Hyundai Makes Remote Services Standard On Ioniq And Blue Link-Equipped 2018 Models  FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 13, 2017 – Remote door lock, Remote Start with Climate Control and the Monthly Vehicle Health Report are among the Blue Link services Hyundai Motor America will make standard via smartphone, smartwatch and Amazon Alexa for three years.

The rollout of the standard services will begin with the launch of the 2018 Elantra GT, Santa Fe Sport and redesigned 2018 Sonata models.

In addition, Hyundai has also enhanced the Blue Link Remote Start with Climate Control feature to include control of the rear defroster and heated side mirrors for 2018 Elantra GT and Sonata.

'Hyundai owners request more than one million remote starts a month during the winter and perform more than a million remote locks annually. Our customers love to be connected, so improving their value and overall experience at no additional cost maintains our commitment to do better.'

Hyundai is going above and beyond the competition by making key Blue Link safety and security features like Automatic Collision Notification, SOS Emergency Assistance and Stolen Vehicle Recovery standard to subscribers. These important features include immediate access to the Blue Link Emergency Response Center in the event of an accident, faster connection to emergency services and 24/7, 365 days/year access to emergency assistance via the dedicated SOS button.
