2016 Kia Optima: Apple CarPlay Coming Soon
by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on May 24, 2016
Earlier this month, Kia announced that Apple CarPlay will be added to the 2016 Kia Optima. That's great news if you're considering buying one, however, current owners like ourselves are not SOL. Customers who have previously purchased a '16 Optima (or '17 Sportage) with a navigation system will be "provided with a downloadable update via myuvo.com" beginning in the third quarter.
Apple CarPlay hasn't been universally loved among our editors but I've certainly appreciated its podcast, Pandora and MLB At Bat apps. Adding them to our Optima is good news indeed ? well, eventually.
