We Recommend

The 2023 Model 3 Range configuration is certainly best suited among all for its best value proposition.


Coming on the performance front, the Model 3 2023 will tackle against the spirits of BMW I4, Audi E-Tron GT, and Porsche Taycan. And its expected capability to hit 267-358 miles without giving up on the same 3.2-5.8 seconds 0-60 MPH and 140-162 MPH top speed prowess bolster its case.

Interior


The insides of the Model 3 is rather plain and without any individuality, mirroring the exterior's aesthetic style, but in this instance, that works to Tesla's advantage. The inside of the Model 3 is extremely elegant and clutter-free rather than having a bevy of knobs and buttons. From every seat, the entire roof is glass, giving the impression of openness. Even extra front legroom is provided by the instrument panel's forward design, resulting in a roomy passenger interior. With ample covered storage and charging for two cell phones, the premium center console is contemporary and effective. With plenty of legroom and lovely views via the all-glass top, the back seat is exceptionally pleasant. Additionally, it includes faux leather seats, tastefully incorporated air vents, and a massive panoramic moon roof.

Exterior


There has always been high acclaim for Tesla's designs, and the Model 3 is no exception. Overall, the outside of the Model 3 is simple, with a slender, wind-sweeping design. At first view, the automobile has a sleek, futuristic appearance. The hood drops dramatically since there is no engine. The body itself has a simple, organic form with little to no embellishment. The interesting part of the vehicle is a plastic aerodynamic cover for an alloy wheel along with that its ground clearance, which is suitable for a sedan at 5.5 inches, is adequate. The automobile has a considerably more modern and athletic appearance thanks to its curves. The headlamps' frowning expression adds some classic ferocity and the base trim comes equipped with 18-inch Aero wheels, while a 19-inch Sport wheel is an option.

Additionally, it offers a much better combination of track widths measuring 63.1 and 63 inches at the front and rear which helps make the automobile more stable and decrease understeer. On the other hand, the Tesla Model 3 equips a long wheelbase measuring 113.2 inches which increases riding comfort and stability, especially at higher speeds.

Competition


2023 Tesla Model 3 vs 2022 Polestar 2

Both the models offer a single-motor and dual-motor version, the Tesla Model 3 has a single motor at the back wheels, but the Polestar 2 uses a single motor at the front wheels. When choosing the Polestar 2 FWD over a car with rear-wheel drive (RWD), you'll have improved winter driving traction. All Polestar 2 versions include a 12.3-inch digital driver's display and a google-powered infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. Due to the absence of a central cluster in the Model 3, you must utilize the center stack to access vehicle data, which requires you to take your eyes off the road. So you can opt for the Polestar 2 over the Tesla Model 3.

2023 Tesla Model 3 vs 2022 BMW I4

The conventional BMW 4-Series sedan's grandeur, flair, and distinction have been included in the design of the BMW i4. The minimalistic approach Tesla continuously uses in their vehicle design is expanded upon with the Tesla Model 3. The Model 3 feels futuristic and sleek since it has no buttons. There is no clear winner when it comes to style and design, however, the BMW i4 is superior if you place a high priority on the vehicle's appearance and feel while making your decision. The BMW I4 is a more comfortable vehicle for long-distance driving and it is especially controlled and smooth at highway speeds in the Comfort mode and experiences far less wind and road noise than the Model 3. The BMW i4 is unquestionably superior in terms of driving enjoyment, general elegance, and comfort.

Final Verdict


Like the 2022 iteration, the latest 2023 iteration also receives a thumbs up from CARHP. The Tesla Model 3 offers regular people an affordable opportunity to leave a Tesla in their driveway. Additionally, it is a sensible option for individuals who value cutting-edge innovation thanks to its electric engine, great driving range, and variety of tech options.
