    According to a report from Japan's Nikkei.com, Honda will stop selling the Civic sedan in its home market as soon as existing inventories run out. As customers shift their focus towards MPVs and more compact vehicles, the popularity of the Civic has dwindled substantially in Japan only 452 of the trusty Honda sedans were sold in the automaker's domestic market during the month of October.

    Honda is still committed to offering the Civic sedan in other markets, such as the United States and Europe, where sales numbers are substantially more robust. In fact, new versions of both the U.S.- and Euro-spec Civics are set to bow sometime next year. Honda will continue to manufacturer Civic sedas at its Suzuka plant for export purposes. It's unclear whether Honda will continue to import the European-built Civic Type R Euro hatchback into Japan. Thanks for the tip, Jim!

    Wow... that bad? And to consider, the Civic is a best-seller in other parts of the world.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Although to be honest the compact sedan category or C segment is getting smaller here as well, they use to be the bread and butter in the 90's and earlier 2000's... The B segment is taking over its place...

    Temporary lang naman ang pagkawala ng Civic sa Japan hangga't di pa dumarating yung next generation Civic next year.
