2012 Mercedes A-Class will be integrated with iPhone and Siri


When Mercedes Benz decides to pack its cars with technology, the German automaker makes sure it does it right. With the introduction of the all new A Class at the Geneva Motor Show just around the corner, Mercedes Benz has added some finishing touches to its new brainchild, in the form of technology. The new A Class comes with an updated COMAND infotainment system with a new user interface that overrides the previous black and beige color scheme. The new system comes with a futuristic interface, three-dimensional design and a bunch of functions that’ll make your car iPhone 4S-friendly. With a Digital DriveStyle application enabled with AUPEO!

Radio streaming and connectivity to Facebook and Twitter, the system also gives out real-time traffic updates, point-of-interest searches with a swank new Garmin navigation system and enables you to spot your car in crowded parking lots!

Also, the new Mercedes system will support and integrate Apple’s Siri voice-recognition enabling users to send texts, emails and access weather reports and music with simple voice commands. All this comes with the entry level Audio 20 setup too and will soon feature in B, E and C Class models by autumn this year.
