Audio options to connect iPad 1st gen to new car radios

I have been looking at new cars and like listening to audio books when traveling. I have a 1st gen iPad and have a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable - easy to use: plug one end of the cable into the head phone jack on the iPad and one end into the Aux 3.5mm port on the new car dash. However, some new cars do not have a 3.5mm Aux port, they do have USB ports and RCA plug ports (3 holes) - most also have a 110 power plug-in.

What options, and what cables needed, could I use to connect the iPAD to the car radio?

Thank you
