Coming off of an all-time sales record year in 2015, Honda kicked into the new year with yet another record sales month of staggering proportions. We knew that 2016 Civic Sedan would set the stride for the compact sedan segment. But what would follow in the first month of 2016 is a qualified mind blower -- in the ever changing automotive world, as well as a wake up call for Honda's competition.

Civic sales up 54.9%, say what?

That’s right, the all new 10th generation 2016 Civic Sedan just propelled American Honda Motor Company to an all time January sales record -- with a recorded increase in sales of 54.9%, over the same period last year.

2016 Civic Sedan, 2016 HR-V crossover buck the trend

Despite extreme Winter weather conditions, blanketing much of North America in snow, floods, and high winds, 2016 Civic sedan and the 2016 HR-V crossover overcame "end of holiday sales doldrums," and nation-wide bad weather to buck the historical trend of dismal Winter car sale.

Furthermore, Civic sales with a bit of help from the Fit subcompact platformed 2016 HR-V crossover, set a new sales benchmark for A.H.M.C. in the month of January, with 90,247 units sold -- in what is generally the worst month for car and truck sales in the auto industry.

We expect the trend to continue with the soon to be released 2016 Civic Coupe, a car the Honda calls the "most dynamic" in Civic history.
