It's hard to know exactly what's new on 2020 Model Xs because Tesla, unlike almost every other automaker, makes constant running changes to its products throughout each calendar year. According to a blog post on its consumer site, Tesla touts more efficient electric motors, faster charging via more robust onboard chargers, and a fully adaptive air suspension system. Tesla is also testing a new variant of the Model S—the Model X's sedan cousin—at Germany's famed Nürburgring race course.

Pros
Long driving range,
quick-charging battery,
impressive acceleration.

Cons
Cabin doesn't live up to the price,
gimmicky Falcon Wing doors,
build quality could be better.
