Honda Civic Wagon concept headed for Geneva

February 7, 2013

Honda has shown a preview sketch of a cool new Honda Civic Wagon concept it plans to unveil at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Although there isn’t current a Civic wagon in the showroom range, things may change down the track.

The concept will eventually spawn a production version, however, it may only go on sale in international markets and not in Australia. If it looks anything like this preview sketch, we hope it eventually makes its way Down Under.

Honda says the concept “strongly hints at the design direction of the final production version.This new derivative will strengthen the Civic range and will be built at Honda’s manufacturing facility in Swindon [UK]”.

Specific details on the concept are yet to be revealed. From what you can see, the wagon sports a similar rear end design to the current and rather funky Civic Hatch.

It also appears as though it will showcase mildly bolstered wheel arches, a rear spoiler, and aggressive rear diffuser with a twin centrally-mounted exhaust system.

Power is expected to come from the same 104kW 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol, as well as Honda’s new 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel which is available in European models.

Stay tuned for more details on this and plenty of other unveilings at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It all starts on March 5.
