This is the first time a rear Adaptive Damper System has been applied to a
production model. The system was developed in order to enhance stability and
comfort under the varying load and driving conditions that the Civic Tourer is
likely to experience.
"By introducing the technology in this format, we expect many customers
will be able to experience the benefits of this advanced system," says
Adrian Killham, Large Project Leader.
The new Civic Tourer was developed and designed in Europe, allowing
Honda's European R&D team to lead the creative and technical design
process. The original concept has been achieved with the vehicle demonstrating
class-leading utility, advanced technology and distinctive styling.
The team drew on their experience of the demands and expectations of European
customers and carried out testing in some of Europe's harshest and most
diverse driving conditions.
The Civic Tourer will be built at Honda's UK manufacturing facility and
will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013, before being
launched in Europe from early 2014.
