    Got a lift home yesterday in a 1.6 I-DTEC CR-V I was very impressed really nice inside wasn't a top of the range one or anything but just felt a nice place to be!

    They picked me up in a Civic Tourer that was also really nice and I have to say the cabin didn't really feel any smaller than my Accord and there was loads of leg room in the back too!

    And they were both doing 50mpg round town!

    I and CJ were chatting about getting a test drive in the Civic Tourer when I was last at HH, unfortunately it didn't work out with timing.

    The Civic Tourer is from what I gather actually a very nice handling and performing car, though it's that terrible styling which has already decided its fate.

    I think the tourer actually looks nice, far nicer than the hatchback. Looks different and has that shooting brake sort of shape a bit like some of the old aerodeck models.

    I had a look at a white Civic tourer recently at a local Honda dealer and it was nicer up close than in photos - I was quite taken by it actually. Running costs of the diesel are very impressive. Still not sure about the front end though.

    The current Civic is one ugly machine, God knows what weed they were smoking when they designed the 9th Generation. So that a big NO from me.

    The 10gen is a massive milestone for the Civic they better not cock it up.

    It will have the new Honda design philosophy which personally is a acquired taste. The more you see it the more it grows on you but it's not a design which goes and stirs emotion and say yup that will do its coming home.

    I just can't get away with the Civic looks - both hatch and tourer.

    Not a real problem though as I'm lucky having a white CU3 on my drive to look at :Hooray:

    I love the look of the Civic tourer. Compare it to an Astra estate and it looks like Megan Fox

    It will be much better than the Astra which is.....an Astra.....That's the only polite thing I can think of to say about the Astra. :lol:
