Honda has announced details of its new Civic Tourer which will be ready to drive away from dealerships in February.
However, for those eager to ensure they get their hands on the steering wheel of one of the new models, Honda said the British-built car will be available to order in December.
The new Tourer, which was designed and developed in Europe, is available with an OTR starting price of £20,265 for the entry level 1.8 i-VTEC S model. There are two engine choices available: the 1.8 i-VTEC petrol and the new Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 i-DTEC diesel.
The entry level S grade includes advanced technology features that help keep motorists in touch with the world while on the road such as a Bluetooth hands-free telephone, DAB radio and USB connectivity - and it also has 16 inch alloy wheels.
And for those looking for a bit extra in their new car, the SE Plus has rear sensors to help take the stress out of parking, while buyers who opt for the SR can enjoy front heated seats - especially useful at this time of year - and privacy glass.
