Both CarPlay and Android Auto support connecting an iPhone or Android-powered smartphone in the vehicle - making it even easier to access mobile apps.

"Where else to introduce the most technologically advanced midsize sedan, the 2016 Accord, than in Silicon Valley," said John Mendel, EVP of automotive division at American Honda Motor. "Customers want their vehicles to be more intelligently integrated with their smartphone-powered lives, and we are committed to delivering that experience starting with Accord, retail car buyers' most popular vehicle the past two years."

The adoption of Android Auto and CarPlay creates a new battleground for Google and Apple - and it's an important one, as more automakers embrace connected features.
