In the visual department, the 2024 Tesla Model 3 features new front and rear fascias. It has a slightly pointier nose, slimmer headlights, and a new bumper. At the rear, it features new C-shaped taillamps, a different bumper, and a diffuser that is on the sporty side. The 18-inch Photon and 19-inch Nova wheels round off the makeover on the outside.

Opening the door will reveal a new dashboard with ambient lighting otherwise flowing into the fresh door cards. The car is offered with a new steering wheel that does not feature a turn signal stalk behind it anymore, and users will have to fiddle with the large touchscreen display, which has increased from 15 to 15.4 inches, to change gears. There is a new 8-inch display for backseat passengers, additional perforated upholstery, and Netflix, YouTube, and arcade games to pass the time while waiting at charging stations. The cargo area has also increased from 19.8 to 20.97 cubic feet (561-594 liters), Tesla says.

All versions of the Model 3, including the base, Performance, and Long Range, are accompanied by a 4-year/50,000-mile (80,467-kilometer) warrant, which doubles when it comes to the powertrain. The Long Range variant has an extra 20,000-mile (32,187-km) warranty for the drive components and battery pack. And as most people probably already know, no corrosion protection is included. The 2024 Model 3 is expected to launch in the coming months if everything goes as planned, and it should range (pun intended) from around $42,000 to approximately $55,000. Full pricing details will be released in due course.

Now, while interested parties are waiting for Tesla to drop additional details and images of the facelifted Model 3, the internet has started having its way with it. We're not talking about weird body kits yet, but fresh colors and different wheels. Kelsonik has imagined it in multiple hues, including some flashy ones like yellow, green, and purple. The alloys have a double-spoke design and fill the arches better than the stock ones, and despite looking a bit sportier than the non-modified copies, the rendered ones do not appear to sit closer to the asphalt. Still, as you can imagine, giving any car larger alloys will make the ride stiffer, so this one would bounce around more than the stock variants.

So, which color would your 2024 Tesla Model 3 have if you were in the market for one? And would you give it a set of larger wheels at the expense of comfort? Head to the comments section below and let us know what you think about it.
