XM Satellite Radio to be available in some 2008 Hondas
Toronto, Ontario – XM Canada has announced that Honda Canada Inc. will begin factory installation of XM Satellite Radios in its model-year 2008 vehicles. The satellite radio will be standard in the all-new 2008 Honda Accord, and the redesigned 2008 Odyssey with leather trim.
“XM is proving to be a popular feature with our customers,” says Jim Miller, Executive Vice President of Honda Canada Inc. “This growing popularity has made expansion into a broader range of models within the Honda and Acura line-ups the next logical step.”
Honda will also expand the installation into Acura for 2008; the RDX and CSX vehicles equipped with navigation system will join the MDX and TL as offering the satellite radio as standard equipment.
