Alpine Introduces 2nd Generation Alpine Style Systems With Apple CarPlay

Published On November 9, 2017 | News

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.
