"We’re seeing growth opportunities in cars and light trucks for both Honda and Acura brands as the market continues to level off," said Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division."Acura SUVs are leading the charge in luxury with RDX and MDX as consistent top sellers, while the Honda brand is extending its industry leadership in passenger car sales and building toward a full decade of SUV sales growth."

 

BRAND REPORT

Sales Highlights

Honda’s faith in cars continues to pay dividends, with Civic pulling down a nearly 30% share of the compact segment—helping the brand increase its lead in retail passenger car sales. On the truck side, Passport gained new sales momentum with its best month since launch of the new generation last year.

  • Civic sales topped 32,000 in May as it continues to dominate compact sedan sales, with Accord contributing another strong month on sales of over 23,000 units.
  • Passport had its best sales month since launch, 3,434 units, while its stablemate the Pilot posted solid sales of over 12,000 units and HR-V earned almost 9,000 new customers for the month.
  • Honda electrified vehicle sales topped 6,000 for the month, with Insight leading the way with 2,653 units sold.

Model Notes

Honda is growing its lead as the #1 retail passenger car brand in America, gaining the most share of any mainstream brand.

CR-V is extending its lead as the retail #1 SUV/CUV in America and continues to fend off new competition, beating the new RAV4 in a Car and Driver comparison test.

 

BRAND REPORT

 


Sales Highlights

May brought strong sales results for Acura, with another record month for RDX, an 8% increase for MDX, and a 21% gain for ILX, Acura's gateway model.

  • RDX set a new May record, its 11th out of the last 12 months, gaining 15.1% on sales of 5,415 units to further cement its status as #1 retail sales leader in segment and #3 model in all of luxury.
  • The refreshed ILX, which plays a critical role in conquesting buyers new to the Acura brand, gained a robust 21.1% on sales of 1,351 vehicles in May.
  • MDX showed a solid increase of 8% for the month on sales of 4,425 units.
