Auto Entertainment Packages to Be Offered

 4-18-03---Two new entertainment packages are the latest consumer electronics to be offered as inducements to the car-buying public. 

The Chevrolet Malibu Maxx will offer the Visteon Family Entertainment System, unveiled at the New York Auto Show. Whether you're the driver or the passenger, part of today's automotive experience is a vehicle that delivers dependability, quality and convenience.   

The Visteon Family Entertainment System boasts a seven-inch screen with a 16:9 ratio and can horizontally stretch a 4:3 image to fill the screen.  Auxiliary input jacks allow the passengers to plug in external audio and video devices such as games or video cameras.  The system also includes rear seat audio controls so the rear seat occupants can view DVD movies as well as listen to other available audio sources (AM, FM, CD, cassette) on the wireless headphones.  Because the DVD system is fully integrated into the audio system, the driver can choose to listen to the DVD audio source on the vehicle speakers and has the flexibility to enable or disable rear seat control of the DVD player. 

Visteon's consumer and customer research indicates that a tremendous demand exists for this type of multimedia product.  "Our rear seat entertainment system is an exciting example of how attuned Visteon and GM are to consumer lifestyles and their automotive technology preferences," said Visteon President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Johnston. 

And in a similar offering, Acura will feature XM as standard equipment on the all new 2004 Acura TL. 

XM's programming features 100 coast-to-coast digital channels: 71 music channels, more than 30 of them commercial-free, from hip hop to opera, classical to country, bluegrass to blues; and 29 channels of sports, talk, children's and entertainment. For the first time on radio XM brings to the car the same diverse selection of news sources available in the home on cable and DIRECTV. 

ďAs XM marches to the one million subscriber mark later this year, the all-new 2004 Acura TL represents another key expansion of XM into the great family of Acura and Honda vehicles," said Hugh Panero, XM President and CEO. "XM's critically acclaimed programming will be a perfect complement to the luxurious driving experience delivered by the 2004 Acura TL." 

The 2004 Acura TL joins the 2004 Acura RL as the first luxury sedans to feature XM as standard equipment. For Honda products, a dealer-installed option will be available later this

spring on the 2003 Accord and Pilot.  The Honda Division also expects to have XM Satellite Radio factory-installed beginning with the 2004 Accord later this year.  American Honda plans to expand the availability of XM-ready radios to additional Honda and Acura models during the 2005 model year and into the future.
