Why Canada loves Civic?   

The Civic is Honda’s oldest and longest-running automotive nameplate globally. The model has sold more than 2.25 million units in Canada since its introduction in 1973. What makes it even special is that the Civic has been proudly manufactured in Canada at the Honda of Canada Manufacturing (HCM) plant in Alliston, Ontario, continuously since 1988, longer than any other Honda plant in the world. 

It’s not uncommon to see a Civic driving or parked in every street of Canada, and we Canadians have a special relationship with the Civic – how else would it become the top-selling car in the country for 24 years straight?
