Here are the vehicles and receivers with Apple CarPlay announced in 2018-2019

Once an expensive niche option — and still that way, in some cases — CarPlay is becoming increasingly common on new cars, trucks, and SUVs, as well as aftermarket receivers. Here's a roundup of the introductions in 2018 and 2019, the latest being support in new Toyota trucks and SUVs.


Feb. 7

Toyota 2020 Sequoia CarPlay

In advance of the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota has announced that 2020 models of the Tacoma, Tundra, Sequoia, and 4Runner will all have Apple CarPlay as a standard feature.

The only practical difference between trim levels will be screen size, Toyota indicated. The 2020 Tacoma for instance will come with a 7-inch screen by default, but people paying extra for an SR5 trim or better will get an 8-inch display. The same is true for drivers opting for TRD Pro trims of the Tundra, Sequoia, and 4Runner.

Pricing and launch dates aren't yet ready, and the company hasn't said whether any models will support wireless CarPlay. That's unlikely though, since the feature is still rare industry-wide, and the only planned Toyota compatibility is in the 2020 Supra.

Volkswagen is meanwhile planning to add wireless CarPlay to the 2020 Passat, though it's unknown if the technology will make it to U.S. models.

2020 Toyota Supra

The 2020 Toyota Supra, coming in the first half of 2019, will not only be the first Supra sold in the U.S. in over 20 years, but a rare example of native wireless CarPlay. Buyers will have to spring for the $53,990 Premium trim, but this also includes an 8.8-inch touchscreen, 12-speaker JBL sound, and wireless phone charging.

Kia has separately announced the 2020 Telluride SUV, with wired CarPlay but on an optional 10.25-inch touchscreen. Fiat Chrysler is going even bigger, putting CarPlay on a 12-inch touchscreen for the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty. Neither Kia nor Fiat Chrysler have shared pricing or launch dates.

Mazda CarPlay

Mazda is offering dealer-installed CarPlay upgrades for some U.S. vehicles from the 2014 model year onwards, the main requirement being a Mazda Connect dash interface. The option costs $199, but also adds a 2.1-amp USB port and Android Auto support.

CarPlay and Android Auto will be natively supported in U.S. Mazda6 models built from this month on, an exception being the Sport trim. Other Mazda vehicles with native support include 2019 CX-5 and CX-9 models.

Sept. 26

2019 Range Rover PHEV

Jaguar and Land Rover have announced that beginning with the 2019 model year, all vehicles with InControl Touch Pro or Touch Pro Duo interfaces will support an optional connectivity package including CarPlay and Android Auto. New car buyers will have to pay $280 or more depending on the model and trim, but current U.S. owners will eventually be able to get a retroactive update, one which is already available to some drivers in the U.K.

Sept. 5

Acura 2019 ILX

Acura on Wednesday announced the 2019 ILX, its first version of the sedan with CarPlay, as well as Android Auto. Drivers will interact through an "enhanced" 7-inch capacitive touchscreen. The vehicle should reach dealerships in October.

Toyota meanwhile confirmed that CarPlay is a standard feature in the 2019 Toyota Camry.

2019 Toyota Sienna

Via its website, Toyota has indeed confirmed that the 2019 Sienna minivan will have Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa. It should come standard on LE, SE, and XLE trims, which have a 7-inch touchscreen.

Sony has meanwhile announced the XAV-AX210, a new 6.4-inch aftermarket receiver that supports CarPlay and Android Auto. It's actually an update of a 2017 model, the main new feature being support for iDatalink Maestro, an audio system that bridges wheels controls, amp functions, and onscreen car settings - but only when outside of CarPlay. Pricing and a North American release date will be revealed sometime this fall.

2019 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo

In announcing U.S. pricing for the 2019 Sentra, now available, Nissan revealed that people will have to pay for the SV trim ($19,090) or higher to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard. The base S trim starts at $17,790.

The approach is similar to that for other Nissan vehicles such as the 2018 Leaf. CarPlay is de facto on the Leaf SV or SL for example, but completely unavailable on the cheaper Leaf S. This is the first year the Sentra has had CarPlay.

