Honda on Top Fourth Year in a Row
Honda, the fastest-growing automaker in retail sales and armed with 34 years of auto production experience, has claimed the top selling spot in the car, SUV, and minivan segments four years running. Customers in 2016 saw the advanced features, amenities, and value offered by Honda’s models and made the choice to put Honda in the top spot countless times over competitors like General Motors, Hyundai, Nissan, Ford, and Toyota. Honda claimed over 1.3 million sales of its lineup of reliable, fuel-efficient, and fun-to-drive cars and light trucks through more than 1,000 independent dealers, leading its third straight year of record sales.
Top Performing Models
Honda claimed the top spots in each segment with models that offered a blend of luxury, comfort, technology, and safety. The Civic, already primed for Type R variants in 2017, posted the all-time best sales performance in its 44-year history, making it the best-selling car among individual car buyers. Among midsize cars, the Accord, already zooming into 2017, claimed the top sales spot for the fourth straight year in a row, while the CR-V posted its seventh straight year of sales increases making it the best-selling SUV in America for the past 21 years. Also for the seventh straight year, the Odyssey, now fully redesigned for 2017, was the best-selling minivan. Rounding out the lineup, the Civic, CR-V, and Accord are the three highest retail-selling vehicles in the auto industry after full-size pickups for the fifth straight year, making it an incredibly successful year for Honda overall.
A Continuing Trend
After surging in popularity in 2016 and posting big sales numbers, it would be a tough road for any automaker to top last year in 2017, but with the release of new models like the Si Coupe and Si Sedan, and the introduction of new environmentally conscious models like the Clarity Battery Electric and Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, Honda is poised to repeat the feat and deliver quality vehicles with stellar customer satisfaction again.
See the Future
Billings, Missoula, Helena, Butte, Bozeman, Great Falls, and Kalispell car buyers looking for a taste of what 2017 has to offer can stop by any Montana Honda Dealer and test drive the all-new 2017 Honda CR-V, already available to consumers, and get a real feel for the future and what Honda has to offer in the coming year.
