The Honda Civic, a bulletproof subcompact car beloved by many across the world for its affordability, reliability and aftermarket performance. It has come in many different body styles throughout the years: hatchback, coupe and sedan. But one style hasn't been revisited since 1996 with the Honda Shuttle. I'm talking about the wagon body style. Honda is returning (in Europe only) with a wagon called the Civic Tourer. Set to debut at this years' Frankfurt Motor Show, the completely new Civic Wagon is the result of the Honda R&D team in Europe.

Powering the Civic Tourer will be either the 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine from the Earth Dreams Technology series or a 1.8 i-VTEC engine. The i-DTEC diesel engine was first used in the Civic 5-door and the new CR-V. Honda's Earth Dreams Technology brings together fuel economy and performance. The aluminum block and head is the lightest diesel engine in its class.

The transmission will come in automatic or the much more fun to drive manual gearbox. Engineers have designed the car with a sporty and striking appearance without compromising the Civic's practicality. A new Adaptive Damper System elevates stability and comfort. It features three settings (comfort, normal and dynamic) to suit different loads and driving conditions. With the fuel tank placed under the seats, the Civic Tourer provides exceptional space. The cargo space is fully capable of fitting two full-size mountain bikes. Additionally more space can be found in additional floor storage located in the boot.

The all new wagon will be produced at Honda's UK manufacturing facility in early 2014. It's unfortunate that we won't be seeing it here in the states but maybe in the future. We think the Civic Tourer looks simply amazing. What are your thoughts?

The G-Class has changed a lot since the 460-series debuted in 1979. Today, the G-wagon is now as much an S-Class as it is an off-roader

We don't see many 3rd-gen Preludes at meets, shows, and track events, and when we do, they're nowhere near as aggressive as Satit Suwantong's

Big engine, little car; it's a formula that's worked wonders over multiple generations dating back to the earliest hot rod days.
