Tires can make huge difference, also some will create more noise with more miles driven.
My first impression of new Model X 2021 collected on Friday is that is more noisy then 2012 Vw Touareg or 2015 BMW X5 I have driven lately. But both older cars have smaller and narrower tires 18”. Original tires on Touareg where just fine for the first year, and later on they become noisy as hell. After replacing them with Goodyear car was again silent.
I will soon switch to winter tires and will report back if there is any difference.
Hmmm, interesting you mention this. I test drove a new MX last month and on the same road and same conditions, it did seem more noisy to me than my 2017 MX. So I am puzzled.For what it s worth: I have a 2017 Model X and I just recently did test drive a Model X 2020. The 2020 was noisier then my 2017!! However I should get my 2021 X in December and then I can tell if there is any difference!
