Active noise cancelling not yet activated in the refreshed S or X yet. Waiting for software update. Same with gaming in the rear and other stuff advertised, but not yet implemented.I would add to the list the existing X differences:
2021+ models will have:
- adjustable height air suspension and a less jarring ride.
- Panoramic windshield
- Ventilated seats
- Active Noise Cancelling
I don't think any new Xs have been shipped. But the hardware is there in the S so the features are coming. And no such features have been listed for the Y, which was what the OP was asking about. I am hoping they will be there when I get my new X in Jan/Feb 2022.Active noise cancelling not yet activated in the refreshed S or X yet. Waiting for software update.

2020? Are you a time traveler?! I know, 2022. Just curious… a Plaid X vs S…. What drove you to the X? Space? I tossed both around in my head as well.I don't think any new Xs have been shipped.

We just turned in our leased X (see signature) and are getting a replacement. Before we got the X we looked at the S, but my back is all messed up from years of sports and when I test drove the S it seemed like my back might start hurting after a while. Plus we were replacing a BMW X series, so another SUV was going to a familiar environment. And now that we are in the SUV mode, I don't think I will ever buy another coupe/sedan. On the other hand. my wife likes smaller and lower to the ground cars and that is why she has a 3 LR. Previously she had a BMW 335. Maybe she will get a Roadster someday.2020?

My May 2021 build of the Model Y has a heated steering wheel, and each of the 3 back seat positions has an independently-controlled heated seat..... things like a heated steering wheel and heated back seats are standard on the X. ... I think I also heard power adjustable seats are no longer standard for the passenger seat on the 3/Y - only driver gets automatic seats on the Y. I could be off though.
Also, the auto-presenting front doors never get old. You just walk up and the doors unlock and open a bit or optionally, wide open. You get and the doors close automatically. And when you leave just push the doors close and they close and lock themselves. You get spoiled. I cannot tell you how many times I walked away from our 3 and left the doors partially closed because I did not slam them shut.X is significantly bigger overall with a much bigger battery for a lot more money, and there's no getting around that. The downsides are it's a lot more expensive to repair, insure, own, etc. It's just a lot of money for a car, even in today's wacky dollars. I never thought I'd cross shop it with something costing $30k less but, well, here I am.
I will say, the doors on X that I thought I would absolutely loathe, I actually kindof love. The falcon wings are a wacky feature that actually has some utility. But they also haven't broken on me yet*. The powered front doors also don't suck. Makes other cars feel broken.
If Model Y had been the only Tesla available at the time we were shopping back in September/October of 2020, we probably wouldn't own a Tesla. I went into it thinking I'd love it, and very much did not, even though I'm a huge Model 3 fan. As I've said before on here many times, I'm a weirdo who drives in circles for fun so when I like a car it usually means it will sell like crap. This is true for almost every car I've owned, actually, most of them have been niche cars. If I don't want one, odds are decent the general public will LOVE it.
I still think/hope there will be a refresh X Standard Range with about the same range as, say, a Y Performance. $95k -> $62k is a big gap with no crossover in the middle of that price point hole. The $70k midsize crossover price point is really, really fertile ground for conquests from other manufacturers if you can give people enough space, which X can. I'm not sure Y ever will unless they stretch the wheelbase by 8-10"
But first, they have to actually, you know, MAKE a refreshed model X for sale, and then sell a bunch at the higher price points, as one does when one is releasing a new Tesla model. Maybe a 2023 Stanard Range X will be a thing. That'd be rad. I don't need 350 miles of range so long as it doesn't turn into 175 miles of range when it's cold, and I don't need my quasi-minivan to run 11's in the 1/4 mile
*except for the time one of the latch strikers broke. But the door still worked!
