Adjusting Steering Effort

You can adjust the feel and sensitivity of the steering system to suit your personal preference:

  1. On the touchscreen, touch Controls > Driving > Steering Mode.
  2.  Choose a steering option:
  • Comfort - Reduces the effort required to turn the wheel. In town, Model 3 feels easier to drive and park.
  • Standard - Tesla believes that this setting offers the best handling and response in all conditions.
  • Sport - Increases the effort required to turn the wheel. When driving at higher speeds, Model 3 feels more responsive.

The only way to really know which option you like best is to try them.
