Infotainment systems are expensive. Even rolled into the average new car payment and spread out over four or five years, you're still talking about some serious cash. And if we're honest, most buyers that can drop that kind of coin generally don't care about deep smartphone integration. But young people do. And that's where the latest MyLink system from Chevy comes in.

Set to be fitted to the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS and higher-spec Spark models, the new, low-cost MyLink system integrates a seven-inch LG-sourced capacitive display into the dash and can connect with either iPhones or Android devices with a USB cable or Bluetooth.

Phone and address book integration is built in, but more importantly, users can stream Pandora and Stitcher radio through the system, as well as play videos and photo slideshows. OnStar handles navigation duties and reps tell us that more third party apps are on the way.

GM isn't saying how much the system will cost when it hits both models later this year, but something well below $500 would be a smart place to start. From the images we've seen, it's easily one of the most attractive interfaces on the market and we're hoping to get some hands on time with it tonight.
