The Chevrolet Sonic and Spark are already pretty clever and well-connected little cars. They both feature the MyLink infotainment system that allows you to pair your phone and send and receive phone calls and text, all hands-free, as well as 4G LTE connectivity that can turn your car into its own Wi-Fi hotspot. The Sonic & Spark also have their own in-dash navigation options available through an OnStar subscription or with the Bringgo phone app. But a lot of smartphone users love their phone’s navigation app and don’t want to switch over to something new. Phone navigation loyalists will be thrilled to hear that later this year, the Chevy Spark and Sonic will offer smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Google Auto apps which will allow them to run apps from their phone right on their dashboard’s touchscreen. This feature is expected to arrive later this year, but in the meantime stop in at Phillips Chevrolet to see all that the Chevy Spark & Sonic have to offer.
