AMERICAN HONDA AUTO SALES CONTINUE RECOVERY IN SEPTEMBER

 AMERICAN HONDA AUTO SALES CONTINUE RECOVERY IN SEPTEMBER
 TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Sales of American Honda automobiles in September totaled 68,347 units, down slightly (1.9 percent) compared to sales for the same period in 1991.
 The Honda Division registered 58,355 automobile sales for the month, up 0.4 percent from 1991 levels. Domestically produced Accord and Civic automobiles represented 45,347 units, almost 78 percent of total Honda Division sales for September.
 Sales of the top-selling Accord totaled 36,033 units, an increase of 11 percent over last year and the third best month of 1992 for Accord sales. The Honda Prelude continued its strong performance in 1992 with 3,217 sales in September, up 38 percent.
 The Honda Civic recorded 19,105 sales in September, down 18 percent compared to 1991 levels. Available in only two bodystyles for much of 1992 compared to four in 1991, Civic sales are expected to increase as the newly introduced Civic Coupe joins the Civic del Sol to bring the 1993 Civic line to four distinct bodystyles.
 Year-to-date sales of the top-selling Honda Accord stand at 298,647 units, as the Accord widened its lead to more than 26,000 units over its closest competitor. Sales of the totally redesigned 1992 Prelude stand at 28,733 units through September, an increase of almost 45 percent over 1991.
 Hampered by limited product availability, Acura Division sold 9,992 automobiles, a 13.8 percent decline compared to last September. Maintaining its position as the top-selling luxury-performance import model, the Legend posted its strongest sales month of the year, registering 5,456 sales in September.
 September sales also mark the closing of the traditional October- September model year. Total American Honda automobile sales for the 1992 model year totaled 771,321 units, a decline of 5.4 percent compared to 1991. The Honda Accord, with 387,881 sales, closed the model year as the top-selling passenger car in the United States, more than 40,000 units ahead of its nearest competitor.
