Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 42 - 74 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Unsurprisingly, the most attractive running costs belong to the 1.6-litre diesel. It may be more expensive to buy but offers excellent fuel economy, with a claimed average consumption of 74.3mpg.

That gives the Tourer a theoretical average range of 817 miles on a tank of fuel.

Petrol versions, by contrast, average a claimed 45.6mpg.

The diesel also has very low CO2 emissions (detailed in the section below), meaning the lowest possible VED and company car costs.

Bear in mind that the official quoted Honda Civic Tourer running costs are for the base trim grade with 16-inch wheels.

If you’re after the lowest Honda Civic Tourer emissions rating, you need the diesel. It generates an impressively low 99g/km of CO2, which at launch places it in the lowest VED bracket for road tax.

The i-VTEC petrol engine emits 149g/km of CO2.

All manual models feature a start/stop system and all Tourers include the same instrument cluster display as the hatchback, with a colour scheme that changes from blue to green if you’re driving efficiently, plus an ‘ECON’ mode which dulls the throttle response to help save fuel.

The Tourer is built at Honda’s Swindon plant. The company has an excellent reputation for durable cars and as such you should have few concerns over Honda Civic Tourer reliability.
