XM Radio is already a standard, factory-installed feature on all 2007 Azera, Elantra, Santa Fe and Sonata audio systems.

“Hyundai customers come to expect unique and innovative style and technology, along with performance, comfort and safety across our diverse product portfolio,” said John Krafcik, vice-president of product development and strategic planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The addition of XM Satellite Radio to these models is yet another great feature to enhance the already excellent value offered by all of Hyundai’s vehicles.”

“Hyundai was the first automotive brand to announce plans to make XM Radio standard across the board,” said Steve Cook, executive vice president, Automotive for XM. “The addition of XM’s coast-to-coast programming is another feature to remind Hyundai buyers that they are enjoying one of the best new car values on the market today. By the end of 2007, all Hyundai factory audio systems will feature XM’s 170-plus channels of commercial-free music, news, sports, talk, and entertainment.”
