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.
