Interior details

The Tesla Model X comes standard with seating for five, although seating for six or seven is available. It comes standard with a second-row bench and two seats in the third row for three-row models. However, second-row captain's chairs are an available option. Heated synthetic leather seats are standard throughout. A massive 17-inch touchscreen display dominates the dash, controlling everything from seat positioning to music. 

Child seat details

The 2020 Tesla Model X has LATCH anchors in the outboard seats of the second and third rows if present. Two-row Model X's will have two LATCH anchors, while three-row models will have four LATCH anchors. A car seat can also be installed in the middle of a second-row bench, but it may restrict access to the third row since it will hang over the outboard seats, keeping them from folding flat or laying forward. Luckily, the 2020 Model X's flagship falcon doors provide plenty of headspace for installing, removing, or adjusting car seats.
