Johannesburg - Toyota South Africa has announced that it will be rolling out in-car Wi-Fi and other connectivity features on all new Toyota and Lexus vehicles sold from the beginning of September 2019.
This initiative, created in a partnership with Vodacom Business and Altron, is said to be the world’s first convergence of Wi-Fi and connectivity features in one package across an entire model range.
“As of 01 September 2019, all new Toyota and Lexus models sold in South Africa will come standard with in-car Wi-Fi including 15GB free data (which you can top up) as well as a host of connectivity features and benefits courtesy of Toyota Connect, a major extension of the MyToyota App,” said Toyota SA President Andrew Kirby.
The new ‘connectivity hub’ will be known as Toyota Connect, and it will be housed within the MyToyota App, which is fully integrated with the dealer and manufacturer systems.
In addition to the aforementioned in-car Wi-Fi, the initiative offers a wide range of convenience and safety services, including roadside assistance with impact detection, giving customers real-time support with AA-access around the clock.
