TORONTO - Combined sales by Honda and Acura in July totalled 11,184 vehicles, up 27 per cent from a year ago when sales were hurt by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Honda Canada Inc. said Wednesday.

The gains were helped by record sales of Honda's CR-V sport utility vehicle and the Acura RDX and TL.

Honda sales amounted to 9,604 units, up 26 per cent, while Acura sales totalled 1,580, up 36 per cent.

The gains by the Japanese automaker came as South Korean automaker Hyundai posted a record for July and sold 12,850 units, up 0.8 per cent over the same month last year.

Kia sold 7,683 vehicles for the month, up 20.4 per cent compared with July 2011.
