Some interesting comments:
Even though a recent University of Utah study found Siri and other speech-to-text technologies could still be a “cognitive distraction” while behind the wheel – especially if they’re unintuitive or inaccurate – many automakers will be adopting CarPlay as a safer and convenient way to be informed, in touch and entertained while on the go.

Formerly “iOS in the Car,” Apple’s CarPlay was designed to be a better way to access your iPhone in your vehicle.
I didn't know it 'formerly' was called anything?

Auto makers are also optimistic about CarPlay.

Miles Johnson, Manager of Connected Care Publicity at Hyundai Motor America, says CarPlay solves three problems that are currently “plaguing the car industry.”

“The first is Bluetooth pairing, because your car isn’t updated as fast as the technology in smartphones,” explains Johnson. “Therefore, your car can’t always support new devices out there. CarPlay and Android Auto solves this because it’s plug-and-play with a USB cable.”

“Voice recognition is a second advantage, as Siri and Google are much more robust and accurate than what auto makers have attempted to do on their own,” says Johnson, who also cites big costs in developing a hands-free infotainment solution on your own or with a partner (e.g. Ford and Microsoft, on SYNC).

Finally, Johnson says CarPlay’s familiar apps and touchscreen controls are “key” to its success. “Let’s face it, Apple nails the interface,” he said. “A person touches their phone 150 times a day, so when a car can offer the same layout – it’s more comfortable, intuitive and cuts down on driver distraction.”

Hyundai will be among the first automakers to offer both Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto inside its vehicles, beginning this year.
