And, because it’s getting to be the time of the year when people are calling, texting and emailing our product experts to ask about the release date for the 2021 Mazda CX-5. We have recently found out that the vehicle will officially go on sale in September 2020.

Does the 2021 Mazda CX-5 come with Wi-Fi?

Most of the changes that will be found with the 2021 Mazda CX-5 will be centered around the connectivity technology available to owners of the vehicle. For the new model year, the entry-level trim, Sport, will now be available with a 10.25-inch touchscreen that will control the latest generation of the Mazda Connect infotainment system.

This also means that a 2021 Mazda CX-5 Sport will have access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications.

The real story to the changes made to the 2021 Mazda CX-5 is that it will help drivers and passengers connect to the outside world in a whole new way. Each 2021 Mazda CX-5 trim grade will be equipped with an in-vehicle 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, provided by AT&T.

We don’t have a lot of details about this system just yet, but other automakers using this technology have made it possible for several devices to use the hotspot simultaneously.
