Ar­rive SUNA than you think

Herald Sun - Motoring - - News -

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.
