Honda Motor Co.’s N-Box minivehicle topped Japan’s new vehicle sales rankings for the third straight month in February, industry data showed Monday.
Sales of the N-Box increased 8.6 pct from a year earlier to 19,429 units.
Nissan Motor Co.’s <7201> Dayz minivehicle ranked second, with sales of 16,093 units, down 2.1 pct, followed by Toyota Motor Corp.’s <7203> Prius hybrid vehicle, with 15,958 units, down 16.1 pct.
Nissan’s Note subcompact car came in fifth and Toyota’s brand-new C-HR sport-utility vehicle in sixth, amid popularity of models launched late last year, including through full remodeling or face-lifting.
Of the 10 best-selling models, five were 660 cc minivehicles with roomier cabins. (NEWSONJAPAN)
