GM has confirmed that the Chevy Sonic subcompact and the small Spark city car will be the first in its lineup to receive full Siri integration.

Siri is Apple’s voice command system, which can perform different tasks by simply asking it to. Now, using Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system, customers with iOS 6 equipped phones can use Siri to control different aspects of the vehicle.

The list of tasks that Siri can perform using voice commands includes making phone calls to contacts, controlling the car’s stereo, sending text messages that are dictated to the phone, and answering questions such as the score of sports games or the dates of national holidays. Siri will not answer complex questions that require webpages to display, because that would distract the driver.

Chevy calls the setup “eyes-free mode,” and it will be available on Sonic RS and LTZ models, as well as 1LT and 2LT Spark models by early 2013.

Thankfully Chevy went with Siri rather than their own version of it. I think using one system that's already used on a mass scale, not just in cars, and always being improved, helps.

If Chevy used their own version I doubt it will work as good as Siri, plus a lot of people are used to how Siri works.

Samsung Galaxy S Voice works with MyLink as well. I have a Galaxy Note 3 and when in S voice It will make calls, play music and you can ask it for web info. The web page is displayed on your phone not dash screen. You have to long press voice button on steering wheel to activate.
