    1. Hi Dave,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Yes, we can confirm that these are standard across all grades.

      Thanks.

  1. Hello we received our new Toyota Corolla Touring Sports on 8 June. Everything seems fine except the exgtremely low volume of the rear set of speakers. When the fader is set fully to R it sounds comparably low to that of Front. Checked with another same but hatchmback model available with the dealer and it sounded ok. Could you please show the Wattage of the Front and Rear speakers of this model please. This is Corolla Touring Icon Tech. Thanks

    1. Hi Raj,

      Thanks for getting in touch. If you could please provide a registration, we will be able to assist you further.

      Thanks.

        1. Hi Raj,

          Yes, if you reply with your registration to this thread we will not publish the comment.

          Thanks.

  2. Is anybody else having trouble with the sat nav/audio system on their new Corolla? After less than a week the sat nav on mine went into a loop of starting, getting to map load and then restarting all over again. All the while accompanied by a very annoying beep whenever it restarted which was about every thirty seconds. I eventually managed to stop the beep but had to cover the screen with a duster the loop was so annoying.

    My local dealer has so far been unable to fix the problem mainly due to Toyota GB refusing to accept that a new unit is needed and insisting on trying umpteen software repairs. None of which have worked. Car is currently going back later on today for another attempt at repair. After which I am afraid I will invoke the sale of goods act and ask for a new replacement car or my money refunded. Toyota Customer relations are a waste of time as they never return phone calls and the email I eventually got did not make any sense as they had obviously totally misunderstood my complaint.

    1. Hi Ian,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We are very sorry to hear that you are experiencing these issues. We will liaise with the Customer Relations team today in regards to this case and ensure that it is investigated.

      Thanks.

      1. Unfortunately the same fault has recurred. I am now in the process of rejecting the car. This is proving somewhat difficult as all of a sudden none of the senior personel at the dealership I purchased the car from is available or contactable. They obviously do not possess mobile telephones like 99% of the rest of the population do.

        1. Hi there,

          We are very sorry to hear that you are still experiencing these issues. Having just liaised with our Customer Relations team, we understand that you are currently in contact with your Centre. Please let us know if you do not get this issue resolved and we will try to assist you further.

          Thanks.

  3. Hello,

    I’ve seen advertising for the Touring Sports showing the vehicle with 18″ alloys on it. I understand they are not standard even with the high spec but is it possible to have these as a dealer fitted option? they are not visible as an option online when configuring the vehicle to order.

    Regards,

    1. Hi Andy,

      Thanks for getting in touch. 18″ alloy wheels are not available for the Touring Sports and cannot be added as a dealer fitted option. The Touring Sports comes with 17″ alloy wheels as standard.

      Thanks.

      1. Hi, I have my Corolla Touring Sports Excel on order and would have preferred the 18 inch alloys on it, like in many of the pictures online (including at the top of this page!).

        Could you let me know why the 18 inch alloys aren’t available on the Touring Sports? They clearly fit the car so I’m not clear why they aren’t selectable as an option.

        Thanks!

        1. Thanks getting in touch, Mark. The Corollas pictured above in this blog are European specification Corollas and differ from U.K. specification Corollas. At the time of the release of this blog in November 2018, we unfortunately did not have picture assets of Corolla in right hand drive and U.K. specification. Due to the supply of larger wheels we can’t offer them on every model.

          In saying that we do look forward to delivering your Corolla Touring Sports. Thanks.

  4. Hello again,
    We collected our new Toyota Corolla hatchback 2 litre Excel with a panoramic sunroof on the third of June.

    I think that it’s important to let you know we had a reply from you dated April 25 at 09.12 telling me that our car comes with a space saver spare wheel it didn’t.

    Upon contacting customer relations they informed us this is due to the overall weight increase of the vehicle if both were present. As you can imagine, this weight increase would affect the efficiency of the vehicle and MPG that we wish to achieve.

    I am certain that you would like to correct this wrong information.

    Another question please, Could you advise me when closing the bonnet do I drop or close it with hand pressure?

    On many previous cars that we have owned the bonnet always closed when dropped, our Corolla bonnet doesn’t, is this correct?

