Honda joins the growing list of Key by Amazon In-Car delivery partners

So does Acura, although currently for just one car.

Amazon’s in-car delivery service, Key, just got some new options. Now, owners of selected Honda and Acura models can get their Prime deliveries placed lovingly into the trunk of their cars.

That means no more having to worry about being in to receive your packages, enabling delivery at work, or anywhere the delivery people can get to your vehicle. The catch? There’s a bunch of pre-requisites to be able to use the service, but it’s free to use.

Honda and Acura join the list of Key-enabled car manufacturers, which has been steadily growing since 2018. Now owners of some new Honda and Acura models can get their Prime deliveries dropped off wherever they are parked.

A bunch of things need to happen before you can start using Key. You need HondaLink’s Remote Services packages, which is $110 per year after a 3-month free trial. You also need Amazon Prime, live in one of the 50 cities covered by Key, and don’t mind someone going into your trunk.

Then you need to set it up in the Key by Amazon app, linking your Amazon account to your HondaLink credentials, and adding your vehicle details. You also have to park within two blocks of your delivery address between 11am and 3pm. Your Amazon delivery driver will find your vehicle using its GPS location and stow any packages in the trunk.

If you want to use Key, you’ll need a HondaLink-equipped Touring or Elite trim levels of these models:

  • 2018-2019 Accord
  • 2018-2019 Accord Hybrid
  • 2018-2019 Insight
  • 2018-2019 Odyssey
  • 2019 Passport
  • 2019 Pilot
  • 2019 Acura RDX

Amazon is really trying to find the best ways to deliver its goods to you, wherever you are. Key by Amazon isn’t the whole answer, but it does fill a niche created by our ever-busy lives.
