    The Model 3 is better than the S. And I'm a Model S owner. And I love the S. It's luxurious, spacious and still leaves impressions on the road here in Australia. Everything you say is true. The functional practicallity of the 3 and it's urban driveability is superior to the S'. Let's hope they address it with the new S.

    I love our 3 since it's smaller and fits in our garage. It's smaller and more efficient. I want a model C the compact when it comes out in 2023 or 4. EVen smaller and lower cost ,great for around town.

      Depends on what speed you get and how much storage space you need. Id still go for a 3 myself, since I’m guessing the S has high mileage.

    My Model 3 is the best car I’ve ever owned by far, and it’s my 8th car in my life. It’s also my first American car so I’m proud of that! People forget, Tesla is made is USA!

    I will correct something about the sound system differences. I am speculating that the Model S was fairly new. I takes about 50 hours to break any new speaker in before it loosens up. I was disgusted about the so called premium sound system until I had actually applied my basic speaker system knowledge. Given time the speakers loosen up and they sound amazing.

    I agree with a lot of your observations. The minimalist interior look of the model 3 was my attraction. The sporty feel of the driving experience, etc. Thanks for the review.

    I’ve never seen a review where someone talked so much about the way they felt as priority over the specs. By the way 50mph on a skateboard FEELS a lot faster than 50mph in a car.

    Excellent summary. I'm in Raleigh as well. I had a loaner S for the day yesterday while they made some minor adjustments on my Model 3 at the service center. The storage capacity for moving large items is insane in the S, but the weight and agility of the 3 are superior for my daily driving experience. The technology of AP3 is so much better than the loaner AP1.

      i see where you're coming from because obviously the guy likes the model 3 better. But if you were asking me if i'd rather have the model 3 performance, or a model s long range (not going to compare it to the p100d because the price range is way different). I would no doubt take the model 3, just from all the reviews i have watched.

  • Backyard Pioneer
    Backyard Pioneer 2 months ago

    I have a Model 3 long range all wheel drive and it is by far the best vehicle I have ever driven! It And yes I too woke up to it being even better, faster and smarter once again last week! It is several levels of magnitude better than any other car i have ever been in. It has exceeded my expectations and even surprised me on several fronts. For example I had a false belief that it might be inconvenient to charge a car instead of stopping and getting gas at a "convenience" store. It is the opposite. It's so easy, saves me time, keeps me from spilling stinking, toxic gasoline on my clothes and hands and maybe most importantly I am taking money away from the industry that is pushing it's costs off on the health care industry not to mention the perennial subsides. I installed a solar array before I purchased the car and also installed a 240 volt outlet. It is so much easier and literally takes 5 seconds for 98 percent of my charges. The super charging network is also very good and the V3 super charger is going to once again change everything forever! I just, yet again took a group of old friends for a ride in it over the Easter Weekend and the "Tesla Smiles" are literally worth every penny! Oh did I mention I woke up last week and the car had 5% more peak power which is noticeably faster. The AWD is by far the best traction control system I have ever experienced 10,000 miles in I have had zero problems, no oil changes (which have taken completely out of my perennial To Do list) my garage smells way better even in way I never imagined possible. Too many upsides to list. It's not perfect but it is the closest to perfect vehicle I have ever driven hands down.

    So, for 7m30s you go on explaining all the details why you think the Model 3 is superior but, at the end of the video, you say that in the Model 3 you get 90% of a Model S.
    Question: if both costed the same, would you still prefer the Model 3???
    If not, then the video should be Model S is better, but the Model 3 is rational decision

    i have a question (and I ask it since it looks like you do comment and like comments here even now...great job!) about 3 v S (and actually maybe even about Tesla vehicles in general)
    doesnt it a bit scare you?
    I'm talking about this, lets say that you're on a highway and you're using the car's built in screen for navigating witth google maps. lets say that you check something on your screen, and it covers most of it or at least the important part - the map! doesnt it scare you a bit that you could miss an important turn because of that? or maybe that it will cover in the 3 your speed? I think that i would have been a bit nervous...IDK, maybe because I have a lisence for only a year now?
    I really like all the Tesla cars, how they look, perform, interior and gadgets, etc. but it kinda makes me nervous thinking that it would have happened to me if I drove one....so, what do you think?

      Don't own a model 3 but test drove one today. While I was there, ran into a friend who was trading in his Model 3 in for a model X because of his back. Salesman told us that the model S (because of its air suspension) can lift itself about 3 inches higher than the model 3 for easier entering/exiting if you are tall or have back issues. Hope that helps.

    I love the clutter free UX of my model 3. It is a generational transition. Kids have no interaction similar to the dials, switches and gauges of traditional cars. Some older people will struggle with this transition. Model 3 has truly next level UX, pointing to the future of "Transportation Devices".

    besides the car remembering your ride height on locations and setting it manually, is there a option that sets it depending on your speed? That would make the most sense to me, since on the highway the road is smooth and you benefit more from being lower to the ground. In the city you drive slower, don't need it as much and have more bumpy roads.

