The current Honda Civic Tourer is recognized as the most compact model with generous trunk segment. Besides this attribute, Honda Civic Tourer is recognized as one of the most economical models in the segment. However, after the latest test of the Japanese, we can say that is really the most effective representative in the compact class.

Fergal McGrath and Warren Julian, two Honda engineers, colleagues at the European Research Center of Japanese, started a journey that has spread consumption over a distance of 13,498 kilometers. The two hit it off on June 1 in the Belgian city of Aalst and returned to the same place on 25 June.

During this time they have crossed 24 European countries. In the 25 days of the journey, carefully planned in advance, the two Honda engineers were able to supply only nine times, fuel costs down to just 645 euros, a tiny amount for a distance of 13.498 kilometers.

According to data throughout the experiment, Honda Civic Tourer diesel engine equipped with 1.6 liter i-CDTi 120 horsepower was able to travel about 1500 kilometers on a single fuel tank.
Although Technics statement announcing an average consumption of 3.8 liters / 100 km, the two engineers were able to fall 25% below this value. Thus, at the end of almost 13,500 kilometers, consumption registered by the Japanese model it was only 2.82 liters / 100 kilometers.

It is an absolute record consumption approved by Guinness World Records. Because performance is certified by Guinness World Records, the team had to collect evidence during the trip (GPS data, photos, movies and independent statements of witnesses etc). To provide accurate data relating to the position of the machine, the new Civic Tourer was equipped with a GPS monitoring system, the only difference from the model.
