Designed to make the most of its available space (and show that space off impressively), the Honda Civic Tourer Active Life is able to hold two bikes inside along with all the accoutrements we might want before, during and after a ride.
By placing the gas tank in the center of the car, it allows for a very deep well behind the rear wheels, which lets the forks mount low into the body. Pull the bike out, flip it around, and those same mounts double as a pull out work stand while lights in the tailgate illuminate it. The tailgate also provides an extending shade screen to keep you cool while playing mechanic.
Inside and out, there are numerous compartments to hold bottles, helmets, etc., and even an integrated inflator…
The aero design and gas sipping 1.6 liter i-DTEC engine make it just as friendly to your budget and the environment, too, setting a world record for best real world fuel economy over a recent 25 day tour through Europe. The actual gas mileage? How’s 100.31mpg (2.82l/100km) sound?
Along the sides of the boot are a tool box, water take, water bottle storage and more.
It’ll be shown in person at the Frankfurt Auto Show this fall, but we’re guessing it’ll remain a one-off concept rather than an option at your local dealer.
