SiriusXM Traffic is a useful service that gives drivers access to traffic speed and flow information along with accident information to assist in routing around congested areas.
On top of this, all new Audi models equipped with satellite radio still receive a three-month subscription to SiriusXM’s music, plus premier sports, live news, talk and comedy channels.
“Owning an Audi has always meant more than just driving, and our discerning customers demand the most technologically advanced vehicles available,” Audi U.S. chief Johan de Nysschen said at today’s announcement.
SiriusXM Traffic gathers information from departments of transportation, police and emergency services, traffic sensors and cameras, airborne reports and other sources so is one of the most accurate sources of real-time traffic updates. However, the service primarily covers the freeways and interstates in the most populated metropolitan areas in the country so smaller and less busy routes may not be included.
Pictured above is the new 2013 Audi Q5, one of the models that will be available with the four-year subscription.
