Toyota’s implementation of Apple CarPlay

Multiple automakers including Lincoln, Cadillac, Mazda, Toyota, Nissan, and Hyundai announced the addition of Apple CarPlay support in new vehicles at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

The show, which opens to the public Saturday at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, is the oldest auto show in the country. The first was held in 1900.

Apple CarPlay is an in-vehicle touch-based display interface that functions as an extension of a driver’s iPhone.

Virtually every car manufacturer offers select vehicles that support CarPlay, including Acura, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Citroën, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Jeep, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Skoda, VW, and Volvo.

New models with CarPlay being shown at the Javits Center include the Lincoln
Corsair, Cadillac CT5, Toyota Highlander, Jaguar XE, Mazda CX-5 diesel, Subaru Outback, and Hyundai Venue.

Toyota was a long-time CarPlay holdout, and first supported the platform in the 2019 Avalon.
