I'm told the standard wheel size is 19" on the Pro-S. I "think" the Gradient gives you 20-inch. Not sure I'm aware of what the PROS and CONS are. Looks are one thing. Functional benefits? Appreciate any insight here. Thanks!

Yes, Gradient has 20" wheels and a few other touches, like silver trim on the rear pillar. The only functional benefit I can determine is aesthetic - the wheels look better. But they're also heavier, which means the lighter 19" wheels give you 10 miles more range.

And there may be a ride quality difference. If you can drive both, you may want to just to satisfy your curiosity.

I don't find the ID.4 ride quality harsh on the 20s but haven't driven the 19s to compare. My flexy Flex came with 20s and a stiffer stock suspension due to my options package so I "downgraded" to 18s to smooth out the ride. My i3 has 19s because I preferred the ride vs. a side-by-side test drive on 20s, though they're both a little harsh.

We have the FE and it comes with 20s. They really fill the wheel wells nicely. You will lose a little mileage and a little comfort (hardly noticeable) with the 20s.
