Others can correct me here if I have this wrong but 2016 was the year when AA was first incorporated into the Optima models for the UK market.

I think that cars built in the first two quarters of that year were delivered without AA but at some point, possibly Q3 and certainly Q4 cars were AA-equipped.

My own model registered in November 2016 had AA but Apple CarPlay was not present until an update in the Spring of 2017, (£25).

Whether pre AA-equipped models can be retro-fitted with the means to provide it, I really don't know but if it's possible, I'd guess it would be prohibitively expensive.

This link to a thread covering that very issue in 2016 relates:
