Honda on Wednesday launched the 2017 CR-V, adding another vehicle to its roster compatible with Apple's CarPlay platform.

The SUV offers both CarPlay and Android Auto on models equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen and Honda's Display Audio system. The automaker didn't immediately say which trims will have the technology as an option, or how much it might cost.

Prices for the CR-V start at $24,045, but can go up to $33,695 or more for a top-of-the-line Touring model with all-wheel drive.

Initially slow to offer CarPlay support, Honda now has several compatible models, among them 2016 and 2017 versions of the Accord and Civic. The technology is even on the Clarity, a fuel cell-powered sedan that in the U.S. is limited to California.

Globally, over 200 vehicles now offer CarPlay. The platform extends the iPhone interface to dash displays, with benefits like a simpler layout and easier Siri control.
