Volkswagen Australia has today announced their new MY16 range of vehicles will arrive with updates to the Polo, Golf, Beetle, Scirocco, Jetta and Tiguan ranges that include Android Auto.
Arriving at dealerships in the coming weeks, the new range of vehicles will include a range of updates to the entertainment and audio visual systems, including a rear-view camera on all models in the range, as well as the inclusion of App-Connect USB interface which serves as a link to Apple CarPlay, Mirrorlink and of course Android Auto.
The inclusion of the App-Connect USB interface means that Volkswagen drivers will be able to connect their smartphone and enjoy the benefits of either system on the upgraded 6.5@ Composition Media high resolution touch screen display on key models.
Volkswagen Group Australia Managing Director, John White, welcomed the arrival of the new MY16 range
Volkswagen has always stood for quality, innovation and value, and never has this been more true in the company’s history in Australia than with the arrival of our new model year vehicles.
Volkswagen is the second member of the Open Automotive Alliance to deliver a vehicle with Android Auto factory fitted, after Hyundai began using Android Auto on their 2015 Sonata in the US. Volkswagen is the first to include it on their entire range of vehicles.
The Volkswagen MY16 model range will begin to arrive in Volkswagen dealerships across the country in the coming weeks, with models available to order immediately. We’ll be definitely heading into a dealer to check out what the new vehicles have to offer.
