Honda to cease selling Civic sedan in Japan

Honda to cease selling Civic sedan in Japan

If recent reports coming out of Japan are to be believed Honda will finish selling its Civic sedan in its home market as soon as existing inventories run out. Japanese customers have firmly shifted their focus towards MPVs and more compact vehicles, meaning the popularity of the Civic has sharply decreased with only 452 sales in the JDM last month.

Other markets tell a different story, however, and Honda is still committed to offering the Civic sedan in the United States and Europe, where sales numbers are much more encouraging. New versions of both the U.S.- and Euro-spec Civics are set to be released late next year. For now, Honda will continue to build Civic sedans at its Suzuka plant for export purposes. The future of the Civic sedan here in NZ is at this stage, unclear.
