Model 3 size compared to Model S

This animated gif shows the relative size in profile of the Model 3 compared to the Model S. Scaling was approximated by scaling and lining up wheel sizes (21" on the Model S and 20" on the Model 3) and comparing mirror and size turn signal sizes which appear to be identical on both cars.

      I keep hearing about some people thinking that the model S was too big and hard to park and they wanted the model 3 to be smaller. I personally am happy to see that there does not to be a huge difference! I desperately want the model 3 to transport 4 normal adults comfortably!

      @Jamaicaman This puts Model 3 in the same size category as the BMW 3 series and Audi A4 just like Tesla has been saying. Model S is more like a BMW 5 series in terms of size. Personally I like the larger size of the Model S but I realize it's not perfect for a lot of people. Model 3 is going to fit that bill better for most.

      Looks taller too if that overlay is accurate. That would be good since it is a little awkward getting into the model S since it is lower to the ground. And it provides better visibility...
