Enjoy Google's Android Auto In The 2015 Hyundai Sonata [Video]

Hyundai Motors has beaten everyone in the race to deliver a built-in Android Auto infotainment system. The 2015 Sonata offers the feature (at an additional price, of course).

How does Android Auto work in an OEM system? To get the answer to that question, watch the video below from Android Authority, that did a full Android Auto review in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata a few months back.

To use Android Auto, you will need a compatible Android smartphone running Android 5.0 Lollipop or later.

The 2015 Sonata starts at $21,150 (sedan, not the Hybrid version). But the entry level trim will not get you Android Auto. To get Android Auto you will have to buy the Sports version which is priced at $23,250, and then upgrade the standard package to a tech package for an additional $1,750. This puts the price at $25,000 (ex-showroom).

If you have that kind of dough lying around, go ahead and splurge. The 2015 Sonata offers variety of nice features. Or, you can go out and buy an aftermarket head unit which offers Android Auto (Pioneer or Kenwood) for around $500, and get the latest technology in the car you already own. You won't get the new car smell though, but that isn't something a $5 air-freshener couldn't fix.

Anyways, here's the 2015 Hyundai Sonata review from Android Authority...
