Honda’s first foray in the American market started 60 years ago in Los Angeles. Although its operation sold motorcycles, the company was already dabbling in cars by modifying the paint job on a fleet of 1961 Chevy pickups. The repainted trucks were seen all over Southern California as they were used to deliver bikes to dealers. Its expansion into passenger cars came in 1970 with the sale of the 2-passenger N600 which was replaced by the Honda Civic in 1973. The fuel economy of this small car made it a bestseller during the energy crisis of the 1970s.
Throughout all those years, Honda has earned a reputation for producing highly dependable and fuel-efficient vehicles of all kinds. The 2019 Honda Civic now comes in a sophisticated sedan, a flexible hatchback, or a powerful speedster. Large families will enjoy the 8-passenger capacity of the 2019 Honda Odyssey minivan. When you need excellent handling and interior space, the compact 2019 Honda HR-V crossover delivers plenty of both. The 2019 Honda Accord transforms family transportation into an elegant mid-size and also has a hybrid variation.
