43,556 new Civics were sold in 2021.
More than 2.25 million have been sold in Canada since 1973.
This was a very predictable outcome. As the best-selling car in Canada since about midway through Jean Chrétien’s tenure as Prime Minister, the Honda Civic has been a favorite for its efficiency, reliability, and great drive. Its reputation has once more carried it to the top of the charts in 2021 as the best-selling car of the year.
Its reputation certainly helps but Honda’s not messed around with its winning formula too much since the partially unloved 2001-2005 7th generation Civic. In fact, the latest 11th generation Civic introduced last year is likely the most appealing compact car in the segment, at least we and Canadian consumers seem to think it is.
“We are extremely pleased and humbled by how Canadians continue to embrace the Civic,” says Steve Hui, Assistant Vice President at Honda Canada. “Almost everyone has a Civic story to tell. As a vehicle that appeals to a wide variety of lifestyles, from those looking for their first car, as a people mover and grocery getter for growing families, to tuner and automotive enthusiasts, the Civic is a safe, affordable, fun and reliable car that caters to many needs. The all-new 2022 Civic Sedan and Si are built in Canada which is something Honda, and our talented Canadian manufacturing associates, are extremely proud of.”
