With our lifes becoming more and more digital, car companies are trying to make life behind the wheel easier by providing us various techniques to pair our phones with the vehicle.
On such feature is Android Auto, which essentially projects your Android smartphone’s screen onto your car’s touchscreen infotainment unit. This allows you to access a lot of smartphone features, on the move. Here are 10 cars that will soon be getting Android Auto.
The Ignis will be the cheapest vehicle that will be sold from the company’s premium Nexa dealership. Initially, the Ignis will only support Apple Carplay but Suzuki is working on developing a version which will allow for Android auto to work as well.
Ford just took the wraps off the all new Ecosport earlier this week in at the LA Auto show. The main highlight of the vehicle was the fact that they had shifted from the cluttered dashboard to an all new one which housed a touch screen system that supports both Apple Car play and Andriod auto. The same is expected to be launched in India later next year.
Maruti Vitara Brezza
The Brezza became the first compact SUV to have Apple Car play when it was introduced earlier this year. When the media drives of the same happened, the company had revealed that they didn’t have compatibility for Android Auto currently and that they were working on the same. We expect the update with Andriod Auto to come soon.
Since the same unit is there on the Brezza and the Baleno, if the Brezza gets it, so will the Baleno. But the same is expected only sometime next year. Currently the Android Auto site shows that Suzuki models will soon be getting this software.
Maruti S Cross
As is the case with the rest of the Maruti’s, this one too will get the support for Android Auto soon. This could most likely happen when the facelift for the same is introduced later next year.
