Most techs call the air filter the thing out under the hood, where "when it gets dirty" is a better answer than any specific mileage. I like unpaved roads, so it gets changed about every other oil change or more often.
The cabin air filter can do a lot if you have allergies, etc. and is behind the glove box.
Dunno about yours, but on the 2014 the owners manual says 24K miles.
The usual disclaimers would obviously apply as to whether you drive through herds of skunks regularly, or carry passengers with excess flatulence or only drive thru fields of perfumed flowers.
Either air filter is easy to replace, and readily available online.
The FRAM Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter comes with activated carbon and baking soda, and fits perfectly. Watch out for the little cord that holds the door for the filter, but other than that, it is a breeze to swap out.
