NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — SiriusXM today introduced its newest aftermarket radio – SiriusXM Tour™ – which can deliver subscribers the functionality of SiriusXM’s next generation platform, SiriusXM with 360L, in a portable unit that can be used in the car and at home. SiriusXM Tour is on display this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas at the SiriusXM/Voxx booth (#13518) in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