  • Zachary Homrighaus
    Zachary Homrighaus 4 months ago

    Agree with most of what you said, but the glaring error was what you said about rear visibility. The Model 3 has absolutely horrible rear visibility. You have to rely on the camera to see anything behind you... the back / trunk of the car is so high, you can't see anything out the back when reversing. When you're driving and need to see cars behind you, it's OK but if you are backing out of a parking spot, you can see squat.

    • 6 Months Later Reviews

    Yeah and if you bought at the right time the model s was only 5000 more dollars for 75D. Also the warranty on the 3 is drastically worse. The reasons the model S is right for me is because I supercharge at least 35000 miles a year. I like to wake up to billon dollar views AKA (sleep in the back) the model s fits a queen mattress in the back or full sized front door. And my family just didn't fit well in the 3 we moved up from a Prius and the 3 felt the same size. We could have bought a model x I thought it was crazy ugly and mini van like.

  • Alpha and Omega Productions

    I like the Model 3 a lot. I ended up canceling my reservation and going with the Model S, but not because I didn't like the Model 3, but because I was able to get a Certified Pre Owned Model S from Tesla for the same price as a Model 3. The space of the Model S made a big difference for me and my family size (two kids). I do have to disagree with the second screen not being a bonus. It is a huge bonus in the Model S having important information directly behind the steering wheel. You get the best of both worlds with the S. I also liked the ride of the Model 3, but the air suspension in the S makes it a nicer ride. I guess if I was single or only had 1 kid or no kids, I would go with the Model 3, but I can't say that one is better than the other. The Model 3 cupholders are better, the viewing angles to the outside are better and that's about it.

So hmm and I can get the same HP out of 3 as same for 100D top speed 155 at 0-69 3.3 but I can also do some tricks to get quicker. Lighter cars go faster. Lose stock rims and change wheel base performance and off you go. For 70K vs 100k easy choice!

    This is the classic case of, I can’t afford X, so I bought Y, so now I need to justify in my mind why Y is better than X. Except in this case, it’s I can’t afford S, so I bought 3.
    They are both really nice cars. I would say model 3 is about 70 percent as good as model s, at about 57% of the price. The model 3 is definitely the better value. As you go up in features, you go down in value. You’ll find this true of just about anything. Laptops, high end speakers, SLR cameras. To get the top of the line, you pay a premium. And for some people it’s worth the premium, and others can’t justify the price.
    Not taking anything away from the model 3, but the model S accelerates faster, has longer range, better suspension, uses higher end materials, has more space and storage, includes free supercharging, and while subjective, I think most people would say it looks better.
    The model 3 is lighter, and thus handles better, has a minimalist interior that appeals to some, has good range, charges quickly, offers great interior and storage space for its class, is a great value, and it combines all of this in an attractive package. But don’t fool yourself into believing it’s a better car.

    This comparison...DOES NOT MAKE SENSE! You are talking about S being twice as expensive then 3 That’s Model 3 RWD and S P100D! These cars are NOT in the same league. You should compare Model 3 Performance (with all options available) to Model S 75D with no options selected. This would bring Model 3 to $72,500 and Model S to $77,000. At that price 3 is much faster than S - 3.2 seconds 0-60 mph 155 mph top speed. vs 4.2 seconds 140 mph in S; 3 gets track mode - S does not; 3 has 310 miles range - S 259 miles. 3 comes with premium exterior color selection (multi-coat red or pearl white at $500 discount) - S comes Black. Gets much nicer, upgraded white interior (looks nice but not very practical). At this price, S gets cloth. 3 has better audio system - 15 speakers - S gets 12 speakers. Now... S is much roomier than 3, has more storage including hatch in the back. S also wins in the "luxury department" with air suspension, power lift gate, heated steering wheel, nicer door handles (but you sit on…. cloth) Other options which come standard on S but are not available on 3 are: HEPA air filtration (Bioweapon Defense Mode), Dynamic LED Headlight (3 are LED but stationary), wiper blades defroster and washer nozzle heaters. One last thing, at $77,000 S does NOT get enhanced auto pilot which to me negates the purpose of buying TESLA. Adding that option brings S to $82,000 which is almost 10K more than 3. Note that 72.5K Model 3 gets free superchargers too. Now, ask yourself which car is more appealing to you. Model S “Base” or fully loaded Performance Model 3.

    Cost of ownership is in fact far lower than half for the Model 3 once you include insurance, getting parts, repair bills, scheduled maintenance, etc. Model S is in need of some major upgrades next year...as is the Model X. Good video.

    Model 3 performance for $70K or Model S 75D inventory for $77.5K ? Suggestions please. Drove both. Model 3 looks like more fun. Model S looks more luxurious. Of course space difference.

