Great question! If you're shopping around the New Orleans area for a vehicle with prime connectivity, look no further. Between 2017, 2018, and 2019 Kia cars and SUVs, we are sure to have something with the connectivity you need.
In 2019, our dealership anticipates that every 2019 Kia model will have at least one trim option available with Apple CarPlay features. We know that the 2019 Kia Forte will come with Apple CarPlay availability, which is already a win for the previous model years. We gather this based on the 2018 models, where even the Rio and Rio 5-Door made Apple CarPlay available.
