Honda Cars India has launched Honda Connect - an intelligent and advanced information platform for customers - to commemorate its 20th anniversary in the country. The Honda Connect application is available on iOS and Android platforms for free download from the Apple App Store and Google Play for everyone in the country.
Speaking about the all-new information platform, Mr. Katsushi Inoue, President & CEO, Honda Cars India Ltd. said, “Today technology has become an integrated part of our lives.

This platform offers a value added communications channel that bonds Honda even more closely with our customers.” Honda Connect is an intelligent automotive application for smart phones to form an even closer connection with users. Using smartphones, Honda Connect’s diverse features provide convenient access to detailed information about Honda vehicles and other services.
The Connected Car features, supported by Honda Connect, will give Honda customers important information about their car even when they are not with it and provide extreme sense of safety and security.
