• Car opens and starts automatically
  • Bootspace in the front and back
  • Not a lot of headroom in the rear

All Polestar 2s are keyless, and open when you get within two metres of the door. All you need to do then is sit in the driver's seat, press the brake and select D on the transmission.

There’s a 405-litre boot that expands to 1,095 litres with the seats down, with a hands free, powered tailgate that opens nice and high. There’s a smaller 35-litre space in the front too.

Rear seat passengers do well for legroom but those over six foot may find the roofline encroaching on their headspace. The ride is also choppier in the back, perhaps because you’re sat almost directly over the axle.

There are two USB-C chargers in the back though, with another pair upfront, plus an inductive phone charger. The door bins could do with being bigger, if we’re being picky.
