Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Though the Model 3 is all the rage, the larger 2019 Tesla Model S remains a stunning achievement and design trendsetter, albeit somewhat dated in the details.

Pros
Handsome, elegant exterior design
Supercar-shaming acceleration
Good ride comfort
Ease of the Supercharger network
Updates keep making car better

Cons
Not quite a luxury car inside
Tight rear-seat entry/exit
Continual updates keep changing features
Fussy doors
Six-figure price tag for most desirable versions

The 2019 Tesla Model S ranked #1 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Tesla Model S has a score of 9.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Robust acceleration and nimble handling
Astounding all-electric range
Abundance of cutting-edge technology
Roomy seating and cargo areas

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting
Lacks advanced smartphone integration

By:

The 2019 Tesla Model S comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 1-speed direct drive.Revised trim level availability and pricing structure.Improved driving range.

PROS
Electric range is impressive
Wicked quick acceleration across the board
Liftback design affords abundant cargo space

CONS

Favoring a more simplistic arrangement, Tesla has altered the Model S's lineup for 2019. Gone are the 75D, 100D, and P100D and in their place is the base Model S and the Model S Performance. The entry-level car comes with a battery capable of delivering a 310-mile driving range but buyers can select the Extended Range package—either at the time of purchase or anytime after that—which boosts the range to 335 miles. The Model S Performance comes with a range of 315 miles but focuses more on acceleration times; Tesla claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 3.0 seconds. For $20,000, Tesla will unlock the car's Ludicrous Mode, which drops that claimed acceleration time to an incredible 2.4 seconds.

Pros
So quick it'll make you dizzy,
fun-to-drive nature,
class-leading maximum driving range.

Cons
Cabin isn't as nice as the price suggests,
large infotainment screen is distracting at times,
rear passengers have no space to store small items.

Mercedes-AMG creates the ultimate muscle SUV with enough room for an extended family.

Pros
Rocket ship acceleration,
S-class interior luxury,
high-tech features galore.

Cons
Clumsy-shifting automatic transmission,
discombobulated ride,
eye-watering price tag.
