2019 Tesla Model X vs. Its Competition

2019 Tesla Model X
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

Keep in mind that adding Tesla’s so-called Full Self-Driving option (formerly called Enhanced Autopilot) is essentially an investment in the future.

Tesla offers the option, which will include future hardware upgrades and eventual systems that will enable automated city driving, as a $5,000 when new, on top of the $3,000 cost of Autopilot.

After the sale, you can upgrade for $4,000 to Autopilot and $7,000 to Full Self-Driving.

Quick Specs
7.7
The 2019 Tesla Model X is no longer the only all-electric SUV you can buy this year. It’s swift, pleasant to travel in, and relatively practical, save for its somewhat silly doors.
The 2020 Tesla Model Y electric crossover is the next big thing from the automaker, until the next thing.
8.0
The 2019 Audi e-tron is the way for families to go fully electric in a familiar and very luxurious package.
9.4
The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace tackles the Tesla question with a direct challenge: It's a better-looking Model X rival with a more traditional kind of prestige attached.
7.2
The 2019 Porsche Cayenne twists performance DNA with a strand of off-road talent, and bridges the gap between “Porsche” and “SUV” perfectly.
7.3
The 2019 Volvo XC90 is a standout effort from the Swedish brand, offering style, luxury, and practicality in a way many other luxury SUVs don’t.
