2015 Chevy Safety Features: New Standards for Safe Driving
According to Chevy, the industry has nearly doubled the number of awards from last year, meaning the entire market has introduced some innovative new features. In particular, Chevy has made forward collision alert, blind-spot warning, and new engineering techniques the new standards for safe driving.
“Receiving this recognition from IIHS for the 2015 Spark, Volt, Malibu and Equinox is great news for Chevrolet and even greater news for our customers,” said Steven Majoros, director of Chevrolet Cars and Crossover Marketing.
As one of the world’s largest car brands, it’s refreshing to know that Chevy isn’t just focused on performance and fuel economy, but safety as well. You can rest assured when buying a Chevy, thanks to the new award-winning features.
Chevy has announced that six of its 2014 model-year vehicles will feature Siri Eyes Free integration, bringing everyone’s favorite pocket-sized personal assistant with drivers onto the road as part of Apple’s continued rollout.
Chevrolet’s 2014 versions of the Camaro, Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, SS, and Volt will all feature Siri Eyes Free as part of the MyLink infotainment system. Siri Eyes Free mode connects to MyLink through Bluetooth , allowing for those using iOS6 or iOS7 Apple devices to interact with the voice activation button found on the vehicle’s steering wheel.
This interaction allows drivers to access their calendars, playlists, contacts, and messages without ever having to take their eyes off of the road. Drivers can also make calls, hear the content of texts read back to them in Siri’s dulcet tones, and compose messages of their own. Siri Eyes Free was previously, and successfully, integrated into Chevrolet’s Spark and Sonic vehicles.
“The response to Siri Eyes Free integration in Chevy Sonic and Spark from our customers has been remarkable,” said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of U.S. Marketing, in a statement. “Easy, reliable and portable connectivity is a top priority for our customers, and Siri complements MyLink’s existing capabilities to help deliver an incredible driving experience, so we’re excited to expand this to even more customers.”
