Honda previews Civic wagon for the Euro market (pictures)
Honda's Civic Tourer concept proves that the practical wagon is back in vogue and sexier than ever.

GENEVA--The Civic hatchback wasn't popular enough to sell in the U.S., but it has proven popular enough in the European market to that Honda has spun the hatch off into a unique model, independent of the Civic sedan and coupe models' development. But what about European drivers who need more space than the current model offers?
The styling of the Tourer is largely identical to the hatchback from the B pillar forward -- look closely and you'll see the hidden triangular rear door pulls in the same place as the hatchback's. However, the rear of the vehicle has undergone a significant restyling.
The Honda Civic Tourer concept looks practically production-ready, so a safe bet would be that European motorists will be driving the wagon sometime in the next few years. Odds that it'll ever reach the U.S. market? Slim to none.