    Thank you.
    George Tutheridge

    1. Hi George,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We are very sorry for this inaccurate information that you were given and for any inconvenience this may have caused.

      With regards to the bonnet, yes, it is correct that it needs to be closed with hand pressure and cannot be closed by dropping it alone.

      Thanks.

  5. Hello.

    I’m looking to order a Corolla Touring Sport 2.0 Excel with JBL and the pan roof for my next company whip, one thing (spec) I cannot find is the power tailgate. Does the Excel version have a powered tailgate? Any European reviews show power opening/closing tailgates.

    Regards

    Scott

    1. Hi Scott,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The UK spec Corolla does not have a power tailgate. We hope this helps.

      Thanks.

  6. Your new Corrola is fitted with mediocre infotainment Touch system.

    As long you are not going to change it to provide people with acessibility to Googla and Apple systems – canr will be always the last choice for anybody considering to use it for the busines but also for anybody really using Google Auto or Apple system!

    I do not understand why are you so stubborn to go with something so bad?

    Please learn from Nokia, Blackberry and other who ignored Anroind and iOS supeririority in the past.

    For me, in the current state your Corrola is a NO.

    Cannot have company car not supplying standarised connection.

    And please, do not copy and paste your standard answe to this ussue I saw about 50 times on your blog. Unles you can tell me that in next 6 months you will rectify this issue 🙂

  7. Hello, We ordered the new Toyota Corolla Touring Sports in first week of March’19. We were told the latest date of arrival was 21 May but this morning when contacted the dealer we were told its going to be Mid June. This is very bad as we have already agreed sale of present car relying on the ‘latest’ date given by the dealer.

    1. Hi Raj,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you’ve ordered the new Corolla. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused. This delay is due to extremely high demand of the Corolla Hybrid. If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team regarding this, you can find their details via the following link:

      https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/

      For any further updates on your car, your local Toyota Centre are in the best position to assist. Again, we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused you.

      Thanks.

  8. Looking to purchase Excel Sports Tourer, disappointed that no apple play but understand that can play music via Bluetooth. Is it possible to have 2 devices connected at the same time 1 for music and 1 for telephone us?

    1. Hi Paul,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you are interested in the new Corolla.

      It is only possible to have one phone connected via bluetooth at a timne.

      Apple CarPlay is something that we are currently working on and is coming, however we have no specific timelines to reveal. Please keep an eye on our blogs and social channels for further updates.

      Thanks.

  9. We ordered our new Toyota 2.0 litre Excel hatchback with a panoramic roof on the 9th of March and it’s due for delivery in the second week of May

    Could you please confirm the following items.

    1: Will the car come with the latest MM17 connectivity?

    2: Will the car arrive with a printed owners handbook/servicing schedule?

    3: Is the Excel supplied with a spare wheel?

    Yours faithfully
    George Tutheridge

    1. Hello George,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you will be driving the new Corolla!

      We can confirm that the car comes with MM17 with Go Navigation and Voice Activation and a space saver spare wheel.

      The vehicle should also come with a printed owners manual. Alternatively though, you can also locate an owners manual here: https://www.toyota.co.uk/tme#/my-toyota/eManual.

      We wish you many happy miles in your new car. Thanks.

  10. Just about to order mine. If Toyota implement apple play/android function will existing owners be able to upgrade the software? And if so will there be a charge?

    1. Hello Taz,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you’ll be ordering the new Corolla! We are currently working on these functions, but have no timelines or further details to reveal at this time. Please keep an eye on our blogs and social channels for the latest news.

      Thanks.

  11. Can you tell me what speed the Corolla Touring Sports 2.0ltr Hybrid can do using EV mode? And for how long before the fuel takes over. . . Thanks.

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The maximum speed on full electric mode is 74 mph. The vehicle will come in and out of fuel and electric mode and this depends on a number of different factors such as battery charge, weather conditions, journey length, throttle position and others. There is no fixed period of time that the vehicle remains in EV mode.

      Thanks.

