Just a few days before the Los Angeles Auto Show opens to the public, many automakers have debuted new vehicles compatible with Apple's CarPlay system, providing hands-free access to Maps, Messages, Phone, Music, and select third-party apps.

We've confirmed that CarPlay is available either as a standard option or as an upgrade in the following 2018 and 2019 vehicle makes and models:

  • 2018 BMW i3

  • 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo

  • 2018 Hyundai Kona

  • 2018 Jeep Wrangler

  • 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

  • 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

  • 2019 Audi A8

  • 2019 Genesis G70

  • 2019 Kia Sorento

  • 2019 Lincoln MKC

  • 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

  • 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS

  • 2019 Porsche Cayenne

  • 2019 Subaru Ascent

  • 2019 Volvo XC40

It's likely that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line and 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 also support CarPlay.

CarPlay is now available in hundreds of vehicle models around the world, but there are still a few notable absentees at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2018 Mazda6, for example, will not support CarPlay at launch. "As a company we continue to look into implementing CarPlay into future Mazda vehicles," a Mazda spokesperson told MacRumors today.

The company behind Jaguar, Land Rover, and Range Rover is also showing off several vehicles at the auto show, but none of them are compatible with CarPlay. "The technology is on the way soon," a Jaguar-Land Rover spokesperson told MacRumors today.

Other CarPlay-less vehicles include the 2019 Lexus RX L and 2019 Infiniti QX50. Lexus parent company Toyota is the biggest automaker to not support CarPlay.

A recent survey indicated that an increasing number of customers consider CarPlay a must-have feature, so it may only be a matter of time before some of those automakers holding out on Apple's technology reverse course.

Yuck.
UI was designed by a part time intern that wandered in every morning after rolling all night long.

I've had CarPlay for 2 years now in my VW and it is great. The only thing I do not like is how the album artwork is displayed. It is blurred behind the text and is usually so blurred you cant tell what it is. Just get rid of it and put the nice clean text on a black screen. Or make the album artwork normal res and smaller someplace else. Its pointless how it is now.

Do any of these cars have a pad to set your iPhone on for inductive charging which then also wirelessly connect to CarPlay? That’s the ultimate

Have only used CarPlay for about a month now in my 2018 Honda Civic, but now I can’t imagine not having it! So convenient.

Not an exaggeration to say this is a must-have feature going forward.
