Android Auto is on a roll this month when it comes to manufacturer partnerships. Yesterday we brought news that Citroen had added support for the platform on 6 of its vehicles. Not to be outdone by its fellow French carmaker, Peugeot has also announced compatibility for 9 of its 2017 models. The good news doesn't stop there either, as luxury brand DS is also going to follow suit with 2 of its cars.
These brands may not be well known in the US, but they're all part of Groupe PSA which is headquartered in Paris, France. Along with its other brands Opel and Vauxhall, they make up the second largest automaker in Europe, so this continuing support for Android Auto is great news for plenty of European drivers.
Below is the list of 9 Peugeot cars that now support Android Auto:
- 2017 208
- 2017 2008
- 2017 301
- 2017 3008
- 2017 508
- 2017 508 SW
- 2017 5008
- 2017 Expert
- 2017 Traveller
And here are the 2 DS cars that will soon be compatible:
