CD Player/Infotainment in the 2020 Toyota Corolla
We know, we know; you’ve spent years building an extensive CD collection, and you enjoy listening to them in your automobile. You’re even probably in the habit of getting books on CD and listening to them on long drives. It’s just so straightforward. It’s what you’re used to. You want it to continue in your next car.
But those pesky automakers keep getting in the way. They’re trying to push all this new audio tech on buyers, but that requires subscriptions, and smartphones, and figuring out yet another new thing. Can the 2020 Toyota Corolla please just have a CD player?
No, the 2020 Toyota Corolla does not come with a CD player. 2020 is the first year that Toyota is blessing this model with standard Apple CarPlay compatibility, and they’re celebrating by “yeeting” (as the young folks would say) the CD player.
What can I do if I want a CD player in my 2020 Toyota Corolla?
Corolla fans who remain big compact-disc-aficionados have a few options: they can opt for a Toyota Corolla from a past model year that still retained a CD player (which was in there all the way up to at least 2018), but that means they miss out on all the latest touches and additions that were thrown in for this fully redesigned latest model.
They could simply get a 2020 Corolla, which would include all the latest amenities, but would force them to evolve to the newer systems of imbibing music. Finally, they could go for a different model entirely, searching out a new car that does indeed possess a CD player. Oh, and an aftermarket CD player for the 2020 Corolla may be an option as well.
