HD Radio firmly entrenched in auto's upper crust


With this week’s news that Mercedes announced the option of HD Radio as part of the infotainment systems in their newest diesel models, the R320, ML320 and GL320 Bluetecs, HD Radio now is firmly entrenched in automotive’s upper class.

Alongside BMW (which offers HD Radio as an option across its entire product line) and Jaguar (available in its redesigned 2008 luxury XJ sedan), Mercedes is now offering upgraded audio entertainment to this consumer group.
