Mazda announces it will add CarPlay to vehicles, but doesn’t set timeline

Mazda has announced it will add CarPlay to its car and SUV lineup, but hasn’t made its timeline for doing so official, Cars.com reports. The company made the announcement during the launch of its 2017 CX-5, but included no details on which cars will be the first to get the new feature. Mazda spokesperson Jacob Brown did add that once the feature is released, it “should be retroactively upgradeable onto all Mazda Connect systems with a potentially minimal hardware addition needed,” meaning that at least some current Mazda owners will be able to add the technology once it’s released. Toyota is now one of the final holdouts refusing to integrate CarPlay into its vehicles.
