Vauxhall Adam gains R4.0 IntelliLink and OnStar
Recently added to the Corsa line-up too, the new technologies now also provide the Adam with infotainment technology including smartphone integration and the OnStar personal connectivity and service assistant.
The latest-generation R4.0 IntelliLink system infotainment technology brings an overview similar to a smartphone menu and a choice of navigation including Apple Maps and Google Maps. IntelliLink R4.0 is available for £495 as part of the Technical Pack, which also includes parking sensors.
In addition, Vauxhall’s OnStar provides personal connectivity and a service assistant while also becoming a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven mobile devices, even when abroad – with no additional roaming fees.
Services available on OnStar include Automatic Crash Response, 24-hour Roadside and Stolen Vehicle Assistance and Vehicle Diagnostics. The myVauxhall smartphone-app allows Vauxhall OnStar users to request help when away from the car, to open or close the car remotely or to access important vehicle data.
The hardware for OnStar is free with Adam Slam, S and Rocks models while use of the Wi-Fi Hotspot is free of charge with all variants for the first 12 months following registration. This means private phone accounts are not charged, because those who connect their smartphones to OnStar enjoy free navigation.
“The Vauxhall Adam in all its variants is the perfect example of how much individuality and technology can be packed into a small car. And with the new smartphone-compatible IntelliLink system and Vauxhall OnStar, we boost our successful lifestyle city car onto a higher level,” said Stuart Harris, Vauxhall’s head of car line brand.
