Honda’s CR-V, MDX and Odyssey sizzle in March


By JOHN D. STOLL

March proved to be a record month for Honda truck sales as the automaker saw its Odyssey minivan, CR-V mini sport-ute and mid-sized Acura MDX luxury SUV have their best U.S. sales months ever.

MDX, selling 5,083 units, beat its former record mark of 4,365 units in March. The hot month comes as Ford’s Lincoln brand unveiled its Aviator luxo-ute, which will aim to snag sales from the MDX.

Year to date, MDX trails Lexus’ RX300 in the mid-sized luxo-ute segment, but is leading both BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz ML class.

Honda’s minivan, the second-best selling such vehicle in the United States behind Dodge Caravan through February 2002, pushed 15,020 units out the door in March, topping its old best by nearly 2,500 units.

Honda’s CR-V, which lagged only Ford Escape in sales in the mini-ute segment last year, tallied a record 13,722 units in March sales.

Honda hopes to maintain momentum through the spring as it plans the June launch of its mid-sized Pilot SUV, which will compete with mainstream players such as Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander and Nissan Pathfinder. Pilot’s base price tag is slated to be $26,000. It will replace the aging Passport in Honda's lineup.
