Arrive SUNA than you think
THE next Honda hybrid won’t have only an intelligent powertrain but also an intelligent brain to tell it where to go.
The Insight VTi-L hybrid, launched this week, will include as standard equipment the SUNA digital traffic information system.
SUNA is Australia’s first traffic channel, broadcasting detailed information on traffic congestion and other road conditions to the VTi-L’s satellite navigation system (above).
It allows owners of Insights in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth to access immediate traffic information such as accidents, road closures, traffic congestion, major road works and special events.
SUNA helps drivers have an easier, more efficient and stress-free drive, says Honda Australia sales and marketing manager Stephen Collins.
‘‘This is the first time our in-car satellite navigation systems have included live traffic information, and we see great value in being able to offer this service.’’
Honda also plans to include the SUNA system in other models.
