Suzuki Auto South Africa has upgraded the infotainment systems on the flagship GLX versions of its Ignis and Baleno, with the latest-generation Smartphone Linkage Display Audio (SLDA) arrangement offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
The upgraded seven-inch touchscreen-based system is now standard equipment on the GLX models, and can be controlled via voice command, steering wheel-mounted buttons or the screen itself.
This larger display also functions as the monitor for the reversing camera, which is now standard on GLX models in the Ignis and Baleno ranges.
Suzuki Auto SA says it has also included the MirrorLink system to allow users of other smartphone makes to mirror their home screens on the display as well. Of course, the SLDA system also features Bluetooth connectivity and comes with an additional SD card slot, too.
A quick look at Suzuki's latest price list shows the inclusion of the SLDA system adds R3 000 to the total of each derivative.
