“Continued growth” is the theme from DTS Inc. when talking about HD Radio in cars.
The company is exhibiting at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, and it says 34 model-year 2017 cars will feature HD Radio receivers.
“The rollout of numerous HD Radio enabled cars throughout 2016 and into 2017 mark the continued growth in consumer demand for digital radio services across North America,” said Jeff Jury, general manager of HD Radio and automotive, in the announcement.
Fourteen of the 34 new models with HD Radio will be available before the end of this calendar year including Acura NSX; Infiniti QX30, Q60 and QX60; Kia Niro; Lincoln Continental; Nissan Pathfinder and GT-R; Toyota 86, Yaris iA and Corolla iM; Volvo S90 and V60; and Jaguar F-Pace. A number of other brands plan models that will be available after the new year. DTS says its HD Radio “ecosystem” now encompasses 36 auto manufacturers and some 200 vehicle models.
