Honda will present a new concept car based on the Civic Tourer at the Frankfurt motor show next week.

The concept, dubbed the Civic Tourer Active Life, comes with features designed to help cyclists, including an extendable loading rack which has space for two bicycles. The bikes can then be retracted into the 1668-litre boot space.

The car also features an integrated air pump, extra lighting, a shaded canopy with retractable bench and space for toolboxes and water bottles. The Active Life also comes with its own water tank and front wheel holder.

A special roof box also provides additional storage space.

Honda says the concept is finished in bespoke blue paintwork and sits on new 18in alloy wheels. Blue trim and stitching also features inside.

Power for the concept comes from Honda’s 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine, which recently set a Guinness World Record for efficiency, returning 100.31mpg over a route of over 8000 miles across 24 countries.
