Over the past two weeks, the news about Tesla has been all about the upcoming Model 3, which was finally unveiled at the end of March. While it will likely be at least two years until most buyers will start getting their hands on a Model 3, Tesla doesn’t want you to forget about the model that started it all. Four years after the first Model S hit the road, Tesla is giving its popular electric sedan a refresh with some new features thrown in.

On the outside, the updated Model S gets a slightly refreshed face that brings it closer to the Model 3 and Model X. The front fascia is also getting new dynamic LED turning lights that will improve visibility at night, especially on winding roads.

Inside the Model S now features a Medical grade HEPA air filtration system that prevents particulate exhaust pollution, allergens and bacteria from entering the cabin. The Model S has been criticized for not having as luxurious of an interior as some of its gas-powered rivals, so Tesla is also adding upgraded materials and ambient lighting to the interior.
