5 SUVs with Android Auto

The headlining must-have tech as we enter the new decade is Android Auto. Since its introduction in 2014, the system has received mixed receptions with one country’s antitrust unit actually filing a complaint case against it.

Fast-forward to 2019, many car manufacturers are fitting Android Auto in cars as standard. Did you know that the cheapest car you can get with Android Auto is the Kia Picanto?

Here are 5 SUVs that you didn’t know come complete with Android Auto:

Hyundai Tucson

Available on: All variants

Starting from RM 123,888 – monthly repayment RM 2,109*

Fun fact, Hyundai was the first brand to fully adopt the system in 2015 in all their cars, starting from the Hyundai Sonata.

So it’s not a surprised when Hyundai Sime Darby launched the facelift Tucson, it also came with a floating type 7-inch display that is capable of connecting to your phone via Android Auto.

Nissan X-Trail

Available on: All-variants

Starting from RM 133,888 – monthly repayment RM 1,387*

2019 saw the arrival of the Nissan X-Trail facelift with 4 variants to pick from. The facelift was not only Nissan’s chance to address the complains of how the car drove, but to add-on Android Auto as well.

All variants (yes, you read that right) in the line-up are now equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen.

Mitsubishi Outlander

Available on: All variants

Starting from RM 137,888 – monthly repayment RM 1,428*

Surprised? Well, the Outlander has been around since 2016 and what it has never really shouted about was the fact that the 7-inch touchscreen is also Android Auto ready.

Renault Koleos

Available on: All variants

Starting from RM 179,888 – monthly repayment RM 1,863*

Renault Koleos comes with Android Auto

Even Renault is getting ready for the new age of systems as the recently launched Koleos came equipped with Android Auto. The system is only an add-on to Renault’s tried and tested R-LINK2 that offers navigation and a comprehensive multimedia system that can be controlled via speech.

The touchscreen in the Koleos is a little different from all those listed here, as the 8.7-inch touchscreen is set in a portrait formation instead of landscape. Tesla dreams maybe?

Toyota Fortuner

Starting from RM 181,200 – monthly repayment RM 1,877*
