I agree, that limitation within Android Auto is annoying. There is an update/visual overhaul coming to Android Auto in the near future, so I'm hoping they expand the options within Google Play Music then.
My workaround to this in AA is the google assistant. I use it within AA to play specific tracks/albums/artists by giving it a voice command. It won't replace the scroll/browse feature, but at least I can get what I want playing quickly.
