Subaru is the latest automaker to announce a new vehicle connectivity and infotainment system, joining the likes of BMW, Ford, General Motors and Mercedes-Benz, which have been offering such systems for years.  

Subaru’s new system is called Starlink and it made its official debut this week at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Designed to meet the growing connectivity needs of drivers, as well as to simplify and reduce overall cabin complexity, Starlink combines a number of features and is likely to utilize a touch-screen interface as well as voice activation.

Subaru hasn’t divulged many details but said Starlink will debut on the 2014 Forester and filter across to other models by summer, 2013. Note, Starlink will only be available on those models equipped with navigation.  

Two features announced for Starlink so far include Harman International’s Aha online service, which provides access to numerous services including CBS’ Radio.com; Facebook and Twitter; as well as Subaru’s own EyeSight safety feature.

Combining safety and convenience features, Subaru’s EyeSight driver-assist system is one of the most affordable technologies of its type available. Relying on camera and radio monitoring systems, EyeSight integrates adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, pre-collision throttle management, and vehicle lane departure and sway warning. It can even bring a vehicle traveling at up to 19 mph to a complete stop if it detects a crash is imminent.
