Chevrolet integrates Siri into 2013 Spark and Sonic

Article by Anita Panait, on November 27, 2012

Chevrolet will integrate Siri into the US version of the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic in early 2013, the carmaker announced during the Los Angeles International Auto Show. Through the Spark and Sonic’s standard Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, customers with a compatible iPhone -- 4S or newer -- running iOS 6 can instruct Siri to perform a number of tasks while they are driving, allowing them to focus their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.

To reduce distraction, Siri comes with an Eyes Free mode that allows users to interact with their iPhone just through their voices while keeping the device's screen from lighting up. To start the operation, a user could just simply connect their iPhone with the MyLink radio via Bluetooth. Once paired with the system, the user should use the steering wheel voice activation button to start and end sessions with Siri in Eyes Free mode.

Both the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic are endowed with six months of OnStar's premium Directions and Connections service. OnStar’s services like Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Vehicle Diagnostics and Roadside Assistance ensure that both the Chevrolet Spark and Sonic are safe, secured and connected.
