Apple has updated their website to note new 2017 vehicle models from car manufacturers where CarPlay is supported.
Below are the recent updates:
- Acura: 2017 NSX
- Chevy: 2017 Bolt
- Honda: 2017 Ridgeline
- Kia: 2017 Forte

Other 2017 models listed from before include Audi’s 2017 A4 and Q7; Hyundai’s 2017 Elantra; Mitsubishi’s 2017 Mirage; and Volvo’s 2017 S90.
Here’s how Apple explains their CarPlay solution:
CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them right on your car’s built-in display. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road. Just plug in your iPhone and go.
CarPlay is compatible with seven of the company’s smartphones, starting with the iPhone 5 or newer.
