Dubbed to be manufactured at Honda’s Swindon plant in UK, the Civic Wagon (as the name implies) would be an estate version of the sedan. Bolder bodyline cues in the concept design showing large wheels, muscular rear arch, sporty central tailpipes, hidden door handles in the C pillars and an LED tail running across the rear. Though such cars might be considered as dud in the Indian scenario, but wagons have their own share in car sales in the European nations and Honda plans to play spoilsport to the VW Golf and the Ford Focus estate with their new offering.
The second on the list is the stunning Honda NSX Concept, the next generation revival avatar of the Honda NSX (sold as Acura NSX in North America). Though initially rumoured to be a V10, the NSX Concept would be a hybrid downscaled V6 supplemented by 3 electric motors. With one motor mated to the engine, the other two mounted at the front wheels would give the car that extra propelling force.
Also on debut would be the 2 wheel drive Honda 1.6 CRV i-DTEC- a compact derivative of the bigger 2.4 litre CR-V. The i-DTEC is a light weight Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology engine series mated to a manual box claimed to provide a good balance of performance, economy and low running costs to the owners. Stated to be manufactured alongside the Civic Wagon at Swindon, the CR-V should start rolling on road in the fourth quarter of 2013.
