Did you see the Hyundai Super Bowl commercials last week? What about the one with Kevin Hart? It’s the commercial where the comedian offers his car to his daughter’s date and then follows the two of them throughout their evening, from the movies to a carnival to a city overlook. And by the end of the night, Hart is dangling from a helicopter near his Hyundai, watching his daughter and her date’s every move.
The commercial is pretty ridiculous, which is why we love it. But it also showcases one of the unique features found on the 2016 Hyundai Genesis sedan. It’s called the Blue Link Smartwatch App, and yes, it does allow you to track the location of your vehicle. But Blue Link offers so much more than that.
The Blue Link Smartwatch App is available on both Android and Apple watches, and when paired with a Hyundai Blue Link equipped vehicle, the power to control multiple commands is literally at your fingertips at all times. The smartwatch wearer can either tap an icon on the watch or use voice activation to initiate actions like remote engine start or stop, remote door lock or unlock, and remote flash lights or honk horn.
Those are not all the features, and the 2016 Hyundai Genesis is not the only new Hyundai car at our San Diego dealership to offer these benefits. With each Hyundai Blue Link equipped vehicle—whether it’s a 2016 Hyundai Elantra or a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe—the team at Kearny Mesa Hyundai can help you get set up to take advantage of these features and more. In fact, there are three Blue Link packages available for purchase. The Connected Care package is actually complimentary for the first year on all new Blue Link equipped vehicles, but you can also upgrade to the Remote or Guidance package. That’s when you take advantage of the smartwatch or smartphone features mentioned above, as well as remote climate control capabilities that allow you to set the cabin temperature and front defroster from a distance. But with all the Hyundai Blue Link packages, you can count on automotive diagnostic notifications, a monthly vehicle health report, and maintenance reminders.
So if you’re shopping for a smart new or used vehicle in or near San Diego, let us show you your options for a smart car at Kearny Mesa Hyundai. Your kids may not like the vehicle tracker component, but we think even teenagers will get over that if you let them borrow the family Hyundai. Just pair your Hyundai with a smartphone and not a helicopter, okay?
