Tesla has made a few improvements to reduce the NVH levels of the car to make it quieter. These include:

  • Improved tyres for reduced road noise.
  • Improved fit and finish with upgraded material quality

Another update is the dual mic setup for improved Bluetooth calling. The infotainment also features improved WiFi and wireless smartphone connectivity. Two smartphones can now charge wirelessly at the same time.

In terms of entertainment, the rear passengers now get an 8-inch screen placed behind the centre console to enjoy the content and control features of the car. The audio system on the dual-motor model gets upgraded to a 17-speaker system as compared to the 14-speaker unit on the older version.
