“It’s amazing the difference in sales from a year or year-and-a-half ago,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda in Burlington. “Honda was struggling after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, but we’ve fully recovered and, with the help of some great new cars like the 2013 Honda Accord, we’re back on top.”
Honda’s luxury brand, Acura had sales that were up 26.3%.
“Our core models, Civic, Accord, CR-V and Odyssey, continue to lead the industry where it counts,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda. “It’s particularly rewarding to see Accord and Civic winning new customers against a headwind of competitor incentives and value-reducing fleet sales.”
“The Honda Crosstour is a vehicle that doesn’t get a lot of attention, but is a great option for people who want more than car, but not CR-V,” Hofkamp said. “The Honda Pilot has always been one of our most popular vehicles, especially for families. With tax returns coming back, I’m not surprised to see boosts with both of these vehicles.”