      Model 3 for sure. It’s going to be way faster and the interior space is pretty good for a car of its size. I am biased though 😂

    The Model 2 Performance version is the best car in the world. I know that may seem like an extreme claim, but it's not. The Tesla Model 3 Performance Version is an affordable four-door Ferrari that gets the equivalent of 100+ miles per gallon.

    I am starting to sense a lot more "buyer's remorse" from these overly biased Model 3 owners. They are literally posting stuff saying the 3 is better than the S just to get that validation from other 3 owners with buyer's remorse trying to Jedi mind trick (convince) themselves into believing they didn't make a mistake by not buying the S. My favorite OBVIOUSLY biased common claim is about the coil suspension. "I like the stiffer more responsive coil suspension" Oh yeah really? When 95% of your driving experience is relatively straight forward where those preferred "stiffer and more responsive" coils let you feel every shitty inch of these crappy dilapidated roads we are all subjected to everywhere in the Union. But please tell me more about how that superior 5% turning driving experience is so wonderful that you actually prefer the coil suspension over the unavailable air suspension.......That's honestly where I throw the "bullshit flag" down on the 50 yard line. Every time I hear that farce all I am actually hearing is "I'm trying to fool myself into thinking I made the right choice." and "No Ragrets." lolz...! Last but not least My second favorite overtly biased comment "I actually prefer having to turn my head or avert my gaze from the roadway and not subject myself to unnecessary risk in order to use my "ergonomically" placed center console when driving. I find having an instrument panel directly in front of me where just a quick downward glance allows me to monitor my speed, quickly select a phone number for a contact who has multiple, identify which song is playing next because I skipped the last one, see which lane I should be in or where my next turn will be on navigation to be unnecessary or excessive." I repeatedly read y'all bragging how financially savvy you from buying a car that costs half as much as the premium sedan and it's basically as good as or better based on "x, y, z" factors and many of us just aren't buying your bullshit LOLZ!!!! Peace Love and Chicken Grease! TESLA 4 LIFE!!!!

      @@Jim Shire - "I am calling people out on their bullshit" ... "all the bullshit comments from Model 3 owners" - These statements show that you are a hater without any evidence. You don't have to like a Tesla car but there is no need to lie.

      I'm not judging ANYONE. I am calling people out on their bullshit and NOT judging them for buying a smaller car. If you took the time to read all the bullshit comments from Model 3 owners trying to convince themselves that they made some savvy economical choice, based on their self delusion, which resulted in an equal or superior vehicle to the Model S. You really didn't read what I wrote and decided to make your comment prior to reading my rant in its entirety. I have personal experience with the Tesla coil vs air ride suspension and the later is in a category that coil suspension could never achieve. M3 owners are repeatedly regurgitating how amazing and responsive their M3 coil suspension is versus the UNAVAILABLE Model S's air suspension when taking sharp turns etc. I believe that they are 100% accurate and truthful with their handling claims. But here's the problem that I have with their assertion as they don't stop there but decide to insult the rest of the Model S owners with the typical follow up statement of "i'm so glad I decided to go with the M3 and basically got an equal if not superior car for half the price." The typical daily driving experience consists of 90+% straight line'ish type driving. For owners to place so much emphasis on the only thing the M3 truly outshines the MS on along with lying to themselves with how economically savvy they are compared to MS owners, because it handles better during that 10% of driving experience, is ridiculous. We all know that the roads are literally shit everywhere in the US and that we all have to endure a similar daily driving experience regardless of where we live. So when owners, who are reeling from buyer's remorse, chime in with "The M3's handling during the minuscule accumulative few minutes each day I spend negotiating sharp turns is so completely awesome that it truly overshadows the exponentially dominant amount of time of my commute where I feel every teeth rattling, coffee splashing pothole or bump in the road whilst driving straight" I am just sick of those owners lying to themselves and denying their buyer's remorse over their M3 purchase where that process in turn results in insulting the rest of us MS owners by insinuating they (magically) possess an equal or superior vehicle at half the cost. That's where I throw the bullshit flag down on the 50 yard line. Just stop already! Tesla made it quite clear that the M3 is not and will never be an equal to the more costly MS when there was a popular rumor/belief that a fully spec'd M3 will somehow be as good as the MS at a much lower price. No you didn't get a Tesla that is as good as the more expensive model. Stop trying to make Model S owners feel like foolish gullible idiots for paying twice as much for a vehicle that could have been obtained for 1/2 the sticker price because you are trying to distract yourselves from coming to terms with your buyer's remorse.........

      @Jim Shire - ""buyer's remorse" from these overly biased Model 3 owners." - Some drivers prefer smaller/lighter car for its handling, other drivers prefer larger/heavier car for its ride. You are judging others for their choices with your own reference which is 100% WRONG.
