Vauxhall OnStar, the personal connectivity and service assistant, has won best car tech innovation at the Parkers New Car Awards 2018.
OnStar is available across the Vauxhall range, and includes a number of safety and convenience functions to support drivers.
This includes stolen vehicle assistance, automatic crash response, destination download, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, smartphone app functionality and vehicle diagnostics.
“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,” said Parkers editor Keith Adams.
“This innovative concierge system adds a human element to car ownership – other manufacturers need to follow Vauxhall’s lead on this one.”
“We’re thrilled that Vauxhall OnStar has been recognised by Parkers,” said Mike Lee, Vauxhall’s UK Head for OnStar Strategy and Planning.
“This award shows Vauxhall is at the forefront of vehicle technology and connectivity, and joins previous awards from the likes of Auto Express and BusinessCar.”
