Honda will be adding a Honda Civic station wagon variant to its lineup since its first introduction more than a decade ago with the Civic Aerodeck station wagon.
The Honda Civic Wagon will be designed to be roomy, versatile and fuel efficient for a small modern family. We expect the new Honda Civic Wagon to be powered by the same engines such as the current 100-hp 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine with its hybrid variant that are found in the Jazz Hybrid and Insight. And there maybe a 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine for the European market as well.
It is expected the new 2012 Honda Civic Wagon will arrive in Europe somewhere in late 2012. Whether the U.S. will get the 2012 Civic Wagon is still up in the air, but naturally, U.S. customers welcome such an addition. [5/5/2011]
Today at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Honda’s European president, Manabu Nishimae, announced a new Civic wagon-style model that will be added, along with the Type R version, to the Civic lineup in 2015. Based on the design sketch, it appears to be the longer with a flatter roofline and more upright D-pillar. Honda says this sketch is a glimpse at a Civic wagon concept that we will be seeing next year.
Here is an excerpt from the press release at the 2012 Paris Motor Show:
“A new derivative of Honda’s European Civic will be introduced in the form of a Civic ‘wagon’ model. A concept model will be shown next year.”
Even though 2015 is about two years from now, the company states that the 2015 Civic Wagon will be powered by the new 1.6 i-DTEC engine, which will be available on all Honda Civic models as well. Details are still scant, so stay tuned for more as this post will be updated regularly on coming news of the Civic wagon.
