2017 Forte5 Will Be Kia's First Apple CarPlay And Android Auto Supported Vehicle
Here are some more details of the Forte5...
The Forte5 will come in three trim levels LX, EX, and SX. The features mentioned below may not be available on all trims.
- Inspired by the all-new 2016 Optima (front grille)
- Projector beam headlights
- Remote keyless entry
- LED daytime running lights and taillights
- Leather seats and Heated front seats
- UVO eServices (EX and SX trims)
Kia's UVO infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Which means the softwares will be available only on the EX and SX trims. The entry-level LX won't support the same.
CarPlay and Android Auto will be displayed on a 7-inch color touchscreen.
Availability of support for CarPlay and Android Auto is unknown at this time. Kia says "late availability" in its press release.
Apple has listed the Forte5 as the only Kia vehicle on the CarPlay supported car list on its website.