Aug. 13

Toyota's burgeoning CarPlay lineup will soon include the 2019 Camry and Sienna, according to car shopping site CarsDirect. The information hasn't been announced publicly, but was uncovered by analysis of order guides. Interestingly, the vehicles may also support Amazon Alexa but not Android Auto, even though people will initially need an Android phone to make Alexa work. Alexa support for iPhone users is slated for early 2019.

Aug. 7


September's Mazda CX-9 will begin at $32,280, but only have CarPlay standard in the Touring trim ($35,330) and above. That does also get owners an 8-inch screen, an upgrade from 7 inches on the base Sport.

July 31

Mazda CarPlay

Mazda said that as of September, people with a 2018 Mazda6 sedan will be able to get a free dealer-installed CarPlay upgrade, but only if they paid for a Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, or Signature trim. Those trims will get the technology pre-installed as of November.

May 25


CarPlay is coming to the Subaru WRX for the first time in 2019 models, launching soon. The technology will generally come standard, but on a 6.5-inch screen with the base trim ($28,080), and 7 inches with the Premium ($30,380) and STI ($37,480). Limited ($32,680) buyers will have to pick CarPlay as an upgrade.

May 24


Pioneer's new AVH-W4400NEX and AVH-W8400NEX receivers each support wireless CarPlay, still a rare commodity. The former ($699.99) has a 7-inch resistive touchscreen, while the latter ($1,199.99) switches to a capacitive screen, making it more responsive.

Apr. 25


The 2019 ES will be the first Lexus with CarPlay, and ship in September. Models without onboard navigation will get an 8-inch display, but people who pay extra for the navigation package will get a whopping 12.3-inch display, bigger than most iPads.

March 28

Perhaps following Toyota's lead, another CarPlay holdout — Mazda — revealed plans to add CarPlay to two upcoming vehicles, beginning with this summer's 2018 Mazda6. That car will only have the platform standard on Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature trims, but displayed on an 8-inch screen.

The technology should also hit the 2019 CX-9 crossover, but few details have been shared.

March 26


Honda took the wraps off the 2019 Insight, saying the hybrid sedan will arrive this summer with CarPlay support through an "available" 8-inch dash interface. Toyota's Lexus division meanwhile said that its UX compact crossover, due in December, will have CarPlay standard.


March 23


The next Toyota to get CarPlay will be this summer's 2019 Corolla Hatchback, offering the technology on an 8-inch touchscreen. Pricing hasn't been revealed.

Feb. 16


The 2019 Subaru Ascent, coming this summer, will have CarPlay on all trims, starting at $31,995. That base model will use a 6.5-inch display however, forcing people to pay for more expensive trims if they want an 8-inch screen.

Jan. 31


Acura's 2018 MDX Sport Hybrid has CarPlay standard on all trims, presented on a 7-inch capactive touchscreen. The vehicle starts at $52,100.

Jan. 16

BMW is departing from the rest of the industry and switching to a subscription model for CarPlay. Beginning next year, BMW owners will have to pay $80 per year after their first, something the automaker defends as cheaper than the current one-time $300 price, at least if they have a three- or four-year lease.

Jan. 15


In a major concession, long-time holdout Toyota has announced plans to bring CarPlay to the 2019 Avalon, along with other 2019 models such as some Lexus vehicles. The Avalon is shipping in the spring and will have CarPlay standard on all trims.

In 2015 Toyota infamously declared that it intended to stick with proprietary platforms for the foreseeable future, even as other automakers were preparing or already adding CarPlay. Apple's software began picking up traction in 2016 and is now on numerous vehicles, though availability on low-cost models remains an issue.

Jan. 11

The 2019 Honda Insight will have support for CarPlay as an add-on package, displayed on an 8-inch touchscreen. Honda is promising to ship the car later this year.

Jan. 9, 2018


At CES Alpine showed off the CarPlay-compatible iLX-F309, due in February. The $1,100 receiver is distinguished by having a "floating" 9-inch WVGA touchscreen, allowing it to fit in vehicles that might not otherwise have enough dash space.
