Ever since Siri came into my life, along with my iPhone 4S, I’ve wanted her to integrate with my car. Sadly, Siri doesn’t really integrate perfectly with my current ride, though it manages to do a fairly decent job.
Mercedes-Benz, however, is going all out with their upcoming A-class. They are offering a new Drive Kit Plus that offers full iPhone integration with the car, including Siri access. You’ll be able to use voice commands to find the music you want, send text messages, check the weather, set reminders – whatever.
Now, the A-Class really isn’t my type of vehicle, and I’m not going to buy one just because of the Siri integration. But Siri integration is just the thing that would sway me from one vehicle to a similar model by a different brand. Kudos to Mercedes. The rest of the automotive world? Take note.
