Vauxhall’s OnStars named best tech feature by Parkers.co.uk

The Parkers New Car Awards 2018 winners are revealed

Vauxhall’s OnStar connectivity system has been named best ‘best tech feature’ by Parkers.co.uk in their 2018 awards. The system was praised by the judges for it’s democratisation of technology for a mass-market audience and currently available across the Vauxhall range. OnStar offers;

  • Personalised navigation
  • Concierge service, letting you ask for directions
  • Stolen vehicle assistance
  • Automatic crash response
  • 4G wi-fi hotspot
  • Vehicle over-the-air diagnostics

Rather than relying on the conventional touchscreen tapping or button systems of normal units, OnStar allows the driver to speak directly to a call centre where someone can answer any questions or deliver sat nav directions straight to the car.

Keith Adams, Parker’s editor spoke highly of OnStar by saying, “with technology advancing at a rate of knots, our winner Vauxhall OnStar and the two commended innovations really impressed us with by how they are taking the world of cars into the future, but in a way that makes them supremely easy to live with today.” Vauxhall’s UK Head for OnStar strategy and planning went on to mention that they were thrilled that the system had been recognised by the motoring magazine.

Now is the time to get your hands on a brand new Vauxhall, with our scrappage scheme and excellent offers, take a look here and book yourself a test drive; Motorparks – Vauxhall
