Mercedes-Benz USA will expand installation of SiriusXM across its U.S. lineup, making it a standard feature for model year 2024 vehicles.
Under the multiyear extension of the services agreement, SiriusXM with 360L – SiriusXM’s most advanced audio entertainment experience – will make its Mercedes-Benz debut in future models.
SiriusXM with 360L combines satellite and streaming content delivery into a single in-vehicle entertainment experience, offering personalized recommendations and the ability to access related content. A “live sports” category makes it easier to find broadcasts of games and other sporting events.
With the SiriusXM’s Pandora Stations feature, drivers can create their own ad-free music stations based on the artist they are listening to.
Mercedes-Benz customers purchasing or leasing SiriusXM-equipped vehicles in the United States will continue to receive a six-month trial subscription to the SiriusXM platinum plan which includes access to SiriusXM outside the vehicles on the SXM App and on connected devices and speakers in the home.
The companies have partnered for more than 20 years, making Mercedes-Benz one of the first automakers to offer SiriusXM on its vehicles. General Motors was the first automaker to begin factory-installing SiriusXM on select Cadillac models in 2002.
Other brands with agreements with SiriusXM include Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, Ram, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Maserati, Ford, Lincoln, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche and Nissa
