The software behind entertainment systems in cars has come a long way in recent years, but let’s face it, no marque is ever going to be able to match the user friendliness of a modern smartphone. Which is exactly where Android Auto comes in.

Projecting your phone’s apps onto your vehicle’s entertainment screen is proving to be very much in demand, so much so that the number of makes and models with Android Auto has surpassed the 400 mark worldwide.

Best of all, it’s ever improving. New cars fitted with the latest Android Auto system have an ace up their sleeves - a new voice activated driving mode. Drivers can simply say the phrase “Hey Google, let’s drive”, and Android Auto will respond by opening up mapping software and your favourite apps on to your car's entertainment screen.

To help you see the wood from the trees we have highlighted some of the best cars with Android Auto, along with a full list of models on sale with the technology.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class however does not have the same level of quality you'll find in the Golf. It instead relies on a magnificent amount of technology to win you over. Top-spec cars get twin 10.3-inch screens, positioned side-by-side to create something of a wide-screen display.

The user interface is very well thought-out and includes Android Auto compaitibility. If a snazzy interior experience if right up your street then the A-Class might be the one for you.

4. Ford Mondeo


Mondeo Exterior

Latest Ford Mondeo deals from £7,995
Monthly finance from £132

Although the Mondeo is no longer available to buy new, it's still a very capable saloon that also offers a huge amount of on-board tech. Sync 3, Ford’s connectivity system which includes Andoid Auto, is a standard option on all Mondeos so it doesn't matter which model you plump for.

The Mondeo is a very sensible and comfrortable alternative to the likes of the Vauxhall Insignia or Skoda Superb, although if you're looking to buy a brand new car they both represent valid alternatives.

5. Honda NSX

Something of a joker card on this list, the Honda NSX is certainly not your every-day run-around. But it is definitely one of the fastest cars on the market with Android Auto capabilties.

Aside from that, the NSX is supercar simply crammed with technology - the interior is something comparable to a space ship. You will be sacrificing practicality though.
