2016 Honda Civic: They're Everywhere
by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on June 15, 2016
I've been seeing the new 2016 Honda Civic everywhere here in Los Angeles, which makes sense given how well they're selling. It was Honda's best-selling nameplate in the United States in May 2016, moving 35,396 units — that's up 20 percent from last year and therefore the previous model. It also stands in contrast to the Accord, CR-V, Odyssey and Pilot, which all went down from last year.
Therefore it seems like a reasonable assumption that the Civic's improvement is indeed a result of its redesign. Frankly, I'm surprised there hasn't been an even greater jump given just how superior the 2016 Civic is to its previous model (not to mention most competitors). Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if the jump were greater here in Los Angeles, given Honda's popularity here in the Golden State. The Civic and Accord were the No. 1 and No. 2 best-selling vehicles last year in California (respectively). Yes, vehicles, as in "not the Ford F-150."
So buying a 2016 Civic therefore may not be an especially distinctive decision, but it would nevertheless be a good one.
