ok so i was doing some research and i dont know if any of the previous posts mentioned this as well but, the mazda3's have the mazda connect and i saw a youtube video about it and it looks freaking awesome. well at least way better than the 6.

i thought the 6 was at a higher tier than the 3.

what is going on.

The new 6 came out before the new 3. The 3 benefits from a newer design. The 6 is closer to the CX-5 (which came out before the 6).

This is good information. Does the 2015 6's have the Mazda Connect unit as well? Just wondering either way, but I will pass this information along to the attorney.

My 2015 Touring has the same head unit as the 2014. There is no option for Mazda Connect.

My gut says they will probably put a version of it in the 2016's, what with CarPlay and the Android Auto stuff coming. As always, here's to hoping it will be just a unit swap. (But I am not holding my breath)

no 2015 does not. just as HooliganS3 said, i did more research and im told the 2015 6's are the same as the 2014.

and just as Killick said, i read an article saying that the 2016 will come with the infotainment system the 3 currently has.
http://www.autonews.com/article/2014...emplate=mobile
i dont know how credible this article is though but 2 years in time usually equal to lots of interior changes and minor exterior changes.

i am also hoping that its a head unit swap but the article said that the center console will all be new

That would be amazing if A.) it works well, and B.) it would be a potential direct swap for those of us with 2014/15 6's.

Probably cost prohibitive seeing how OEM HUs, especially with touch and Navi, are usually well over $1,000 though.

I am betting they rework the dash on the 2016 Mazda6 to look like the current Mazda3 with the "Tablet" sticking up in the middle. That would allow them to use the same head unit in all of the 2016s (the new MX-5 has the screen).

Looking at the dash on my 2015, it wouldn't be that hard to change the top half to be more like the 3 while leaving the bottom half the same.

You upgrade your phone then have issues with the NB1 but put the blame on the NB1 instead?...makes sense.
