Not only did the Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V, and Odyssey all lead their segments last year, but the Accord and Civic proved to be the two most popular vehicles with California drivers in 2014.

The Accord dethroned the reigning king of California, the Toyota Prius, which had been the Golden State’s best-selling vehicle in 2012 and 2013. The Accord’s 71,578 retail registrations narrowly beat out its hybrid competitor’s 71,210 sales, according to IHS Automotive, the research firm that counts new vehicle registrations.

“California is a critical battleground for the auto industry, and it tends to set the tone for the country in terms of product and sales trends, so it’s great to see California buyers choosing Honda over the competition in key product segments,” said John Mendel, American Honda Motor’s executive vice president of sales. “We’re in a very strong position with core products like Accord, Civic and CR-V and we’re going to really fortify our light-truck lineup with the launch this spring of the all-new HR-V crossover and the summer arrival of the redesigned Pilot SUV.”