  12. I have just picked up my 2.0 L Corolla Excel Touring sport
    And I,am having trouble setting up my multimedia system
    When I enter setup and look for system information its not there only software information which doesn’t have any codes
    Can you please help
    Regards Mikeb

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thank you for getting in touch and congratulations on your new Corolla! We are very sorry to hear that you are experiencing some issues. We would advise for you to contact our Multimedia Team, as they will be able to assist you further. You can find their contact details via the following link:

      https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/.

      Thanks.

  13. It says in the specification that the new Corolla has built in WiFi does that apply to UK versions.and if so how does it work.

  14. I am getting frustrated with Toyota Gb I ordered my Corolla touring sport on 28th January was told delivery would be 28th March then it was put back to 2nd April then 30th March then on the day before delivery I was told the car was delivered to the wrong place so it would hopefully be ready for Sunday it cost me £58 to change my insurance over to Saturday but as I won’t be getting the car I’m not sure if I can legally drive my old car. I have no confidence in Toyota anymore and I’m seriously thinking of cancelling my order I don’t blame Jemca Enfield they can’t do anything about it until they get the car.
    Very disappointed with Toyota .

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Customer service is extremely important to us, so we are very sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your experience with Toyota. We would advise for you to contact our Customer Relations team, as they will be able to look into this and assist you further. You can find their contact details via this link:

      https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/.

      Thanks.

    2. I took delivery at 12.00 today it was well worth the wait. Only problem now is no owners hand book and no service book when I pointed this out the salesman said none of the cars in showroom had any books in them that’s how they come out the factory. When do you intend to rectify this.

  15. Why are TOYOTA hybrids 1.8L engines? why not have 1.0L or 1.2L.
    If Audi can make a 1.0L A3 then surely TOYOTA can make a 1.0L HYBRID. Also why are LEXUS also 1.8L hybrid? and why isnt there a saloon/sedan PRIUS or COROLLA HYBRID (WITH SMALL ICE ENGINE) OR EVEN ALL ELECTRIC? Looks like only choice now is HYUNDAI IONIQ.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The hybrid system in our vehicles is more suited for larger engines, with increased torque at lower revs. We also recognise that with a bigger engine, there is better fuel consumption. In terms of a saloon/sedan, you may be interested in looking at our Corolla Saloon here:https://www.toyota.co.uk/new-cars/corolla-saloon/.

      Thanks.

  16. Hi there. I have ordered my 2 ltr sport touring excel. There are three things that are sadly missing. Head up display, blind spot monitor and electric tail gate. All of which was available when show cased at motor shows. This is possibly so why isn’t it available ?

    1. Hi Andy,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Congratulations on ordering your new Corolla Touring Sports! It may be the case that the UK specification was not shown at the Motor Show you attended. We value our customer feedback so we will ensure that this is passed on to our Product team.

      Thanks.

    2. Yes. I was disappointed to find that no heads up display on the UK model as well. What about wireless charging for phone? Is that in the UK Excel model?
      And Toyota, come on, give more details as to why these items are missing in UK only??
      Thanks

  17. Hi, I have been told by Toyota in Shrewsbury that the Corolla Exel touring comes standard with a pan roof. My company have ordered the car for me but I have seen online that the roof is not standard. Could you explain please

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The panoramic roof is available as an option for both the Design and Excel grade, it is not available as standard. We hope this helps, please let us know if you have any more questions.

      Thanks.

  18. Can you help me on the 2.0L excel touring sport is the 12 volt battery mounted under the bonnet or in the boot
    Regards Michael b

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The Touring Sports doesn’t come with 18″ alloy wheels as standard due to manufacturing supply.

      Thanks.

      1. Can you elaborate? Due to the fact that almost all of the posters/advertising I’ve seen for the Touring Sports shows the vechive with 18″ on?

      1. Saw this blog with interest. I have ordered a corolla sports tourer excel to be delivered in April. The dealers (Vantage Toyota Morecambe) say there is no spare wheel included. What is the correct answer? John Taylor.

        1. Hi John,

          Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you’ll soon be driving the new Corolla. Would you please be able to specify whether you have ordered the 1.8L or the 2.0L engine?

          Thanks.

