Android Auto is continuing to be adopted by car manufacturers, though some are stubbornly avoiding the new tech (we’re looking at you, Toyota). Kia and Mercedes have announced a bunch of new models that will have Android Auto support.

These are Kia’s supported models:

  • 2014 – 2016 Soul
  • 2015 Optima
  • 2015 – 2016 Optima Hybrid
  • 2015 – 2016 Optima Plug-in Hybrid
  • 2015 – 2016 Sedona
  • 2015 – 2016 Soul EV
  • 2016 Sorento
  • 2017 Forte
  • 2017 Optima Hybrid
  • 2017 Optima Plug-in Hybrid
  • 2017 Sedona
  • 2017 Soul
  • 2017 Soul EV
  • 2017 Sorento

And these are Mercedes’ supported models:

  • 2017 A-Class
  • 2017 B-Class
  • 2017 CLA Coupe
  • 2017 CLA Shooting Brake
  • 2017 GLA
  • 2017 E-Class Wagon
  • 2017 E-Class Coupe
  • 2017 E-Class Cabriolet

It’s good to see more manufacturers adopting Android Auto, and we hope this trend continues. Using your phone and its superior and constantly-updated software as a car’s entertainment center is better than the outdated software that car manufacturers throw into cars these days. And hey, even if you don’t get a new car every two years, your entertainment system will constantly get better!
