Pros

Spacious, comfortable seats
Good cargo capacity

Cons

Introduced, and then discontinued, Standard Range version.Seven-seat configuration now available.

Pros
Plenty of range
Stunning acceleration, especially from the Performance model
Convenient Supercharger network for long-distance driving
Roomy seating front and rear

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration
Performance model's overly stiff ride

By:

Other than the introduction of an optional pair of pop-up third-row jump seats, we aren't forecasting any major design or technology upgrades for the Model Y this year.

Pros
Peppy electric powertrain,
spacious cargo hold,
cutting-edge technology features.

Cons
Chassis isn't as taut as the four-door Model 3,
fit-and-finish needs polish,
too reliant on the touchscreen for simple vehicle settings.

Plug-in Energi option
Up-to-date active safety

Cons
Six years old, few changes
Uncompetitive EPA ratings
