Siri to be offered in Chevrolet Aveo and Cruze starting March

Article by Anita Panait, on February 27, 2013

Chevrolet Aveo and Cruze models fitted with the Chevrolet MyLink technology will be available with Siri starting March 2013. The all-new Trax small sports utility vehicle will also be offered with MyLink connected radio and Siri when it is rolled out this spring. Susan Docherty, president and managing director, Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe, expressed excitement in the fact that Chevrolet will be one of the first auto brands to offer Siri Eyes Free integration in Europe.

She said that “safe, easy, reliable and portable” connectivity is a top priority for their customers, noting that Siri complements MyLink's existing capabilities to help deliver an “incredible driving experience."

Through Chevrolet MyLink technology, drivers with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks, allowing them to safely focus on the road and on the wheel. To further minimize driving distractions, Siri comes with the Eyes Free mode that allows drivers to interact with their iPhones while preventing the screen of the device from lighting up.

Drivers could also link their iPhone with the MyLink radio via Bluetooth, pair with the system, and use voice activation button in the steering wheel to start and end sessions with Siri in Eyes Free mode.

Current owners of an Aveo or Cruze fitted with the Chevrolet MyLink connected radio can choose to upgrade their systems for Siri capability in the next few months. Siri is currently available in Beta only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad (3rd and 4th generations), iPad mini and iPod touch (5th generation), and requires access to the Internet.
