Hyundai USA has expanded CarPlay and Android Auto to the 2016 Azera, Veloster, Sonata Hybrid, and Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, in addition to the 2015 Azera, via a free software update available now on the MyHyundai website. The automaker has now completed the rollout of smartphone integration across its 2017 model year lineup.

Hyundai-Veloster-Azera
Hyundai customers can install the CarPlay update themselves by watching the do-it-yourself video below, or a Hyundai dealership can perform the update for an installation fee. The process can take between 1 and 4 hours to download and upload the CarPlay update, depending on your network speed, according to the company.


Azera and Veloster are first-time CarPlay vehicles, joining Hyundai's growing lineup of vehicles that support Apple's car-based software, including the 2015 Genesis Sedan, 2015 Sonata, 2016 Elantra GT, 2016 Genesis Sedan, 2016 Sonata, 2016 Tucson, 2017 Elantra, 2017 IONIQ, 2017 Santa Fe, and 2017 Santa Fe Sport.

Apple periodically updates a list of available CarPlay vehicles on its website, but it has yet to add newly-supported BMW 2 Series models.

As an editor's note for anyone curious: we have focused our CarPlay coverage on first-time vehicles. In this scenario, for example, it is the first time that Hyundai Veloster and Azera models of any year are getting CarPlay. But now that the 2016 Civic has CarPlay, for example, it can be assumed 2017-and-onward models will too, so there is less need for an article next year to avoid redundancy.

I'm happy to see Hyundai step it up when it comes to CarPlay. I enjoy it on my Hyundai Genesis ever since they did that update a couple of months go.

Lucky, my 2016 Genesis sedan didn't get the update since I have the ultimate package and they're not going to update those.
Of course the "ultimate" package wouldn't get premier offerings, who would have thought otherwise? :rolleyes:

It's a variation of Velociraptor.
A fast and agile dinosaur.
Jurassic Park, remember?
Fun little coupes with edgy styling. I used to sell them.
You're welcome.
