It appears that despite the majority of people turning to buy larger vehicles, Honda of American passengers' cars, that is their sedans and hatchbacks are doing quite well!

As we all know already, Americans and even to some degree, some Filipinos, have been ditching their sedans for something larger. Be it a van, a crossover SUV, an MPV, or SUVs, many people have expressed that they feel safer inside these behemoths and also, they like the space. Many of our countrymen, after all, have growing families that need transport so why not ride together inside the comfort of a large vehicle right?

Honda of America though, after a lot of months of slugging through some difficult times, is now seeing a surge of their car sales. Cars being sedans and hatchbacks. And seeing that this is Honda, what we’re talking about here in the Honda Civic and the Honda Accord all of their constituent variants.
