Why Canadians LOVE the Honda Civic

For 15 years straight, the Honda Civic has been Canada’s bestselling car, so we must be doing something right, wouldn’t you think? SInce 1973, 1.7 million Civics (and counting) have been parked in driveways across the country. They have given the kids a ride to school, been teenagers’ first vehicles and have been the car Canadians trust. So what’s the big deal? Why is the Honda Civic the car of the country?
