AOL Autos, one of the Internet’s leading automotive research and news sites, announced Wednesday Chrysler Group’s Uconnect Access as the winner of its Technology of the Year Award at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
According to AOL Autos, the award is designed to give shoppers a clear grasp of which emerging technologies provide a positive or negative impact on the ownership experience and vehicle safety, and separates the truly significant, consumer-beneficial advancements from the hyperbole of “new and better.”
“This award aims to determine quality by how well in-car connectivity and feature controls work,” said David Kiley, editor-in-chief of AOL Autos.
