Lexus Australia confirms CarPlay/Android Auto rollout

Lexus has rolled out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across its line-up, but existing owners haven't been left in the cold. The ES mid-sized sedan and RX SUV were the first two models to get the technology in October, while the mid-sized NX SUV, range-topping LS sedan, and the RC and LC coupe line-ups have been outfitted with the system since November 1. Finally, all UX SUVs sold from December 1 onwards will have the technology. The BMW 3 Series-rivalling IS sedan misses out though, for now.

The update will be free, and should give CarPlay users a new-car feeling once connected.
