Should the Model 3 refresh have moved the car closer to the M3?
Wouldn't this be more at home in the Model S section of the forum if the topic is does the model S look dated?
No. They need to continue to pretend that the model 3 is simply a car company filling out its product line.
I can't vote because there isn't a choice that fits my opinion. Pre-refresh Model S looks dated compared to the 3. Post-refresh Model S does not. While the S nose cone wasn't awful, it was one of the weaker parts of the design in my opinion. Looks are very subjective though.
I think the poll is only talking about post refresh Model S.
I voted yes as there is a lot more overhang and higher hood on the S. Still a great looking car but as far as the side profile is concerned it it looks dated compared to the M3's if for no other reason than the front and rear overhang. The refresh I think really helped the front end of the S and the older version looks much more dated to me.
Well, the greater S "overhang" provides a lot more cargo space than the 3.
Now that the S has a new nose I don't think it looks dated at all. Both cars are stunning. The S has a sleeker, lower look. The 3 has more glass and is just as attractive in a different way.
I think not, because the S refresh brought it in line with the design cues of the X and 3. And even if it still looks more conservative than the 3, the high-end luxury car market tends to be aimed at a slightly more conservative market than the low-end luxury car market. That's a generalization, I know, but there is truth to it.
To me the model 3 does say "porsche", where I don't get that vibe at all from the S.
I don't like the chrome trim on either car. Too bad that trim can't go away with the grill.
