Now that the Model 3 is refreshed when will we see the new features on the Model Y and what would you like to see?

Here are the things folks see on the horizon:
  • Updated center console
  • Dual paned/laminated glass in side windows
  • USB port in the glove box for sentry mode drive
  • Single casting front end
  • Larger rear casting
  • New 4680 structural battery

Things I would like to see:
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Andriod Auto / Apple Carplay
  • CCS or at least an adapter for N. America too
  • Heads-up display
  • Cloth interior (personal preference over pleather)
  • More standard driving automation features without paying for FSD (e.g., autopark and lane change)
That is my list, what have I missed from yours? Discuss . . .

Blind spot warning / cross-traffic alert that other manufacturers have been offering for ~10 years.

Ventilated/cooled front seats in addition to the heated seating; would make up for not having the option of choosing real leather seating.

Sirius/XM satellite radio with traffic and local weather radar overlays for the Nav system.

cloth interior as choice not replacement to vegan leather

  • Outboard seatbelt re-design. Fronts cut into our necks, rears have no way to secure them so unless positioned perfectly, rattle city.
  • Power frunk or redesigned latch because I'm not denting my hood just to close the lid. Had it nailed on my 3 with a weaker spring, but this design is completely different.
  • iPhone music navigation controls or Apple Music access
  • Power rear seat back up/down vs sprung/release. Raising them is a chore.
  • Door and rear seat ambient lighting.
  • 360 camera that won't require full self-driving option. Some economy cars offer this free.
  • Rear cross-traffic alert.

Larger center screen (prefer it to be same width but about 2 inches taller)
Handsfree liftgate opening
Heads up display of vehicle speed and blind-spot warnings on windshield
Heated steering wheel like I had on my old S

Most of my wants however are software-driven. The Y Performance Performance is great without the above items.
