Honda has started 2020 off with a bang. The Japanese carmaker recently released its January financial report, and it looks like its truck-based SUVs and trucks set a sales record.
The Honda HR-V saw a 24.8 percent increase in sales in January, setting an all-time record. The Ridgeline also saw a sales jump of 57.1 percent for the month with 3,083 deliveries, highlighting the truck’s increase in popularity. The CR-V also turned in a strong performance with 26,000 individual sales. As a whole, Honda’s truck lineup saw its best January sales with a year-over-year increase of 2.3 percent.
“As we enter a new decade, we will continue to focus on our core values and maintain the kind of sales discipline that has made us a retail sales leader in the industry,” said Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. “The arrival of our new CR-V Hybrid next month will also bring new opportunities to further strengthen our light-truck lineup and extend our two-year streak of record electrified vehicle sales.”
When the Honda CR-V Hybrid arrives later this year, it will be the first-ever electrified model in the Honda light-truck lineup, combining efficiency with the CR-V’s family-friendly features and ample interior space.
The numbers don’t lie: Honda’s truck lineup is a big hit with drivers. Stop by Bryan Honda today and see what all the fuss is about.
Honda finally gave the world a first-hand look at the 2020 Honda Civic Type R. This performance-focused vehicle was unveiled during the Tokyo Auto Salon, and highlighted a number of updates throughout to make it an even more exciting option if you love to drive.
The Type R has improved its driving dynamics in a variety of ways. Its new two-piece brake rotors and new brake pads help improve high-speed braking efficiency, while its suspension revisions give you superior ride comfort.
On the outside, the Civic R boasts a larger front grille opening to help improve its engine cooling abilities. It will also come available in a new Type R-exclusive exterior color – Boost Blue.
Throughout the cabin, you will find a more refined design that still speaks to the Civic Type R’s athletic persona. The Alcantara™ leather-wrapped steering wheel and newly redesigned shifter knob add an elegant touch to the design. This performance-oriented vehicle also now comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies.
You will be able to get a peak 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque with the Type R, thanks to its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. You can opt for one of three driving modes – Comfort, Sport, and +R.
Come catch the Civic Type R at Bryan Honda when it launches later this year.
