So what is VIRTUAL@Honda?

To learn what VIRTUAL@Honda really means, let us first take a look at what the individual letters in the “VIRTUAL” part really means;

  • V- Visit Online
  • I – Inspect Models inside-out with 360 degrees feature
  • R – Reserve your vehicle and service appointment
  • T – Test drive schedule
  • U- Unit availability query
  • A- Access your account
  • L- Live chat with a sales consultant

As you can see, VIRTUAL@Honda is a very powerful tool that aims to provide Honda’s customers a way to access aftermarket services, and car purchasing from the safety of their homes.

Not only will the customers be kept safe, HCPI’s employees working in its many dealerships around the Philippines will likewise be spared from further physical contact. It’s a win-win situation in terms of health and safety.
