Oh my!:eek2 But it's true. Fits are everywhere in Japan. Civics are visible, but not as much as the Fit.



Honda to End Civic Sales in Japan

Honda Motor will stop selling its longtime flagship mid-size sedan, the Civic, in Japan 38 years after its debut, it emerged on Tuesday.

The carmaker is closing the curtains on the Civic due to plunging demand for the model, with only 452 units including hybrids sold in Japan last month.

However, Honda will continue selling Civics in overseas markets including the U.S. and Europe, and is preparing an updated model exclusively for export.

Some three million Civics have been sold in Japan since the first model was launched in 1972. Introduced in Korea in 2006, only 5,299 have been sold here as of the end of last month.

The retirement of the Civic in Japan reflects the transformation of the automotive landscape there. Demand for gasoline-powered compacts and luxury cars has been dwindling due to a growing preference for hybrids, smaller cars with low motoring costs, and multi-functional vehicles emphasizing practicality. The top selling car in Japan in October was Toyota's Prius hybrid, followed by the fuel-efficient Honda Fit.

Honda self-destructed the Civic. What I mean by that is they created enough models below and above what the Civic offered. The Civic got squeezed out by the Fit (a.k.a. Jazz) and Insight and now the CR-Z.
The Civic kept on getting bigger and going into (Japan-spec) Accord-size territory.

yeah, watch all the cars from the 80's to now, every single car is now up to the next level of size in the class they started. the civic now is bigger than the 93 accord maybe even bigger than gen 5 accord. the worst vehicle out of all in general is trucks. they did a review and said if they put all of the technology of the motors of the new trucks into the trucks of the early 80s they would get possibly 5 to 10 more miles per gallon and could be 30mpg trucks but they kept making them bigger and bigger, i see it at my job everyday, the guy that has to drive his ford excursion to work, really? like they wanted the trade off. the more efficient the motor the more weight they made it pull so it wouldn't change the gas mileage.
