Siri is Set to Ride Shotgun in Honda Vehicles
Honda plans to incorporate Apple's Siri technology into future vehicles.
Available later this year as a dealer-installed option on the 2013 Honda Accord and the 2013 Acura RDX and ILX models, drivers will soon be able to make use of Apple's intelligent assistant tech that can answer a wide range of questions handsfree, making it perfect for use in the car.
Drivers with a compatible iPhone with iOS6 will be able to command Siri to perform a range of tasks while they keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. When engaged, it will even keep the iPhone's screen from turning on so as to reduce potential distractions.
In order to combine the Siri technology with the current interface, engineers rebuilt and re-engineered the standard software to combine the Honda Bluetooth Handsfree Link seamlessly with Siri.
As part of Honda's commitment to driver safety, the handsfree Siri interface makes perfect sense, and integrating it into the Accord, one of the automaker's most popular vehicles is no surprise. No dates have been set for the addition of the technology to other Honda vehicles.
With Honda's commitment to redefining the way drivers think of “standard”
Honda's luxury line of vehicles, Acura, will also be sporting the Siri technology, with it finding a home in their popular family-friendly RDX and ILX. As with the Honda models, there is no set date when the rest of the Acura lineup will feature Siri compatibility.
