Limited info......but not too long ago I saw a sketch of the 2014 FIT!!!! It looks similar form the side, as I was talking with Neal last week, I expressed to him the lack of a rear door handle on the sketch that I saw.

I wouldn't be surprised if this car (Civic Tourer) comes here at a later point......The smaller SUV which was shown at the Detroit auto show will be the only factor on which would NOT allow the Civic Tourer to arrive in the US......This look, from the Small SUV, FIT and now this Civic is a good indication on the aggressive styling and electronics Honda will be offering in the next 3 years.....Expect the FIT to have class leading electronics, safety and an engine that will make most of us very happy.......That is about all I am able to say at this time........OH, one more thing.......the MPG on the FIT will increase DRASTICALLY!!!

As much as I love the overall design of this Civic Tourer, I doubt that AHM will bring it to North America. The press release clearly states "designed in Europe for European customers" which means they will most likely keep that model exclusively for European market (just like Toyota Auris) and probably later on being exported to Australia & South Africa.

It's the next-gen Fit is what I'm really really looking forward to. The JDM version will debut in November I guess? Hope there will be no delay on the Mexican plant so they can produce the car as soon as possible. I've decided to carry on with my aging Civic for another year until the new Fit arrives (was in the market for 2012 Civic, didn't like how it drives, waited until 2013 Civic arrived, but my wife wants hatchback after seeing the Urban SUV concept, so...).

And we should know the next-gen Stream in April (Shanghai Auto Show), although the Stream won't be for North American market either.

I have a feeling this civic tourer is technically the current civic hatch plus even more weight...
On top since the volume selling sedan civic didn't get the ED engine, the hatch & tourer have no hope for the upgrade.

The new fit/jazz will just kill this car - better handling, better engine choice, better interior package...

I suppose with the new platform arriving soon this civic wagon will be axed in 3-4 years anyway.

Agree. It ain't coming to America. It's a Bahn burner,that's all it is. I prefer the upcoming Urban SUV with it's more upright styling,more ground clearance,easier step in,and higher seating position. You've got to see "over" traffic in the U. S.

Ive never believed the BS about it being to aerodynamically challenged. The problem has always been that the underpowered engine struggles even under normal loads and therefore it sucks up fuel trying to pull all that weight. So why WOULDN"T the fuel consumption increase drastically with the ED engine and a new tranny?

Honda's going to compete with itself pretty soon with all these small cars.