          1. Hi John,

            We apologise for any inconsistencies in the information you have received. We can confirm that your Corolla Touring Sports 2.0L excel grade will come with a spare wheel. We will ensure that this is reviewed accordingly with the network to make sure they are up to date with all the latest information.

            Thanks.

  19. Ordered a Corolla 1.8 hybrid design last Saturday.very impressed by it driving characteristics.Just as a matter of interest my Auris hybrid is rated at 136bhp and the Corolla is rated as being less powerful at 122bhp, yet the Corolla feels more powerful could somebody explain out of pure interest in auto engineering.

    1. Hi Peter,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to see your interest in the new Corolla.

      In regards to your comparison between the Auris and the new Corolla, this is because calibration has been improved to firstly provide faster response using more battery assist while the combustion engine remains at lower revolutions. Secondly, when accelerator pedal is pressed for a longer time, the combustion engine revolution will increase in a linear way, in line with the vehicle speed increase. This results in clearly improved connection between pedal input and acceleration.

      We hope this helps.

  20. Hi can you help me, I brought a Corolla Excel 2.0 L touring sport on the 28/1/19
    Today I had a test in a 1.8 hatchback it was a fantastic experience but when I asked the lady at Jemca Enfield if she had news on delivery she said she had no idea as Toyota UK has not indicated when will be the first delivery’s can be expected she said it might not be until 21/3/19 can you throw some light on this subject
    Regards Michael b

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch and congratulations on ordering your new Corolla. Customer deliveries will begin from 1st March, unfortunately, we cannot provide any further update on this. Your local Toyota Centre should be able to provide you with a more accurate date nearer the time so we would recommend regularly checking with them.

      Thanks.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you’ve ordered the new Corolla! The car doesn’t have wireless phone charging, however it features Bluetooth phone connectivity and USB/AUX connectivity.

      Thanks.

  21. I’m very interested in this car. A hybrid estate with a decent amount of pace and good-looking too. It’s top of my my list to test when it’s change time in 2 years.

    1. Hi Jonathan,

      Thanks for getting in touch and for your interest in the Corolla. Yes, the Touring Sport Design grade is available with 1.8l Hybrid engine and the Opening Panoramic Roof.

      We hope this helps.

      1. Thank you for that reply. Could also confirm what colours we are going to get in the UK, and is there anywhere i can view them.

        1. The new Corolla is available in eight body colours, including:
          Pure White, Pearl White, Tyrol Silver, Eclipse Black, Scarlet Flare, Manhattan Grey, Sterling Silver and Denim Blue.

          Selected Excel Hatchback models can also be specified with a bi-tone finish consisting of a black roof, pillars and door mirror casings.

          With regards to viewing the colours, we would advise for you to contact your local Toyota Centre.

          Thanks.

          1. That’s great to hear, Jonathan! We wish you many happy miles in your new Corolla.

            Thanks.

      2. Hi again, my Dealer in Norwich (SLM) are saying its not an option on the order form. Can you confirm that the Panoramic Roof is available on the Touring Sport Desgn 1.8l Hybrid. also is there anyone they can contact to confirm this.
        Thank you for your assistance.

        1. Hi Jonathan,

          We apologise for our delay in responding and for the lack of consistency in the information you have been given. Product specification is subject to change and unfortunately, due to manufacturing restrictions, the pan roof is only available on the 2.0l for the Touring Sports. Again, we are very sorry for the lack of consistency in the information you’ve received. Please let us know if you have any other queries regarding this.

          Thanks.

          1. That’s great to hear Jonathon, Congratulations on ordering your new Corolla and we wish you many happy miles with it in the future.

            Thanks.

  22. Similar sentiment here. I’ve a test drive booked for Friday, but I’ll be cancelling it. Lack of connectivity is a complete deal breaker.

    1. I had a look at the Corolla Design and Excel at my local dealership and was impressed with the interior and main features. But despite all of the high tech stuff I would not be interested without Android Auto and no doubt Apple users feel the same about Apple i-Play. I mean what other new cars don’t have it?

      1. Hi Dave,

        Thanks for getting in touch. We value all customer feedback so we will ensure that this is passed on to our Product Team.

