Cars should be able to connect to the hotspot that your phone provides and use the data through your phone rather than having their own costly service plan and using obsolete connection technology 3 years after leaving the showroom floor.
This would seem like the obvious choice, but as someone who has owned multiple android head units that require you to hotspot your phone, it gets pretty annoying.

In reality Android Auto, and Carplaynare basically the answer for this, as they let you use the phone data, for media/maps etc.

It is just sad that this will be the future, since they linit functionality, vs what a creative car company could come up with if they had a guarantee of 100% perpetual data connection.
