Buick launches the new IntelliLink smartphone system.

Buick is the latest automaker to make the smartphone an essential part of the driving experience.

The maker will introduce its new IntelliLink system with the launch of the compact Verano luxury car, early next year, Buick officials announced during a luncheon prior to the New York Auto Show.

The goal, says Buick sales boss Tony DiSalle, is to “offer consumers the ability to bring their smartphone into the car and have added levels of functionality almost seamlessly.”

The new technology will take commonplace Bluetooth hands-free calling systems to a new level, the maker explained, allowing a motorist to listen to customized music channels through the Pandora radio app, for example, or tune into a wide range of audio news services through Stitcher.
