“The success of the Civic over the years has led to the organic growth of a passionate and dedicated ‘Civic Nation’; a community made up of Canadians from all walks of life. This community may not have common interests or originate from the same place, but it’s the love of the Civic that unites them,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “Being built at our Canadian manufacturing facilities and achieving this remarkable sales milestone has certainly cemented Civic’s importance in Canada.”
The Civic is Honda’s longest-running automotive nameplate and its largest selling model worldwide. When introduced to Canadians in 1973, the Civic was acclaimed for its refined driving dynamics, quality construction, and world-class fuel efficiency. The then-revolutionary CVCC (Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion) engine that debuted in the Civic firmly established Honda’s place in history as a leader in powertrain innovation.
The Civic has continuously evolved over the course of the past ten generations, meeting the changing needs of Honda customers in Canada and around the world. The model continues to raise the bar for fuel efficiency, driving performance, and design innovation in the affordable compact car segment.
