2019 Tesla Model 3 Review And Features, Pros And Cons

 The all-electric Tesla Model 3 drives likes a sports sedan and has a great technology. However it has some pros and cons such as:

Pros
Fast acceleration
Great handling
Extremely low energy cost
Great tech.

Cons
Adjusting some driving controls can be distracting while driving.

Tesla Model 3 is a fantastic car. It has a great handling and smooth ride, while its acceleration is very quick.

Seats

The Model 3 is a five-person four-door sedan. The interior is spacious and comfortable, and the large glass roof lets the cabin feel airy. The Model 3 comes with standard cloth upholstery and front seats that can be manually adjusted. Upgrades include front seats that can be power-adjusted, new seat upholstery, and front and back heated seats. 
The Model 3 has two full sets of LATCH anchors in the back seat.


Cargo Space

You can hold quite a bit in the trunk of the Model 3 between its deep opening and fold-flat rear seat. The 15-cubic-foot trunk can easily manage two sets of golf clubs, and even enough space for a bike is available with seats folded. An additional storage area up front (where usually a gasoline engine is located) is sufficiently large for a carry-on suitcase.

Tesla Model 3 infotainment system

Tesla opts for an unconventional path for interior controls and screens. A single 15-inch touch screen mounted in the center of the dash shows driver data–such as how quickly you drive–and is used to make almost every interior change, from sound volume to cruise control settings. The advantage is that switches, displays, or physical buttons do not clutter the cockpit. The downside is that to make even minor changes, including adjusting the windshield wiper frequency, the driver has to divert attention from the route. Several professional reviewers say that keeping track of the pace of the car can be difficult, and they regret the absence of a head-up display. In addition, Tesla does not offer any kind of integration of smartphones. However, bluetooth is still available.


Tesla Model 3 Performance

Telsla Model 3 is a fast car. Acceleration from the electric motors is immediate, and the near-silent power delivery makes it feel like you're flying in a small space ship, not an earth-bound aircraft. This Tesla isn't as good as a Model S, but depending on the trim level, you can still reach 60 mph in 3.2 to 5.6 seconds.

Mileage

Compared to most luxury small cars, driving the all-electric Model 3 will save you a bundle of fuel costs. For example, the Model 3 saves the average driver about $1,200 each year compared to the typical fuel costs of a BMW 330i. Standard Range Model 3's have an estimated 240-mile range, while Long Range and Performance trims are estimated to go 310-mile at full charge.

All Model 3's are equipped to use Tesla Supercharger stations, although the car does not include free supercharging. Such stations provide 150-170 miles of range for each half-hour of charging, according to Tesla. The EPA reports that a 240-volt home charging station can fully recharge the battery in about 8.5 to 10 hours.

Features

Tesla version 10.0 
This new software update can be installed via smatphone app.

Netflix and Youtube 
The new software update brings Netflix and Youtube for you to watch. Naturally, its not safe watching and driving so Tesla doesn't allow you to, unless you're not driving.

Smart Summon
Smart Summon was a feature for the app in v9 which would let you move the car in or out a parking space while you were out of the car. What's new in version 10 is that the car will actually drive to you so you don't have to walk for it. For this you'll need a full self-driving or Autopilot Enhanced.

Easter eggs and games
Tesla is known for the selection of easter eggs. There is already the surface of Mars in the navigation system. Version 9 added a collection of Atari video games controlled by scrolling buttons on the steering wheel. The games include Asteroids, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, and Centipede. Version 10 brings CupHead, but in order to be able to play it, you'll need a USB controller.

Car-aoke
Yes, caraoke. The new version 10 bring car-aoke with highlighted lyrics of caraoke version of classic tracks.

"I'm feeling lucky"
Tesla has added a "I'm feeling lucky" option. This will find something interesting that you might want to visit. There's also a "I'm feeling hungry" option which allows you to get direction to a nearby restaurant.
