Following up on a sextet of spy photos from June, we now have another batch of images of the facelifted Euro-spec Honda Civic undergoing testing in the United Kingdom. There's a bit more sheetmetal to this particular prototype, though, as our spy photographers have caught the upcoming Tourer model (pronounced "wagon" among us Yanks).

Like the hatchback we showed you last month, the new Tourer benefits from the same set of styling tweaks inspired by the Civic Type R Concept from March's Geneva Motor Show. That means it boasts a revised front fascia, albeit with a more heavily camouflaged version of the grille shown in last month's photos. It's a similar story below, where the intakes on this long-roof model wear more disguise, yet look to be virtually identical to what we've already seen.

While the headlights still look to be a straight lift from last month's car, the more upright nature of the Tourer's tailgate demands a more subdued character. Gone are the thin, curvy LED taillights, and in their place sit significantly more substantial units (with conventional bulbs), although they boast none of the design chutzpah shown on our last round of spy photos. Our spies claim LED taillights will be available, noting that they simply aren't fitted to this particular prototype, a distinction that suggests this is a lower-end model.

Look for the new European Civic family to make their grand entrance in early October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

      I think the USA is ready to embrace the Civic Tourer. The success of the Fit demonstrates that. Honda would do well to have a $20-27k waganoid in it's lineup to compete against the Focus, Mazda3 and upcoming Scion Auris.

      I think Honda would be better just to give the US and Europe the same Civic. Follow Ford's one Ford mantra.

        You mean like the Focus Estate that they don't sell here?

          i would love the Focus estate but I mean just in general the Euro Civis and NA Civic are completely different.

      this car is already in production and on sale; are you sure this is a facelift to a model which just came on the market?

      Honda, you just launched that thing (2014!!!) If you are trying to give Europeans a product we appreciate please remember we like consistency and don't appreciate having models changing every week. For hints look at Volkswagen.

      Looks like Honduh put lipstick on a cockroach.

        The Tourer yes, the Tourer with facelift isn't. But the most part of those on the used market are service and press cars... As you would expect from something lauched in February through Europe.
