Less Hip room in rear seats than Model 3? What am I missing here?
Model Y: 50.6"
Model 3: 52.4"
Its a bigger and wider car, and yet less hip room? No idea why so.

Yay, this is good:
Off-Road Assist is designed to provide overall improvements when driving off-road. In addition to allowing the wheels to spin, Off-Road Assist balances the torque between the front and rear motors to optimize traction. Off-Road Assist improves traction on rough and soft
surfaces where one side of the vehicle may lose traction while the other side still has traction. When Off-Road Assist is on, the accelerator pedal provides more gradual torque, which is useful for crawling at low speeds (for example, over rocky surfaces).

Heat pump confirmed on page 131:

"Model Y uses a heat pump to maximize efficiency; therefore, your air conditioning compressor and external fan may run and make noise even when the outside temperature is cold and your vehicle is heating or supercharging."

Wait, I thought the Model 3 uses a heat pump too? No?

Darn, lol. All this time I thought they did. I will be curious to see how much more "range saving" the Y will show over the 3 over the average winter in cold places. I am sure folks like Bjorn will test thoroughly.
