Hyundai plans to roll out Apple CarPlay by the end of the first quarter, said Hyundai spokesman Jim Trainor. The technology was originally slated to debut in 2014. The Sonata midsize sedan will be the first model in the automaker's lineup to support CarPlay.
In addition to CarPlay, Hyundai has designed its smartphone interface to support Android Auto, said Michael Evanoff, the automaker’s manager of product planning. Both systems mirror the look and feel of a driver's smartphone on the car's dashboard screen.
