Tesla Model X Just Got Served By Consumer Reports, It’s Pretty, Is That It? : Consumer Reports magazine have been well known for reviewing different lines of products from cars to health products. Reviews from the magazine have been a big factor in product sales as consumers respect the magazine’s opinions. They recently reviewed the Tesla Model X SUV, unfortunately, more bad than good was mentioned.
The Falcon Wings Are A Drag
First, editors from the magazine were too obvious with their thoughts on the “falcon wing” doors of the SUV and mentioned that the rear doors are not smooth and have the tendency to stop and pause when being opened or closed.
They also mentioned that the cargo space is small for a car this size and that the third-row seats can only feet children. The second seat’s inability to fold also disappointed the testers. The driver can also get easily distracted with its windshield that lets too much glare inside the car.
Another distraction mentioned was the big 17-inch touch screen that contains most of the controls of the car. They mentioned that the big touch screen requires the driver to take their eyes and focus on the road, which can be quite unsafe.
The name Autopilot also does not stand up to its name since driver or human interaction is still required, whereas the term autopilot means that it should allow fully autonomous driving.
