The last time another car out-sold the Honda Civic in Canada, Hanson’s “MMMBop” was topping the charts and “Titanic” was making a splash in theaters.

For 2013, just like the previous 15 years before that, the Honda Civic is once again Canada’s best-selling passenger.

With 64,063 units sold in 2013, the Honda Civic outsold its closest competitor by 9,303 units. Since 1973, over 3.9-million Civics have been built by Canadians at Honda of Canada Mfg. in Alliston, Ontario. The Japanese automaker announced that there are approximately one-million Civics on the road in Canada today. The new 2014 Honda Civic is now available at Canadian Honda dealerships.

“We truly value the trust that our customers put in us when they buy a Civic,” said Dave Gardner, vice president of sales and marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “Nearly every Civic sold in Canada is built for Canadians, by Canadians, right here in our Ontario manufacturing facility. Sixteen years is an accomplishment that the entire Honda family can be very proud of; from our 4,200 associates in Alliston, to our regional and national staff and 230 dealers across the country.”