        Thanks.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for your interest in the new Corolla. The engine in the 1.8 and 2.0 Hybrid Corolla is e-CVT automatic.

      We hope this helps.

  23. Where can I find the dimensions please? (Corolla hatchback hybrid icon tech).Especially the overall length….

  24. Hi, instead of me being angry about a brand new 2019 Corolla Still using the Touch 2 Multimedia system – Please can you tell me what Toyota cars being released in 2019 will have Apple car play ! – as it stands i will be trading in my Yaris for a KIA Hybrid as i have had 3 years of the Touch 2 system and it is the slowest useless out of date software i have come across that has twitter … TWITTER ! why !! Thanks..

    1. Hi Mel,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, we do not have any information available about Apple car play in any of our new models. The Corolla will be equipped with Multimedia 17 (MM17) which has faster navigation, a more responsive screen and shorter booting time.

      Thanks.

        1. Hi Mel,

          MM17 has a new interface, faster response and new features such as customisable home screen, multi-touch: pinch, drag and zoom, and Speed limit on Multimedia mirrors Road Sign Assist. We would recommend experiencing the vehicle and MM17 for yourself when demonstrators arrive in your local Toyota Centres from this week onwards.

          Thanks.

          1. Hi, I have just been to see the new Corolla, and 2 things I have noticed.. 1, you can’t seem to change the nav on the home screen.. so it has to load this up every time and this slows up boot time, 2, it now has Miracast and Mirrorlink included.. 2 programs that are for Android phones only ! What about iPhone connections ?? Thanks Mel

          2. Hi Mel,

            Thanks for getting in touch. The new Toyota Corolla features Bluetooth phone connectivity and USB/AUX connectivity which is suitable for iPhone connection. It also features MM17 with Go Navigation and Voice Activation.

            We hope this helps.

  25. Hello, I am interested in the Corolla Touring Sport Design 2.0 and particularly like the colour of the one that is pictured on the Toyota Web site and the brochure. Can you confirm whether it is Sterling Silver or Tyrol Silver. Also can you confirm that the car is supplied with a spare wheel.

    Many thanks

    1. Hi Donald,

      Thanks for getting in touch, it’s great to hear that you are interested in the Corolla. The colour is sterling silver, and yes, the car is supplied with a spare wheel.

      We hope this helps.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Paddle shift on the steering wheel is not available on the 1.8l hybrid engine, however is available on the 2.0l hybrid engine.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great to hear that you are interested in the Corolla Touring Sports. Whether a Spare Wheel or Tyre Repair Kit is provided is dependent on a couple of factors. Do you have a particular grade and engine in mind?

      Thanks.

        1. Hi Michael.

          We can confirm that this grade comes with a Tyre Repair Kit, however, you would be able to purchase a spare wheel kit via your local Toyota Centre.

          Thanks.

  26. On the new corolla what is the point of electric parking brake and hold brake surely the outcome is the same

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The hold brake allows you to take your feet off the brake pedal and can only be used whilst the car is running, for example when waiting at traffic lights. The electric parking brake, however, can also be used when the car isn’t running, for example when parking over night on a gradient.

      We hope this helps.

  27. does the new Corolla in the UK have a head up display, as shown when the car was announced, and at what grades?

      1. I am sitting in jemca dealership
        And they say the UK car does not have head up display or electric tail gate who is right

          1. Yesterday I payed £31.500 for Corolla 2.0L touring sports only to find that it not have electric tail gate
            I can’t understand why, come on guys there is still time to change your mind to give the people what they want. Ps I think the car will be a good seller can’t wait to take delivery

          2. Hi Michael,

            Thanks for getting in touch and congratulations on the ordering of your new Corolla! We do appreciate any feedback so we will ensure that this is passed on to our product team.

            Thanks.

  28. I’ve been looking on you tube at the touring sport Corolla and it says something about sos button
    will it be available on the Uk version and how does it work

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thank you for getting in touch. As standard on all grades, the vehicle features airbag sensors that register an accident and the car then makes a no-cost 999 emergency call. Drivers and passengers can also make the call by pushing a button.

      Thanks.

