Honda just set a sales record with the turgid '13 Civic. Sure, they can't sell them anywhere near MSRP and their median age is north of Buick territory, but this is now a company run by sales types so units sold is sacred above all else.

If they wanted to be the enthusiast leaning company they were through the turn of the century they cold put out a Mazda3 killer, bring the Euro design over or heck even rip all of the useless hybrid toys out of the CR-Z, knock 500 pounds off of it and make it worthy of the CRX heritage. But all of that would take investment $, and in their eyes why spent it when grandma really likes what is on the showroom floor now.
