Honda Civic Tourer Active Life Concept is All About Cycling at the Frankfurt Motor Show

We know, Honda already unveiled the facelift for the Civic Tourer last year during the Paris International Motor Show, but we can't argue with their willingness to satisfy the need for an active lifestyle showed by customers.

Before we get into specifics with the Civic Tourer Active Life Concept, we'd like to tell you that from its launch and up until this point, the longer and more practical version of the new Civic set a new world record for low fuel consumption. But we'll get back on that.

Now, as far as the Active Life prototype is concerned, you need to know Honda created it for those who made cycling a part of their lives.

Japanese engineers took full advantage of the wagon's 1668-liter trunk space and fitted the concept with a loading frame capable of transporting two bicycles, accompanied by a retractable arm which can be extended from the rack, making any maintenance or repair jobs easier.

That's not all, though, as Honda wanted to turn their Civic Tourer into a mobile bike workshop. That's why the concept is fitted with an integrated air pump, a toolbox, a bottle handler and a front wheel holder.

On the visual side, Honda gifted the Civic Tourer Active Life with a custom blue paint finish and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the blue thematic is carried over with stitching on the steering wheel and gear shifter, seasoned with the same black roof lining as seen in the Civic Sport and Civic Type R.

In case you have doubts about what should go under the hood, here's an idea. We think the best candidate to fill the engine compartment is the 1.6-liter i-DTEC mill that also powered the record-breaking Civic Tourer in its trip around Europe, since 120 horsepower is more than enough for leisure activities.
