US: Sirius XM to expand Honda connected vehicle services
Issue Date: 2016-02-24

Sirius XM Connected Vehicle Services Inc. will provide the next generation of connected vehicle services for Acura and Honda vehicles. A new, five-year agreement extends the relationship between Sirius XM and American Honda Motor Co., Inc. to help deliver a new and expanded array of safety, security and convenience services.

SiriusXM has been delivering connected vehicle services to Honda and Acura customers since 2013 through HondaLink and AcuraLink. HondaLink and AcuraLink provide convenient access to maps, weather, restaurants and points of interest, in addition to remote and assist services. Users can also schedule service appointments, repairs and more.

American Honda will start to expand on these core services, adding new and improved features starting with the launch of 2017 Acura vehicles. The updated standard package includes four years of Automatic Crash Notification and SOS emergency assist on select Acura vehicles, an extension of the company's commitment to enhancing the security of their customers.
