Holden has fulfilled its promise of adding more kit to the 2013 Cruze range, boosting the small car's appeal with a handful of new infotainment technologies.

The top-shelf Cruze SRi-V now gets satellite navigation thrown in, adding the upgrade to the car's MyLink system.

All models in the Cruze sedan and hatch range also now feature Apple's 'Siri Eyes Free' technology - allowing greater iPhone integration - along with enhanced voice control and text-to-voice capability.

“At the time of launch we promised we would add navigation back to the range-topping SRi-V model as soon as we were able. The system has been introduced to VF Commodore which enables us to put it into production for Cruze as well," Holden's Philip Brook said.

“Through the development of the MyLink system in VF Commodore, we’re also able to add Australian-tuned voice recognition across the entire line up, adding voice control functionality to the MyLink in-car entertainment system.”

The enhanced voice control system allowers drivers to select and control songs, switch between apps (Pandora, etc), listen and reply to text messages (depending on phone type), and connect to an iPhone's Siri software without touching the handset.

To activate voice control, the driver presses to push-to-talk button on the steering wheel and can state a number of commands including “navigation,” “play artist,” “dial,” “tune Pandora” or “read SMS.”

The 2013 Cruze range went on sale in Australia in March, starting at $19,490 for the manual 1.8 petrol model and topping out at $28,690 for the SRi-V 1.6 petrol turbo automatic.
