New Tesla Model 3 reviews are still coming as more and more magazines would like to get their hands on possibly the most popular electric car in the world.
First, we start with the MotorWeek overview and road test, which concludes that it will be a benchmark car for years to come.
Model 3 drives well and is a technology leader, but as always there are some bugs like slower than anticipated keyless authorization or panel gaps bigger than in other models in its class.
"The Tesla Model 3 is the best convergence of high technology and the practical automobile that we've yet seen."
The second video is from British magazine Autocar, who visited California to test drive the Model 3 and compare it to the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class.
Autocar is pretty happy with the Model 3 and called it incredible and a proper car, with the best touch screen system in the business. It is not as rewarding to drive as the sporty BMW or Mercedes according to the review:
"This is the big one. Or, rather, the small one: the Tesla Model 3, Tesla’s smallest car, is also its most important.
Tasked with taking the Californian company into uncharted territory when it comes to sales volume, this Audi/BMW/Mercedes-rivalling sedan is based on a new architecture, has a 300+ mile range and an affordable price - from $35,000 in the US, before options (of which the big battery is one).
We head, then, to California to try it out, on roads that represent the narrower, more interesting Tarmac than America’s wide highways. Places where cars like the BMW 3-Series are design to excel. How does the Model 3 shape up against the world’s best executive cars?"
