The people have spoken and despite reported criticisms of the 2012 Honda Civic, it sold more than 30,000 units in November…beating out all other compact cars, including the Toyota Corolla that only sold 22,000 units.
Some called the Honda Civic bland and boring, but maybe that’s what the people want.
Well, Honda also listened to the critics and has a revamped version of the Honda Civic coming in just a couple months. It will be interesting to see how the sales between the two Civics will compare. My prediction is the 2013 Civic will take over the previous version, but it will still stay in the top five compact cars.
“The Honda Civic will always be a strong seller because it has been around for so long and has shown how dependable it is,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda dealership in Wenatchee. “The 2012 Honda Civic lives up to the Civic name and gives drivers and passengers everything they expect in a Civic, including excellent gas mileage. The 2013 Civic is a little sportier and has improved performance. I love both Civics.”
For your opportunity to see why the Honda Civic beat out all other compact cars, come to Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda or Sims Honda for a test drive.
The 2013 Honda CR-V is one of the best-selling crossover SUVs in the industry. Here is a link a couple different video reviews from the Car Connection, including side-by-side comparison of 2013 Honda CR-V and the new Ford Escape. Watch the videos for all the details, but here are the highlights
- The 2013 Honda CR-V has lots of space and gives best-in-class gas mileage
- The 2013 Honda CR-V gets 28 city mpg/31 hwy mpg
- It has more cargo space than the Ford Escape
- The third row of seats can fold down with a pull of a single lever
- The dash is attractive and easy to use
- The 2013 Honda CR-V starts at $22,000
While the new Ford Escape might be a little zippier, you sacrifice gas mileage, which is important with gas prices so high in Northwest. It should also be noted that the Ford Escape lacks leg room up front, including for the driver, which is unfortunate because the driver is the one always in the car.
According to the Car Connection, the 2013 Honda CR-V is “best for cost-conscious families” who want “value and space.” Check the video and then come to Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealership to take the 2013 Honda CR-V for a test drive!
