A heads-up display, which projects information such as the car's speed and battery life in front of the driver, could prevent drivers from looking at the 15ins display while driving and therefore help them focus on the road.
Despite its focus on autonomous technology, the driving experience in the Model 3 “remains enjoyably analogue”, says Car magazine, while the vehicle's acceleration performance easily matches its more expensive sibling, the Model S.
Drivers may find themselves using only their right foot to drive the Model 3, thanks to its regenerative braking system, which automatically applies the brakes when coasting in order to charge battery.
The batteries themselves come in two different options, says Top Gear - offering a 220-mile-per-charge range or 310 miles per charge.
As there are no dials behind the steering wheel to show your road speed, Mashable says you need to focus on the touchscreen in the centre console to see how fast you're going.
TechCrunch concludes that the Model 3 "is a well-designed, mid-sized sedan that managed to simplify the Tesla design ethos with luxury in mind and without making it feel any less a part of the Tesla family."
