Buyers of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra will be able to get the vehicle with support for Apple CarPlay when it goes on sale later in January. CarPlay will be supported on the Elantra's seven-inch Display Audio touchscreen system, along with Hyundai's eight-inch touchscreen navigation system that provides access to smartphone apps, voice texting and more.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra will also support CarPlay's Siri-powered "Eyes Free" mode so drives can use voice commands for things like making calls, playing music, reading back text messages, using Maps and more. Here's what else owners of the car can expect:

  • Pandora integration
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio with enhanced features
  • Pause, back and play for current station
  • Automatic recording of top six presets
  • SiriusXM Travel Link
  • Sports scores and schedules, stock ticker, movie times, fuel prices and weather/alerts
  • Advanced voice recognition
  • Multi-touch screen that supports swipe and wipe gestures
  • New home screen with multiple functions

Hyundai has not announced any prices for these features, but it's likely that they will be offered as optional packages. The car maker plans to reveal which of its future vehicles will support CarPlay later in 2016. It will also reveal how current owners of Hyundai cars that have support for its fourth-generation navigation system or Display Audio can update them to add CarPlay.
