Following in the footsteps of Honda and Subaru, Acura has chosen the New York International Auto Show to reveal its newfangled tie-up with Harman. The cleverly-titled Aha infotainment platform — which aims to “make web content safe for drivers” — will soon be working its way into Acura motorcars, starting with the 2013 RLX. It’ll be part of a revamped audio system, integrated via Bluetooth and able to provide drivers with access to “tens of thousands of audio stations, including web content like Internet radio, on-demand music, live news, podcasts, audio books, Facebook and Twitter newsfeeds, personalized points of interest information and much more.” The Aha service is currently live in the US, Canada and Western Europe, and it sounds as if it’s working hard to lure in other automakers in the near future. Pricing details are nowhere to be found, but go ahead and bank on needing that Technology package when it comes time to approach the dealership.
