What Honda models have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto?
Today vehicles are more technologically advanced than ever before. From Wi-Fi to rear-seat entertainment, the modern car has virtually everything but the kitchen sink. Not only do these high-tech features in vehicles today make everyday driving extraordinary, but it also adds another level of functionality. Honda is an innovator in the auto industry and this year debuted one of the first high-production vehicles to be equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This sporty new sedan was none other than the 2016 Honda Accord. With that said, what other Honda models have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto?
What is Apple CarPlay?
Before we dive into what specific Honda models come equipped with the technology, let’s take a closer look at just what Apple CarPlay is. At the most basic level, the technology enables the vehicle’s radio to be the display and controller for an iPhone or other compatible Apple device. The technology is specifically created for use in the vehicle and allows users to get directions, make calls, receive and send messages, listen to music and so much more. Android Auto works in a very similar way, but is for Android capable phones and devices only.
Honda models with Apple CarPlay
Currently, the only Honda vehicles equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is the 2016 Civic and 2016 Accord. When the 2016 Honda Accord debuted earlier this year it was one of the first on the market to come equipped with the technologies. Shortly after, Honda debuted the 2016 Civic, which is also available with these premium features. So just what Honda models come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto? Both technologies are standard on:
2016 Honda Accord EX and EX-L
2016 Honda Civic EX, EX-T, EX-L and Touring
We anticipate the technologies will likely be offered on new Honda models going forward. While we could talk about Apple CarPlay and Android Auto all day, it’s another thing to experience these technologies in person. We encourage you to experience both with a test drive today!
