We all know that Tesla Model S has undergone a series of minor updates in its cars for the past few years. Since five years ago, the Tesla Model S cars don’t seem to change when it comes to its looks. That’s the reason why most car enthusiasts don’t usually see major differences, unless they test drive it.
However, the 2017 Tesla Model S is an exemption to the rule: the long-time faux front grille is definitely gone. Instead, it has been replaced with a new front fascia along with slightly reshaped headlights. And instead of its usual semi-bulky appearance, the 2017 model now employs a sleeker and more streamlined finish. Needless to say, the 2017 model now brings it in the same line with both Model X Crossover and Model 3 Sedan.
Even though Tesla has made the 2017 model a new look, it actually just refine the previous model style by giving it a more sporty look. The headlights have now a LED Strip outlining the top and the lens’ outer side while a smaller LED Strip adorns the upper edge.
The 2017 Model S still features a 17-inch screen that controls every car functions outside the power windows and door locks. Its center console still contains cup holders, though it was raised a little bit. However, it now features a new storage bin that is located right in the middle, where the gear shifter is supposed to be. The biggest change so far is the passenger seat’s front now has a trim insert that brings it along with its upper dash part.
Additional features include the company’s Ludicrous Speed Upgrade offer, which enables the engine’s overall performance to increase. Next is the Premium Upgrades Package, bringing Nappa Leather to dashboard and armrests along with upper dashboard seating and Alcantara Headliner. The third one is the Subzero Weather Package, which offers a heated steering wheel, seats, wash nozzle heaters and warm blade defrosters. And the last one is the Ultra High Fidelity Sound Package, bringing SiriusXM radio, larger audio amplifier, subwoofer and 12 speakers along with it.
