What are the differences between the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y?

I reviewed a Tesla Model Y and compared it to a Tesla Model 3

It shouldn't come to you as a surprise when I tell you that the Tesla Model Y is essentially a Model 3 that has gone through puberty and ate a bunch of pizza. The Model Y is bigger than the Model 3, and its interior proportions make for a comfortable place to be on a road trip, something you can't exactly say for the Model 3.

However, there's a handful of differences you wouldn't notice unless you sat down with the two cars and directly compared the two; and that's exactly what I've done.

The Model Y is more comfortable, and has more modern trim accents, like the transition from chrome trim on the Model 3 to matte black trim on the Model Y. The rear of the Model Y gives you an electric tailgate, something which the Model 3 in our video lacks.

The roof layouts are different, and so are the rear armrests. Though, a lot of the exterior styling has stayed the same. Take the headlights, which are identical in shape. The lines both end up in the same place, the rear, and both frunks are the same size. To your average person, the two designs are identical.
