Already available on the diminutive Spark and Sonic, Chevrolet is making Apple's Siri Eyes Free software available on a wider range of its models.

The intelligent assistance software, popular with Apple device users and part of Chevrolet's MyLink software on its two smallest models, will now be available on the 2014 Camaro, Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, SS and Volt.

Siri will allow MyLink users to perform a number of useful tasks without having to take their eyes off the road. Among Siri's tasks in MyLink is the ability to make hands-free, voice-activated calls to iPhone contacts, play songs from their iTunes library (and switch between radio and their music library), listen to, compose and send text or iMessages to their contacts, and access their calendar to make appointments.

The 'Eyes Free' mode means Siri's functions can be handled entirely with voice commands, without the iPhone's screen lighting up. Once paired with the MyLink system via Bluetooth, Eyes Free sessions can be started and ended via the voice activation button located on the steering wheel. Equipped models also come with six months of OnStar's premium 'Directions and Connections' service.

The service is compatible with iPhones running iOS 6 or 7, on iPhones 4S and later featuring Siri.
