HD radio is continuing its march into cars across the country. The new roster of 2016 auto models with HD radio capability include makes from several international manufacturers. The new additions include the Honda HR-V; Honda Pilot; Hyundai Veloster; Mercedes GLA; and, Nissan Maxima. The 2016 models bring the number of HD-capable vehicles to more than 200. The HD Radio website has the complete list.
The topic of how people listen to radio and music in their cars has been a hot one of late. Nielsen reported on the demand for Internet connectivity at the start of the year. Larry Rosin also offered context on the industry in his talk at the RAIN Summit West this spring.
