For the 20th consecutive year, the Honda Civic is Canada’s best-selling car and chances are, if you don’t have one insured on your auto insurance policy right now, you know someone who does. According to Honda, more than 2 million Civics have been sold in Canada since it first launched in 1973 making it a fixture in driveways across the country.
As Canada’s favourite car, the Honda Civic beat out its closest competitor, the Toyota Corolla, handily*. With more than 69,000 vehicles sold last year, the Honda Civic outsold the Toyota Corolla by almost 18,700 cars.
It’s an achievement that is not lost on Honda: “We are thankful for and deeply humbled by the loyalty and trust that our customers have placed in Honda and the Civic in the past 20 years,” said Jean Marc Leclerc of Honda Canada Inc. in a press release.
