Honda had a great month in February, increasing sales significantly over last year. The Honda and Acura divisions of Honda Canada Inc. increased by 21 percent, and the Honda Automobile Division sales rose 22 percent over last year.

These sales spikes bring the Honda brand above the rest of the industry. The Acura brand is nearing its 30th anniversary in Canada, and with it is bringing in exceptional sales.
