The Best Car Phone Mounts by Make and Model in 2022
Dive into this article to find the best phone mount for some of the most popular sedans on the market today, according to make and model.
Finding a reliable location to mount your smartphones can be tricky for any sedan, but this can be especially true with newer models given the way dashboard designs have evolved over the last few years. Some mounts you find on the market are not only bulky, they actually block visibility, which ultimately does more harm than good.
Great news - we’ve just put together our list of the best phone mount to use for some of the most popular cars in 2022, and we've included a photo collection of the perfect spots to place your phone mount for maximum use and optimal visibility.
Note: This list is not exhaustive! We will continue updating this list as more information becomes available but if you have any phone mount recommendations for sedans, please let us know in the comments section below!

The Car Phone Mounts
For cars with MagSafe®-compatible smartphones
Apple aims to solve the added alignment challenge that comes with wireless charging with MagSafe®, a set of small magnets embedded in every iPhone beginning with the iPhone 12 lineup. These magnets help phones to align perfectly on charging docks and other MagSafe-compatible accessories, such as this Magnetic Suction Mount by Rokform, for faster, more reliable wireless charging. You can read more about the Pros and Cons of Wireless Charging in a previously written Rokform article.

Rokform Low Pro Dash Phone Mount
The beauty of the Low Pro mount is its versatility. Since it is less than an inch wide, you are sure to find multiple spots inside your car where you can mount your phone.
Low Pro Mount Features:
- Small size, powerful hold – Less than 1” wide with 15 lb. Pull for the ultimate grip
- Super grip with easy install – 3M adhesive backing mounts to any flat surface

Phone mount for BMW 330i M Sport
If you have a BMW 300 series, the Vent Mount is the perfect phone mount for you. As seen in photos above of the BMW 330i M Sport, the BMW 300 series features wide center air vents that are perfect for the Rokform Vent Mount. For maximum air flow, your phone is best viewed in portrait, although the mount will also work in landscape.
Phone mount for BMW M4
Use the Vent Mount to mount your phone inside of your M4! Just like the BMW 330i, BMW’s M4 has wide center air vents. We’d encourage you to stick to the Vent Mount (over the Swivel or Low Pro) because there isn’t a ton of open space on this sleek dashboard.
Phone mount for Chevy Malibu
Low Pro Mount
The latest Chevy Malibu models place Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system in the center of the car’s dash. The space on the sides of the infotainment screen are perfect for the Low Pro Mount. There’s enough space on both sides that you can even install a mount on each side. Just check out the photos above for a glimpse of the perfect hands-free setup in your Malibu.
Phone mount for Dodge Challenger
The Dodge Challenger has long air vents that work great with the Vent Mount. Pro tip: install the mount on the top air vent slat for the strongest hold!
Alternatively, open space around the center air vents and navigation system make the Low Pro Mount is also a good option for Challenger owners.
Phone mount for Dodge Dart
If we didn’t know better, we’d say the Dodge Dart’s dashboard was designed with all of the Rokform phone mounts in mind! With air vents that are both long and wide, open space between its features, and a smooth, unobstructed dash, the Dodge Dart really has the perfect interior for secure phone mounting.
Pictured above is a 2018 Dodge Dart with a Vent Mount. The huge vents make it easy to mount your phone in both portrait and landscape.
Phone mount for Hyundai Elantra
If you have a new Hyundai Elantra, we recommend purchasing the Vent Mount. It installs onto the vent slats easily for safe, hands-free phone access without having your air vents blocked off. Our recommendation is to place your mount on one of the top slats.
Phone mount for Mercedes CLA 250
Compared to the rest of the sedans we’ve been featuring, the Mercedes CLA 250 has one of the most unique dashboards out there. Luckily, its cool dashboard is also super Rokform-mount-friendly. Use the Vent Mount for quick and secure mounting. There’s lots of open space on the CLA dash, making the Low Pro mount a great alternative car phone mount.
Phone mount for Mercedes E350
If you own a Mercedes E350, we recommend using the Vent Mount. The larger air vents give you flexibility when installing your phone mount. The top of the dashboard is flat and smooth, making the Swivel Mount a good secondary option for mounting.
Phone mount for Tesla Model S
We are big fans of the Swivel Mount inside of the Tesla Model S. The Low Pro Mount is another phone mounting option that’s easy to install on the Model S. However, the Low Pro lacks the adjustability that is built into the Swivel Mount.
There’s also plenty of space next to the touchscreen display system for doubling up with a Rokform mount for both the driver and the passenger.
Phone mount for Toyota Camry
The new Toyota Camry’s air vents are on the shorter side, but because they are super wide, they are still great for the Vent Mount. Secure your phone in portrait or landscape mode and enjoy the ride!
