At long last, Toyota made the announcement today at the Chicago Auto Show that it will bring Android Auto to a handful of its vehicles.
The list of Toyota vehicles that will support Android Auto includes the following:
- 4Runner 2020
- Aygo 2018
- Sequoia 2020
- Tacoma 2020
- Tundra 2020
- Yaris (Europe Only) 2019
Toyota was rumored to have agreed with Google to bring its infotainment software to select vehicles back in September of 2018. Since then, we hadn’t heard a peep about availability.
The car manufacturer initially stayed away from both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay due to privacy concerns. Toyota partially changed its views on third-party options when it allowed CarPlay into some of its vehicles at the beginning of 2018.
With the growing popularity of Android Auto and a Toyota representative stating that there was demand for the infotainment software to be added to the company’s vehicles, it was only a matter of time before today’s announcement was made.
Android Auto is also coming to more Nissan vehicles
Additionally, Nissan announced Android Auto support for six of its 2019 vehicle models. These include the Rogue Sport, Sentra, TITAN, TITAN XD, Versa Note, and Versa Sedan. This bring’s Nissan’s number of vehicles that support Android Auto up to a round dozen.
