2013 Chevrolet Sonic, Spark are the first vehicles to offer Siri Eyes Free integration

Article by Christian A., on February 20, 2013

The smart assistant Siri is already available on the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic and Spark vehicles with Chevrolet MyLink. Cristi Landy, Chevrolet marketing director for small cars, said that Chevy Sonic and Spark are the first vehicles to get Siri Eyes Free integration. She also said that the automaker’s customers consider safety, ease, reliability, and portable connectivity as its top priorities.

Siri complements MyLink's current capabilities to help in delivering an awesome driving experience. Because of the cars' standard Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, customers who have a compatible iPhone that runs iOS 6 could instruct Siri to do several tasks while they don’t risk their safety in keeping their eyes on the road and making sure that their hands stay on the wheel.

To lessen distraction further, Siri now has an Eyes Free mode that allows drivers to use just their voice to interact with their iPhones while keeping the device's screen from lighting up. Drivers would only have to connect the iPhone with the MyLink radio through Bluetooth, pair it with the system, and use the steering wheel voice activation button to start and conclude sessions with Siri in Eyes Free mode.

The Spark and the Sonic both come with six months of OnStar's premium Directions and Connections service. OnStar provides additional safety, security and connectivity to these vehicles, which include services like Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Vehicle Diagnostics and Roadside Assistance.

Majority of smartphone owners can download the RemoteLink Mobile App, which enables OnStar subscribers to control and manage some vehicle functions on their phone. For more details about OnStar's services, simply go to onstar.com. Starting March, 2013 Chevrolet Spark and Sonic owners can upgrade their MyLink radios for Siri capability.
