Honda has officially provided a glimpse of its all-new cloud-based infotainment system. Honda’s aptly named HondaLink system will make its debut on the all-new 2013 Accord, which is due to arrive this fall.

Infotainment is an important battleground among automakers. Honda, at the moment, is somewhat behind the curve, with consumers flocking toward the likes of Ford’s Sync, Hyundai’s BlueLink, and Toyota’s Entune. But soon Honda will has its own options for in-car connectivity.

“HondaLink will enable customers to put away their phone and still stay connected to the people, music and media they love,” said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda. “By creating an intuitive and customizable user interface, HondaLink allows drivers to access digital content as easily as choosing a radio station.”

Among the features bundled with HondaLink is Aha radio, which will enable users to listen to Facebook and Twitter audio newsfeeds, podcasts from NPR, location-based personalized restaurant listings from Yelp!, and access internet music services such as Slacker. Once in the car, consumers will be able to access personalized content via voice recognition, steering-wheel mounted controls and in-dash audio system controls. HondaLink can also be paired with a smartphone for an even greater connected driving experience.

“Honda’s strategy is about leveraging the cloud to bring a wealth of new information and services to Honda owners,” said Charles Koch, American Honda manager of new business development. “This is the next evolution of the connected car and the connected customer.”
