Alpine Introduces 2nd Generation Alpine Style Systems With Apple CarPlay
Alpine has announced their 2nd generation solutions for VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda vehicle owners seeking an alternative to their stock OEM radio.
The new Alpine Style systems includes a number of improvements, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, DAB+, USB, HDMI and Navigation with 3 years free map updates. There is also Spotify and Waze integration too, albeit these could either be separate interfaces outside CarPlay and/or part of Android Auto only.
The systems also display turn-by-turn navigation arrows in the driver’s display, for deeper integration and is compatible for the following vehicles:
- Volkswagen Golf VI
- Volkswagen Golf VII
- Volkswagen Polo
- Seat LEON
- Audi A4
- Audi A5
- Audi Q5
- Skoda Octavia III
Alpine Style Gen 2 is available now. No pricing available right now, but expect a similar price to their 1st generation of systems, around £1299. If any of these features are important to you, I suggest you make sure the unit is Gen 2 before your purchase from any online dealer.
