Fiat is among the car manufacturers that offer Apple CarPlay on their latest vehicles and has released a new commercial to show how this service would help drivers while they’re at the wheel.
The 30-second spot features a young woman at the steering wheel of a Fiat 500X entering a garage, where there’s also a drum kit. Thanks to the RearView camera, she manages to stop just in time while going in reverse, without touching the instruments. When Siri informs her that she got a text from Steve and reads it loud, she keeps going in reverse, hitting the drum kit.
The ad also highlights that Apple CarPlay for iPhone offers access to 45 million songs ad free and handsfree texting. The song playing in the background is the 2018 single “Liberated” by Detroit rapper and songstress DeJ Loaf, featuring Leon Bridges, from her upcoming album “Liberated”, set to be released later this year.
The Uconnect 4 system provided by the Italian automotive company includes, besides Apple CarPlay support and Android Auto, a full-color 7-inch touchscreen, integrated voice-command and hands-free calling, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, and available SiriusXM Satellite Radio with one year of service included. The available Uconnect 4 NAV includes all these same features plus GPS Navigation with 3-D graphics and SiriusXM Satellite Radio with one year of service included.
