We all know that Honda is one of the top automotive brands in the world. A new Harris Poll EquiTrend Study, however, declared Honda “Full Line Automotive Brand of the Year.”
The writer of this article has a problem with polls, but doesn’t have any problem with Honda being the brand of the year because “the all new Honda Accord and Civic are the # 1 selling cars in their respective segment ; there’s a reason for that: Consistent quality, price, performance and both hold the highest (resale) residual value in the industry.”
Of course, you also have to include the top-selling minivan, the 2014 Honda Odyssey as a contributor to that, as well.
“Honda consistently puts out vehicles that people want to drive, that have the best resale value, and are incredibly long-lasting and dependable,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington.
The saw it the same way at Torquenews.com. “To us this is no -brainer. Looking to the streets of any-town North America, we find decades old Honda Accords and Civic coupes and sedans selling in the mid 5 figures. No other brand can touch Honda for brand loyalty, longevity and long-term resale value.”

- Accord leads all passenger cars in retail new-vehicle registrations to individual car buyers for first three months of 2014
- Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey are #1 in segment in retail new-vehicle registrations
Accord is leading in the effort to repeat its 2013 performance as the most popular new car with individual American car buyers. Through the first three months of 2014, four of Honda’s five top-selling models – Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey – each led their segments in retail registrations for the first quarter of 2014, according to a Honda analysis of new vehicle registration data from IHS Automotive.
These same four Honda models earned top retail registrations status for the full year in 2013, with Accord earning the title of America’s most popular car based on retail registrations, and Civic and CR-V achieving both retail and outright best-selling status in their respective segments.
“We’re thrilled to be leading the pack in the first lap around the track in 2014,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “In a business environment marked by intense competition and heavy incentives, we want to thank our Honda customers for the trust they continue to place in our products.”
Highlights for the Honda brand in the first quarter of 2014 include:
- Excluding full-size pickups, the Accord, Civic and CR-V held three of the top five slots– first, third and fourth, respectively – in registrations among individual car buyers in the first quarter of 2014.
- The Accord, with retail registrations totaling 78,355 units through March, maintained a narrow lead of less than 1,000 units over its nearest competitor. Retail registrations accounted for 98.4 percent of all Accord registrations for the period, according to Honda analysis of IHS Automotive registration data.
- Civic retail registrations of 70,677 units led all small cars, beating the closest segment competitor by more than 10,000 units.
- CR-V retail registrations rose 3.9 percent to 67,773 units compared to the first quarter last year, giving CR-V a more than 7,000-unit lead over the #2 selling vehicle in the segment.

Most people don’t think of the Honda Civic as a good vehicle for moving to a new home; surely, it can’t move that many of your most beloved items, right?
This article from AutoExress shows how functional the Honda Civic Tourer really is and that it can, in fact, be a perfectly vehicle for helping you move.
If you can get past the fact that the author uses the word “boot” for trunk and “niggle” for…well, we’re not exactly sure, the article highlights some of the amazing features of the Honda Civic Tourer that you may not think about during a quick test drive.
- More storage VW Golf and Ford Focus and rear seats that independently flip up “revealing another huge storage area, which proved perfect for picture frames and suitcases.”
- More than 47 miles per gallon
- “The Civic’s big boot made light work of the task in hand, and my large bedside chest was squeezed in without the need to fold the back seats. There was even enough space left over to pack in a load of cushions, bedding and clothes.”
See? It’s actually a very spacious, functional vehicle.
“When people think of the Honda Civic, they usually think of it as an awesome compact, commuter car,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “It’s definitely that, but the Honda Civic Tourer is also extremely functional with way more space and storage than you think.”
