Digital Trends Awards Uconnect Infotainment of the Year Award
Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s (FCA) highly intuitive and incredibly intelligent infotainment system, called Uconnect, was recently recognized by Digital Trends with the Infotainment of the Year Award. This technology allows users to communicate hands-free while driving. It also offers a number of entertainment and audio options, navigation, and access to wireless and satellite technology.
“Receiving this prestigious award from Digital Trends is a tribute to the team of hardworking engineers, designers and human machine interface experts who continue to evolve the Uconnect system, features and services,” stated Joni Christensen, Head of Uconnect Marketing and Customer Experience for FCA US. “The Uconnect team’s mission is to assist drivers and help keep them focused on the road.”
Digital Trends award the Uconnect for its ease of access and use.
“No automaker has eased the learning curve for all the digital features of a new car better than FCA with its Uconnect system,” wrote Nick Jaynes, Automotive Editor at Digital Trends.
Jaynes added, “With Uconnect, FCA avoided the pitfalls of option overload and distilled the essentials of infotainment into one handsome, accessible package. We love Uconnect not only for its big, 8.4-inch touch screen, few hardwired buttons and responsiveness, but also for its clean, but not overly sterile, interface.”
