Thursday 14 September 2017 | 11:10 CET | News
Spanish carmaker Seat has taken advantage of its appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show to announce further details of the deal reached with Amazon to integrate the Alexa interactive voice service in its vehicles. The Spanish company last week revealed that it will be the first European car brand to offer Alexa, starting at the end of this year with its Leon and Ateca models, to be followed by the Ibiza, Arona and the large SUV in 2018. The company said Alexa will offer drivers advanced connectivity, with Seat drivers able to use voice commands to optimise their time while in their car.
