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.
