SUVs in the market when it is introduced in Autumn 2013. The 1.6 i-DTEC engine will be available with two-wheel drive and a manual transmission on the CR-V.

Latest NSX Concept unveiled
In addition, Honda unveils a new NSX Concept for the first time in Europe, showcasing the evolution of the supercar's styling and design, including a first-ever look at one possible direction for the next-generation NSX interior design. The exterior design stays remarkably true to the original concept styling, maintaining its dynamic and alluring proportions whilst the interior package boasts outstanding visibility and a great driving position.

Nurburgring testing for new Civic Type R
Last year, Honda confirmed the introduction of an all-new Civic Type R for Europe. With the application of technologies from Honda’s World Touring Car Championship Civic, development is progressing well and today, Honda announce that testing at the Nurburgring for the new model will begin in 2013.
