Honda to Offer SiriusXM in More Vehicles Across Its Lineup
American Honda announced it is expanding availability of SiriusXM Radio on many vehicles across the Honda and Acura lineups. For the first time, SiriusXM will be offered on the Fit, CR-Z, and Insight models. Additionally, Honda will expand availability of the radio service on the Accord, Civic, CR-V, and Pilot. Acura ILX buyers will get SiriusXM as standard equipment. American Honda first introduced the satellite radio service in 2003. The recent expansion is part of an agreement between Honda and Sirius XM Radio to extend their partnership through January 2020. Right now, customers who purchase a Honda or Acura vehicle with satellite radio receive a 3-month subscription to the radio company's All Access Package, giving them access to everything from NFL games to NASCAR events to Oprah Radio. Internet radio has become an important major feature for modern cars. SiriusXM is available in cars from every major automaker in the U.S., the company says. It has more than 25 million subscribers.
