2018 Mazda6 Offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto


The 2018 Mazda6 is already one of the most innovative, tech-savvy midsize sedans in the automotive industry. Now, it looks like this sedan is about to get even more so.

Mazda recently announced that 2018 Mazda6 models that have the Touring trim or above will receive a dealer-installed upgrade at no extra cost – and will gain Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone capability.

This new technology will allow Mazda6 owners to integrate their smartphones directly into the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system. It mirrors your smartphone’s user interface, allowing you to access some of your favorite apps right on your car’s touchscreen display.

These upgrades are beginning in September. If you have a Mazda6 Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, or Signature model and would like to have this service performed, all you have to do is contact us here at Mazda of Bedford to set up an appointment. It should only take two service hours.

Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ aren’t the only new technologies that you will receive with this upgrade. You will also get a more powerful, faster-charging USB port and the most updated version of the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system.

The Mazda6 will be the first Mazda vehicle in North America to give consumers the innovative Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ technology through dealership installation.
