"For those of us in the auto business, next week's North American International Auto show press preview marks the real start of the automotive new year.

We've got a lot to celebrate with both the Honda and Acura brands as we are coming off the second best sales year in our history, with all out best-selling performances by the Civic and CR-V, and retail sales leadership for Civic, Accord, CR-V and Odyssey. And for Acura, the MDX and RDX are turning in one record month after another as the best one-two punch in the luxury SUV game.

Now everyone's attention turns to Detroit and North America's biggest, grandest auto show. The two new models we will debut next week in Detroit - a completely redesigned Honda Fit and an all-new Acura TLX sports sedan - each will play a pivotal role in maintaining and building on our momentum in 2014.

Can't wait to share all the great news in just a few short days. Pack your galoshes, scarf and hat; we're headed to Detroit! Happy New Year and happy auto show everyone!"

- John Mendel, Executive Vice President, American Honda
