Honda showed off its Civic Tourer concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and at that time, we were told that a production version would be coming to market in the very near future. Obviously, the sleek lines of the concept car will be dumbed down slightly for consumers, but that doesn't mean the Civic wagon will be a bland machine. The Euro-spec Civic's angular front end looks like it will blend nicely with the rakish rump that we saw on the concept.

Our sources suggest that not only will the Civic Tourer be a class-leader in terms of cargo capacity, but it will likely be a pretty engaging car from behind the wheel, as well. Honda is hoping that the Tourer will account for roughly 20 percent of all European Civic sales after it goes on sale.

Expect to see the production car debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, with the first customers taking delivery in early 2014. In the meantime, have a look at the camouflaged swoopy wagon from all angles in our gallery above.

      Good. Keep the ugly station wagons in Europe. They seem to like that kind of stuff. While we are at it. ban VW, Audi, BMW station wagons as well.

      Wow - alot of haters here: I have had two Acuras and they ran like sewing machines - forever. I have a Volvo XC70 now - pretty much because wagon choices seem to be that and Audi's or a Jetta. I would love to have a smaller wagen like this now that the kids are ******* my money away from college - Looks (well not the camo model - but the other pics from Geneva) great to me. This with a stick and Honda made - I would love to see this here in NA.

          When I say ran like sewing machines - yes that was good - quiet no squeeks or anything at 150k miles. Yes Acuras are just Hondas - or they were 10 years ago - kinda killed me that you buy an Acura and it has Honda labels all over the glass, engine components etc....and yes Acura has the TSX wagon - but if this is around $20-$22k new.....!

      Maybe they can sell some Crosstours by putting them next to this thing. Looks to be the ugliest car in their line-up, well done.

      Good to know the europeans get to have unattractive vehicles also. Looks like the the sales slogan should go from \"Because it\'s a Honda\" to \"It\'s just a Honda \"

      Another design where rearward driver visibility is deliberately "designed out" for the sake of styling. Unlike tail fins, this styling excess can cost lives. I am usually the last person to advocate more regulation by the Government, but I think it's long past time for the NHTSA to step in and develop standards for driver visibility. It's obvious that the automakers lack the maturity and sense of responsibility to show any common sense in this area.

        With properly adjusted mirrors it doesnt matter what the visibility is out the window between the C and D pillars. If you have to check that tiny view (even on a car with full visibility) then you are doing it wrong. With properly positioned mirrors you dont need to look at anything but your mirrors and maybe out the passenger window if you have not been paying attention. I never have to turn my head all the way around and look out those rear windows, cause i use my mirrors correctly.
