Chevrolet, Honda, Subaru, Hyundai, Kia, and VW Debut New CarPlay Vehicles at NY Auto Show

A number of new CarPlay-enabled vehicles are making their North American debuts ahead of the 2016 New York International Auto Show this week, including models from Chevrolet, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Subaru, and Volkswagen.

Chevrolet kickstarted the announcements last week when it introduced the 2017 Sonic as the first subcompact vehicle with CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. General Motors also introduced the 2017 Chevrolet Trax with CarPlay support last month. Both vehicles will reach dealerships by fall 2016.

Honda followed suit this week with the debut of its 2017 Civic Hatchback, available in fall 2016, and U.S. spec Clarity Fuel Cell Sedan, launching by the end of this year, both of which feature CarPlay and Android Auto. Honda already offers CarPlay in the 2016 Accord, 2016 Civic, and 2017 Ridgeline.

Hyundai today unveiled its 2017 Ioniq electric vehicle with CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, while its subsidiary Kia debuted the 2017 Cadenza with matching support for both in-dash software platforms. Hyundai did not provide a launch date for the Ioniq, while the new Cadenza will go on sale in late 2016.

New York's auto show marks the arrival of Subaru's first CarPlay vehicle in the all-new 2017 Impreza, while Volkswagen's U.S. version of the 2017 Golf Alltrack also features CarPlay and Android Auto. The new Golf model goes on sale in fall 2016, while no launch date was provided yet for the Impreza.

CarPlay is available in over 100 vehicle models worldwide from over two dozen automakers, providing hands-free or eyes-free access to common iPhone apps such as Maps, Messages, Music, Phone, and Podcasts. Apple keeps a periodically updated list of available models on its website.

Chevrolet, Kia, Hyundai, I'm surprised Apple would want to be associated with such low end cars, especially for rolling out the feature. That Honda looks terrible.

Only problem I have found with Car Play, they all use resistive touch screens. Apple really should set a standard and say capacitive only for Car Play.
Get off that high horse please

Uncanny how that sentiment could equally be applied to Apple.
