The Civic is the Best Selling Car Again!Feb 8th, 2022
Driven by the popularity of the all-new 11th-generation Civic, recently named the 2022 North American Car of the Year, the Honda Civic is the best-selling retail passenger car in the U.S. for the sixth year in a row. Civic has dominated the compact car segment for 12 consecutive years and in 2021, captured one in four retail sales in the category.
A major gateway to the Honda brand, Civic continues to lead the industry with key customer groups:
- Since 2011, Civic is the No. 1 vehicle among Millennial buyers.
- It also has captured the most Gen Z buyers, first-time buyers, and multicultural buyers in the industry for the past six years.
Honda has sold nearly 2 million Civics in the U.S. since 2016 and Civic is the No. 1 selling certified pre-owned car in America in each of the past three years. And now the all-new 2022 Civic leads its competitive segment in residual value, according to J.D. Power.
"Our all-new 11th-generation Civic is the benchmark for the compact car class and a runaway success with young, first time and multicultural buyers.” said Mike Kistemaker, assistant vice president, Honda national sales. "Coupled with the HR-V and our CPO program, Honda has a strong three pillar approach to capturing young and first-time buyers into the future."
The 2022 Civic Sedan, sporty Civic Hatchback, and performance Civic Si Sedan deliver fun-to-drive dynamics, stylish design, an award-winning interior, excellent fuel efficiency, and cutting-edge standard technology. An all-new, high-performance Civic Type R will join the lineup this year. Learn more about the Honda Civic lineup here.
Introduced in 1973, Civic is the longest-running automotive nameplate in Honda history and is one of the top three best-selling cars in America over the past five decades with more than 12 million units sold.
