2016 Tesla Model X: Best Rearview Camera Out There
by Travis Langness, Automotive Editor on August 1, 2016
Our long-term 2016 Tesla Model X shares a lot of traits with the Model S, and one of them is the giant center screen that controls about 90% of the cabin activities. That screen is responsible for the rearview camera display, and since the screen is like two jumbo iPads stacked on top of each other, there's plenty of space to see what's going on behind you.
The screen is crisp and clean, and the camera can see just about everything. Even in a poorly lit parking garage (pictured above) or bright light, both camera and screen perform exceptionally well.
The Model X does lack the 360-degree (think bird's-eye view) camera that some competitors have, but the hyper-accurate parking sensors help alleviate this problem by allowing you to get within inches of a wall or parking pole.
