Nearly every manufacturer of vehicles affordable to the average person has implemented Android Auto into their infotainment systems. There has been one holdout, Toyota who, while promising they were adding it. have never gotten around to actually doing it.
Last September Toyota announced that they would be adding Android Auto to their cars as soon as October but did not provide any further details. At the Chicago Auto Show yesterday they detailed which vehicles would be receiving Android Auto compatibility.
- 4Runner 2020-
- Aygo 2018-
- Sequoia 2020-
- Tacoma 2020-
- Tundra 2020-
- Yaris (Europe Only) 2019-
Most of the cars are upcoming models and there is no word whether it will be possible to upgrade older models to the new system. There is no word whether Android Auto will make it to our shores but we expect it to once it rolls out to more cars.
If you own a relatively recent Toyota why not ask at your local dealership and send a message to their head office: let them know you want Android Auto in your car — afterall Toyota’s in-car infotainment system is woeful.
