These days, our phones are a huge part of our lives, like it or not. And one of the least important things they seem to do is calling. But given all that we do use them for, battery life is essential. 

If you are on the road, it’s good to know you have a way to keep your phone charged. Mazda understands this, and is rolling out some new 2020 models that have wireless charging included in the model packaging.

2020 Mazda3 Wireless Charging

The 2020 Mazda3, similar to last year, will have a wireless charging pad available as an option. Using the pad to charge your phone couldn’t be easier. You simply need to place your Qi-enabled smartphone on the charging pad. Once the green light turns on, you are officially charging.  

While charging, the phone can stay in that position until it obtains full charge. The pad itself is also great, as it has ample area for any type of smartphone. Gone are the days of resting your phone in the cup holder with the Mazda charging pad.  

2020 Mazda CX-30 Wireless Charging

Similar to the Mazda3, the new 2020 Mazda CX-30 has been fitted with the option of a wireless charging pad. This new Mazda has also been fit with a lot of technology that is sure to make it a big hit well into 2020 and beyond. This includes an in-car Wi-Fi system that is a first for the brand.  

Given the technology included on the vehicle, and its appeal as a small SUV, we’re expecting big things from the CX-30, and have already seen great interest here at Royal South Mazda.  

For more questions on Mazda wireless charging options, or anything Mazda related, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the professionals here at the dealership. Or, stop by and give one of our new rides a test drive.
