Technology Features Taken to the Next Level


Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are easy to use, drivers simply have to plug in their iPhone or Android phone into the USB port of the dashboard and activate it before they start driving. These revamped infotainment systems provide convenient access to common iPhone and Android apps such as Maps, Messages, Music, Phone, and Podcasts, and select third-party apps without the need for hand or eye contact.

The interactions with these features such as making a call, replying to text messages and others are done through a voice control that is activated just by pressing a control button on the steering wheel. This is an attractive and very useful feature to have. Accidents can happen in a fraction of a second and this technology does a lot to keep drivers’ eyes on the road and hands on the vehicle, reducing the possibility of collisions from occurring.
