Why your next car should come with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay

I plugged my phone via USB into the Civic, went through a few confirmation screens on my phone and started Android Auto itself.

The Proton Iriz was conceived back in 2014 as Proton’s effort to counter the ever-popular Perodua Myvi. Back then, the Iriz offered considerably more safety equipment than the Perodua Myvi, but response from the market remained lukewarm at best. Proton updated the Iriz a couple of times, with the latest update being introduced earlier this year. Five variants are available in total, up from the four variants from the 2017 update.

Sony is not going to build cars which is why it built the Sony Vision S concept car

If you grew up in the 1990’s Sony wasn’t just “that company that makes PlayStations”. Sony was that rich kid who brought every imaginable gadget to school. They built radios, televisions, cameras, computers, phones, its own compact disc format, and even owned Michael Jackson. If that wasn’t enough, the Japanese giant revealed its first car earlier this year, the Sony Vision S.
