Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Tesla has given the Model 3 an early facelift, though one less comprehensive than those traditionally applied to cars four or five years into the model-cycle. The most significant addition to the car is the heat-pump from the Model Y mid-size SUV. Performance is brisk whichever powertrain you have, and the 283bhp motor in the Standard Range propels the car to 60mph in 5.3sec.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Impressive range
  • Fantastic electric powertrain
Cons
  • Poor ride quality
  • Dumb steering

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 is the smallest, most affordable car in the American manufacturer’s range of EVs. It was an Auto Express 2020 Car of The Year award winner. Built to take on the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class, but Tesla also has one eye on the arrival of the BMW i4, as well as upstart executive EVs from the likes of Polestar.

Pros
  • Fastest electric car on the market
  • Powerful electric motors
  • Impressive range
Cons
  • No 30-day subscription to Tesla’s connected services

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Model 3 was named Auto Express Car of the Year two years ago. For 2021, it's out with shiny chrome on the outside, and in with cool satin black trim. Inside the minimalist look and spacious interior remain, but piano black surfaces have been replaced by matte black trim, the centre console now gets a big storage box with a sliding lid.

Pros
  • Bigger and more fun to drive
  • Excellent range
Cons
  • More expensive than the Performance model

autoexpress[4]

Sentiment Score 83%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Model 3 has possibly the smoothest integration of a one pedal driving system of any EV on sale. A 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds really doesn't do the Model 3 justice. At any speed, the lightning fast throttle response and instantaneous torque gives proper hyper hatch eagerness. It's also wonderfully easy to drive at low speeds.

Pros
  • Impressive range
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Excellent range
Cons
  • Lack of combustion engine
  • Chunky steering wheel

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 is a winner – it has an impressive real-world battery range, a roomy and airy cabin, drives beautifully in all versions, and offers driver-assistance tech that largely works well in the UK. Despite nearly all controls being accessed via the central touchscreen, it all works well – as if the car's designers are as well versed in infotainment operating systems as they are in vehicle dynamics. It's not quite perfect – no car is – and there will be some who would bemoan the lack of SUV-style practicalities, while the fastback shape hints at a more useful hatchback the car didn't receive. There are already some murmurings about less-than optimum customer service when things go wrong, so a word to the wise if you're thinking of moving across a more established player.

Pros
  • Impressive battery range
  • Supercharger network
Cons
  • No SUV-style practicality
  • Limited interior options

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Model 3 is by far the best-selling vehicle in the small but growing entry-level EV category. With its 15-inch dashboard touch screen that controls almost all of the car’s features and functions, it's a technophile's dream. All versions of the Model 3 offer standard driver assistance features, but the highlight is the Autopilot system.

Pros
  • Best-in-class electric performance in the entry-level EV category
  • High-quality interior
  • Impressive battery life
Cons
  • No Android Auto or Apple CarPlay
  • Limited range

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
The Tesla Model 3 is a lovely car and a perfect example of how electric cars can outperform their gasoline-powered counterparts. The car takes off the second you put your foot down on the accelerator, like a rollercoaster launching out of the station. While Tesla's electric motor is nearly silent, the rest of the world is not. There are aspects of the car that I would change because they’re not to my taste.

Pros
  • Incredibly fast
  • Excellent battery life
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • Expensive compared to other electric cars
  • No dedicated handbrake
