The fourth-generation Mazda3 made its premier in late 2018 and it appears the perfect timing for an updated version. Deviating from what is seen by its competitors, the Zoom-Zoom organization usually shies away from sprawling mid-cycle improvements. Demonstrated this week in Japan, the bourgeois hatchback and sedan set now has a fresh paint job as well as various tech upgrades inside the car.

Previously 8.8-inches, the screen has been increased to 10.25 inches and comes equipped with backlit USB-C ports. Further, you can just forget about bringing your smartphone cords, as the automobile features a convenient wireless charging pad.

In other news, Mazda has employed strengthened safety measures by introducing an Inattentive Notice System. If a driver loses focus, the system will sound an auditory signal and provide a warning message on the visual display. Furthermore, the Mazda3 has increased its capability to detect any obstructions present further ahead, which now includes people.