    1. Hi Alan,

      Thanks for getting in touch and we are very sorry for the delay in response. We will be back to you as soon as possible.

      Thanks.

    2. Hi Alan, TRK refers to Tyre Repair Kit. This option can be taken over spare wheel to maximise luggage capacity. We hope this helps.

  29. Can you elect to have 16 inch wheels on all the ” higher end” cars. With the state of our roads large wheels/ thin tyres make for a very hard ride.

    1. Hi Graham,

      Thank you for these comments. Customer feedback is very important to us and so we will pass this on to our Product Team.

      Thanks.

    2. This is another big one here in the UK with our pot holed roads. Why do manufacturers think we always want bigger wheels with higher spec cars?

  30. Hi, is there no Smart Key as standard so no touch entry unless Excel? Does this model not have CarPlay either? Was keen to order until I saw that! I saw it on US model?!

    1. Hi Oliver,

      Thanks for getting in touch, we can confirm that Smart Entry is only available in the Excel grade with CarPlay unavailable in this model. Whilst we cannot comment on other markets, we take all feedback into account and will continue to pass any feedback on to our Product team.

      Thanks.

  31. Why are you still persisting with the Toyota touch 2 infotainment system? Why not spend a bit of time and introduce this brand new model with Android Auto?

    1. Hi Geoffrey,

      Thank you for getting in touch. We can appreciate that there has been some negative feedback on our blogs and social channels regarding the Toyota Touch 2 Multimedia system, we pass all feedback on to our product team with the aim for future improvements.

      If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team regarding this, you can find their details as follows: https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/

      Thanks.

  32. Hallo der Elektrische Kofferraumdeckel und der Abstands Tempomat ist ab welcher Ausstattung verfügbar?
    Mfg Jakob Klotz

    1. Hello Jakob,

      Thank you for contacting us. We would advise for you to contact the Toyota in your region, as they will be able to assist you further.

      Thanks.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch and apologies for the delay in our response. We are currently liaising with our Product Team and will be back to you as soon as possible.

      Thanks.

      1. A couple of things – the US Toyota Prius has a heated steering wheel option; a Nissan Leaf has a heated steering wheel option. The latter is definitely a competitor for the Corolla.

  33. My pcp agreement expires in April 2019 on Auris hybrid.Will it be possible to have delivery of a new Corolla to coincide please.

    1. Hi Peter,

      First customer deliveries of Corolla will commence from 1st March. We recommend contacting your Toyota centre for more info. Thanks.

      1. Hi Peter,

        Thanks for your interest in the 2019 Corolla. The first wave of demonstrators will arrive at the network during the week commencing 28/01/2019. We recommend contacting out nearest dealer to register your interest, and for exact timings of colour and trims charts. Thanks.

  34. Is the “eight-speaker JBL premium sound system” only available as an optional and only for the most expensive model (Excel 2.0)???

    This is one more upsetting detail, after the lack of CarPlay, about the new Corolla.

    I guess I’ll use my Auris one more year, or I’ll move to a Nissan Leaf which, in the 30k range, offers much more than a Corolla.

    It’s a pity, I was really planning to buy a Corolla early next year.

    1. Hi Giovanni,

      That’s correct – JBL premium sounds system is only available on the highest grade vehicle. Thanks.

    2. I dont get it either, US version gets Carplay. And why on earth would it not have Android Auto…80% of the world population has android + corolla is the most sold car ever. Im suspecting that they pull the same thing that Mazda did with offering them as a retrofit at a cost.

      1. Hi Renno,

        Thank you for your comment and we are sorry to hear that you are disappointed. As previously mentioned, we will be sure to pass these comments to our Product Team.

        If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team regarding this, you can find their details as follows: https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/.

        Thanks.

      2. Both Android Auto & Apple Carplay have many privacy implication to think about by the manufactures when they decide whether to implement into their cars, something the Japanese brands take more seriously then others…..

        1. Individuals can restrict or review privacy settings from their mobile device – should they feel troubled. Clearly many owners and other manufacturers feel more concerned about providing constantly up to date navigation and mobile connectivity! – really also being a safety feature.
