audio quality - bluetooth vs cord

I'm still considering getting a used gen1 volt and saving a ton of money instead of getting a tesla model 3.

I was shocked to learn that teslas don't let you play audio through USB from your phone, only via bluetooth, since bluetooth audio quality isn't as good as USB quality.

Can gen 1 volts play audio from your phone via a plugged in USB cord, or is it only via bluetooth? And has anyone tested to see if you can hear the difference in sound quality?

Not all first generation Volts allow you to play audio through USB. For 2011 and I believe 2012 you need to use the AUX jack. Then just use the controls on your phone. That will work just fine. AFAIK wired connections are invariably better than wireless and I don't believe Bluetooth changes this. It may, however, be more convenient.
