2015 Toyota People Mover Has A Mic That Shouts All The Way To The Back Seat

Toyota realises that few customers shopping for a minivan care about horsepower or 0-100 times — they’re basically looking for the easiest way to haul kids. So on its 2015 Sienna, the North American successor to the Tarago, Toyota is introducing a rather clever new feature called Driver Easy Speak that amplifies the driver’s voice with a dedicated mic so that they don’t have to turn around while talking (yelling) to passengers (kids).

Holden Volt Australian Review: The Four-Wheeled Future Goes Electric

Confession time: I have never been the biggest fan of Holden, Ford or any other car that competes in a V8 supercar race. That sort of thing is all just a bit brash for my tastes.
