2020 Tesla Model X Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos
With its sharp and intuitive 17-inch touchscreen, regular over-the-air updates, and standard premium interior, the 2020 Model X has enough exclusive features to satisfy buyers who prefer the bleeding edge of technology. We give it an 8 out of 10 for features.
For the most part, what you see with the Model X is what you get. Both Long Range and Performance models come with the same comfort and convenience equipment, and both include the same safety features discussed above. The only options are colors, interior trims, wheels, and seating arrangements.
Interiors are upholstered in synthetic leather and include a nine-speaker audio system, HEPA air filtration system, heated seats for every passenger, a heated steering wheel, and wood ash trim.
The 2020 Model X Long Range model costs $84,990 and the Performance variant starts at $104,990. Check off the two priciest options—$7,000 Full Self-Driving and the $6,500 six-passenger seating—and you’re looking at about $120,000 or so for a loaded-up Model X.
Wheel options and one of the extra-cost interior colors and trims could add a few grand more to that bottom line.
Standard on all models and dominating the cabin is the 17-inch touchscreen. It controls almost everything save the signal indicators, so it’s a good thing the system works as intuitively as it does. It is clear, fast, intuitive, and easy to learn, despite its sheer size being intimidating at first. Once you know it, it won’t be hard to use—though we certainly recommend taking advantage of the voice control function so you’re not poking and prodding the screen while driving.
Another interesting point is that every Model X comes standard with the hardware necessary to accept all current and future softwares. This means new features might download into your car via Tesla’s over-the-air updates; it also means you can purchase features like Autopilot after you purchase your car from the factory.
Tesla’s Supercharger network is an asset in the Model X’s appeal and overall usability. It’s integrated with the Model X’s navigation system, and owners can plug in to Superchargers for 30 minutes for up to 170 miles of range. Unlimited charging at these Supercharger stations now comes with every Model X for 2020.
