Hello,there are 2 ways to do that
first Buy android HeadUnit and install spotify also your HU must connect to internet through wifi hotspot or 3G dongle.
second way (better way) is to Use HU that support android Auto or iPhone Car Play in this solution you use your phone internet and app.

Spotify usability is all up to your phone and how you connect it to the car's audio. Saeed's suggestions require you to replace the head unit with something that syncs with your phone.

The cheap and easy way is to just connect the phone by cable and run Spotify. You said you have the stock audio system so do you have a USB or audio port input in the car?

Rockford Fosgate units without the navigation have Bluetooth Audio and this works very well with Spotify in my experience.

I do have usb
But when i place the cable in the error is USB unsupported.
It might only be for charging?

My phone has no issue in my wife's car via bluetooth.
for the Kizashi i think changing the head unit is the only option, as cables don't seem to work.
Thanks to the members whom have commented, much appreciated.

Perhaps the USB port is damaged. Does it offer any power for recharging devices?
I think Bluetooth Audio streaming was only offered for the Rockford Fosgate system without navigation as a factory-installed unit.

I don't think the usb is damaged as it still seems to charge the phone. Pretty slow

I think maybe the cars exported to Australia didn't come with the abilty to play music.

I have found a different solution i just plug in a blue tooth speaker. Not ideal
But its ok to listen to podcasts.
