What's This?

Mazda 6 boasts of wonderful road manners, a modern and efficient powertrain and an improved automatic suspension. The quieter cabin and gorgeous looks add to the charm and the 2017 model gets G-vectoring control which is designed to reduce steering corrections.


But Mazda makers seem to feel that Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support is not necessary for their Mazda models.

The 2017 Mazda 6 has entered the market under $23 k for the base i Support variant. According to KBB a Grand Touring can crack $35 K when it is combined with a premium package of $2.5 K which includes the mpg enhancing i-ELOOP energy regeneration system.

The 2017 Mazda 6 makes a good proof that a family sedan can be exciting as well practical. Though it does not boast of high sales like its rivals, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or Ford Fusion, 2017 Mazda 6 is the most fun-to-drive mainstream sedan in the mid-size segment at a great starting price of $23 k.

The upgrades for 2017 Mazda 6 enhance the appeal of Mazda 6 including Mazda’s G-vectoring control which aims at less stress while driving. 2017 model offers only one engine and the interior is not the largest but in the midsize segment Mazda 6 remains the athlete here.

But according to Motoring Crunch, Mazda 6 will be coming without the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support which most of the automakers are providing to their customers right now. This seems odd as people want the option to sync their smartphone to their vehicle. Mazda choosing not to have this feature is definitely not a smart move done by them.

The Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support offer a convenience to most of the people and not having this system may be a deciding factor for many not having this model. This also makes this 2017 Mazda 6 model seem a little outdated in the technology though the other features offered are great!

    Automakers like Mazda & Toyota are way behind the curve on smartphone integration using Apple or Android. I wouldn’t consider a new car that does not support Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
