Over the last couple years, Apple’s voice recognition software for iPhone 4S or later, Siri, has become a best friend, personal assistant, and even an associate. Chevrolet is taking it a step further turning Siri into a passenger. If you’re in the market for a new car, stop into any Arizona Chevy dealer and check out the 2013 Chevrolet Spark or Sonic LTZ / RS. Siri will keep your hands free with your eyes in the road.

The new Chevrolet MyLink system allows you to stay connected with your life while you drive, while keeping safety a priority. Chevrolet is moving Apple’s Siri beyond the limits of the iPhone and iPad and is literally taking its show on the road. The 2013 Chevy Spark and Sonic LTZ and RS models are getting full Siri integration, allowing users to control the voice-activated digital assistant directly from their cars. Visit Phoenix Chevy to see how the feature is being integrated with Chevy’s MyLink entertainment system and will be accessible via the Spark and Sonic’s steering wheel-mounted voice activation control. Once a driver syncs their iPhone or iPad with MyLink via Bluetooth, Siri will become fully operational using the vehicles’ Eyes Free mode.

If you’re wondering whether Chevy is blocking any of Siri’s functionality, you’ll be happy to know that it’s not. Users will be able to make hands-free calls, play songs stored in their iTunes library or switch between AM/FM and satellite radio, listen to and compose text and iMessages, add calendar appointments and even post to their favorite social networks. However, if you ask Siri for something that will make you use your hands; she will decline to answer. Siri will assure that you avoid distractions via Apple’s new Eyes Free mode that lets you disable the smartphone’s screen via a steering wheel button.
