4.0 out of 5

The Civic Tourer doesn’t hold its value as well as a car like the VW Golf estate, but the economy of the diesel model means ownership overall will be affordable. Honda has a very good reputation for reliability, so maintaining the car shouldn’t prove expensive either.

Honda Civic Tourer MPG and CO2

Honda expects the majority of Civic Tourer models to be sold will have a diesel engine and a quick look at the fuel-economy figures gives you the main reason why.

The 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel will return an impressive 74.3mpg and emits 99g/km of CO2, so road tax is free. The 1.8-litre petrol engine, on the other hand, only returns 45.6mpg and produces 146g/km of CO2, so road tax will be £145 a year here. Unfortunately, the performance of the petrol engine simply isn’t good enough to justify the poorer economy. The five-speed automatic gearbox available with the petrol only makes things worse, too.

Insurance groups

The entry-level Civic Tourer falls into insurance group 15. The mid-range SE Plus and SR cars are rated in group 16, with top-of-the-range models in group 17.

Servicing

Honda charges £195 for servicing the petrol model and £215 for the diesel after 12,500 miles or the first year of ownership. The car’s second service is due at 25,000 miles/two years and costs £265 and £285 respectively. After 37,500 miles or three years of ownership, a third service will cost £245 for the petrol or £265 for the diesel.

You can buy a five-year fixed-price servicing plan that costs £695 for the petrol or £995 for the diesel. This covers services for five years or 62,500 miles, whichever comes first.

Warranty

The brand’s three-year/90,000-mile warranty doesn’t last as long as those offered by Hyundai, Kia and Toyota, but the Honda Civic Tourer’s solid build quality does go some way towards compensating for this. You can extend the warranty at extra cost when the initial cover expires.
