Josh found the Model S very complex after driving the Model 3. He's already grown used to the 3's sparse, simple cabin, and especially loves its air venting system. He feels that the Model 3's interior is nicer overall and more well-laid out, due to the S' lacks of door pockets, vanity mirror lights, and garment hangers, as well as the weird cupholder placement.
The Model 3's seats felt more comfortable to him as well, and there's more headroom. The car has a more ergonomic feel overall. Josh explains that the outward visibility is better in the 3, and it's even easier to see out the back. Lastly, in regards to the interior, Josh was much more impressed with Model 3's sound system.
Driving dynamics are pretty similar overall. Of course, the smaller 3 feels more sporty and can even "feel" faster due to the car's size, driver's seating position, and stiffer suspension. However, the Model S packs more punch, as it should ... but, there's that naggy motor whine.
Despite all of this being said, he appreciates the door handles on the Model S. The power hatch and the bioweapons defense mode is pretty cool, and he was impressed with the air suspension. He definitely enjoyed his time in the Model S and considers it a great car.
In the end, when considering the fact that this Model S costs about double what he paid for his Model 3, he can't justify its worth in comparison. The Model 3 offers about 90 percent of what the S offers at half the cost. Josh says perhaps when the Model S is redesigned, the decision will be more difficult.
