Mercedes-Benz To Integrate iPhone 4S and Siri Into New A-Class

Mercedes-Benz has announced plans to integrate the iPhone and Siri’s voice control functions into its new A-Class vehicle. The new A-Class vehicle will seamlessly merge iPhone 4S functions into the car’s in-vehicle display via Daimler’s Digital DriveStyle App and COMAND Online multimedia system.

With the “Drive Kit Plus for iPhone” system, drivers will be able to plug in their iPhone 4S smartphones and tell Siri to do a variety of tasks, including sending text messages, placing calls, changing music and radio channels, updating statuses on social networks and locating services.

All iPhone 4S features can still be accessed as is when connected, and the system even recharges and pipes video out to the in-dash monitor.

Mercedes-Benz hopes to have the Siri-ready A-Class cars out by this fall. B-Class, C-Class and E-Class cars should get them shortly after.
