Spanish carmaker Seat has announced that it will be the first European manufacturer to integrate Amazon's Alexa interactive voice service in its vehicles. The service will be available in Seat's new Leon and Ateca models at the end of this year and its Ibiza and Arona models next year. It will initially allow drivers to find destinations, restaurants, car dealers, petrol stations and make restaurant reservations, with more skills to be added in the future. Further details of the partnership with Amazon are set to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motorshow, starting on 12 September, said Seat.
