  • AutoGuide.com delivering 110% wrong information and misleading the people. He doesn't even have any right kind of idea about what are the best and top-ranked infotainment systems provided by automobile manufacturers.


  • "in 2019, this list helped me decide for the best car navigation *scafe.shop/bcn2019?Jw* hope it helps you out too!"

  • MBUX?!???

  • These are terrible for older drivers but great for younger drivers. Screw the 50 million licensed American drivers over 60 right?? Lol.

  • Has anyone forgot about Honda’s infotainment? The one in the new accord, pilot, and oddesey?

  • Why do you sound like Linus Tech Tips

  • Honda’s is one of the best and you don’t even include it?? Wth

  • Subaru’s system is easy af to use. Weird list...

  • Odd that nobody mentions VW. I really like their take on infotainment compared to others ive tested

  • Mercedes old comand was awful it's like they took a pipboy and crammed it into a dashboard

  • Volvo is the best

  • tbh i hate the chevy mylink

  • gotta love the windows 98 graphics on ford and gm

  • I have an Acura MDX and the infotainment system on that car is so bad. I'm not even complaining because of the typical over complicated stuff or anything, but the system is just so laggy it's a burden to use. Sound is always delayed by 3 seconds than what it should be and the system freezes up on me all the time.

  • My 12" screen on my Ram limited is beast

  • First off the volvo sensus connect is a great system! Second the button you were pushing it shows up on the HUD. So stop spreading false news or else we will have to call you the next Donald Trump!

  • How about mini connect?

  • Yes. Losers are definitely Toyota/Lexus. I would add chevy mylink as well. But one the worst looking system i think is Mazda connect.

  • I was really disappointed to not have the Acura RDX 2018 with many great reviews by third parties not discussed. Let alone the pricing is so much for the money! If I missed it, by all means my apologies. Happy New Years!

  • Every single infotainment from lexury to economy cars pales miserably compare to your iPhones or galaxy phone.

  • Test drove the new Lincoln Navigator... compared to all these, that one is miles advanced and intuitive! I do like Porches' and I think the U Connect on Challenger's and Jeep Grand Cherokee's have the best/easiest layouts and UI

  • in this video, when speak about chevrolet my link, the video most, the old generation, the new my link, of 7 inch is korean too, (byom 2), lg is the company, for my opinion, is very basic, no have mirrorlink, and functionality is only control of function the car, but no have, information about enterteniment, work over linux, qnx, this sistem equipament all line, of car in latin american, onix, prisma, cobalt, spin, tracker, cruze, and malibu, beat. what are you oppinion about this system? thank.

  • No mention of Honda infotainment systems. Maybe because they’re boring and only 4 vehicles (Accord, Odyssey, Pilot, and 2019 Insight) have the updated software. The remaining vehicles have the outdated system with the Ridgeline and Clarity having the oldest.

  • iDrive is lovely, imho. That said, it used to be terrible

  • Where is VW?

  • what about Land Rover's new infotainment system in the Range Rover Sport

  • I drive is the best system in the market. Period

  • Gosh... Can the presenter be anymore annoying? Why the hell is this nasal mouse reading lines that he didn't even write?

  • i wonder why is it forbidden to use a phone when driving, and then you are allowed to use a 12" screen

  • Tesla don't exist in this universe

  • Japanese automakers need to get it together

  • Subaru Starlink has a good navigation system in my opinion, besides that it’s extremely subpar. In the end none of that matters bc you they give you CarPlay

  • The infotainment in our 2018 outback touring is amazing. There is so much tech packed in there

  • I remember people raved about how good Remote Touch was when it first came out. Don’t really know what happened since then, since I think the interface is way better, faster and more attractive, and the controller is now improved compared to the original. I agree that it’s not the best, the one in my 2014 IS pisses me off sometimes, but it’s way better than the first generation. How come people loved the older gen, and now despise the current gen which is way more improved?

  • Mbux in the and a class and s class is the best

  • You forgot the worst of them all: HONDALINK TRASH.

  • Honda? VW?

  • *iDrive is king on this game*

  • *BMW it's not one of the bests, it is the best* *///Mforever*

  • my dad has a subaru starlink radio and works great, never had a problem

  • No Tesla or Honda? STFU Autoguide!

  • There is no surprise that the Japanese cars have the worst infotainment systems, I think it's time for the Japanese companies to wake-up and see what the customer needs, when you send more most of the time inside the car you expect high quality at least on the infotainment systems especially in 2018

  • This list is irrelevant if you can completely omit honda's infotainment system

  • Mercedes is simply the best or nothing right? Classifying them as a winner just doesn't cut it. 😂

  • Infiniti is the worst

  • So they are telling me, that the IDrive from BMW isn't good enough, because it has too much features ? Please tell me they are drunk. The Infotainment System from AUDI, Mercedes, Porsche and so on are very good, but BMWs IDrive is the best one in fact.

  • Where is Tesla?

  • Where's Tesla!!

  • Tesla best

  • Bmw by far is the best

  • Tesla UI is the best of all.

  • Audi has the best

  • TESLA...DERP...What a bunch of numpties

  • Tesla? come on. not even mentioned

  • Toyota is the worst.. I got rid of my Tacoma because of it.. oh and also cause it's a poorly made truck.

  • They have showcased the old Volvo Sensus system here (on cars before MY2017). I can confirm that the newer version (that supports Android auto/Apple CarPlay) works much better. Volvo has really solved the performance issue on this system (it will not lag after the system has warmed up) and made the UI more intuitive.

  • Mercedes` new MBUX system is also awesome. And Audis got even better with their new Touch MMI

  • 1:39 lol Norway

  • nissan/infiniti are the worst, low resolution, slow and no carplay/aa
