Park Assist, Sides
Opt for the Pilot Pack in a Polestar 2, and you'll get a feature called Park Assist, Sides. This adds a side-scanning feature to the Polestar's front and rear parking sensor system, providing improved guidance in tighter spaces.
A suite of high-performance features that can be added to dual-motor models of the Polestar 2. It adds powerful Brembo brakes, Ohlins dual-flow valve dampers, 20-inch forged aluminium wheels, special golden seatbelts and some minor cosmetic upgrades. It's ideal if you're intent on making your Polestar a bit more exciting and evocative to drive.
An advanced driver assistance feature that helps keep the Polestar automatically centred in your lane of choice. It also works in conjunction with the adaptive cruise system, which maintains your desired speed and a set safe distance from the car in front, all of which makes the Polestar less tiring to drive on longer trips.
The Pilot Pack is a safety- and convenience-oriented upgrade that adds a host of advanced features, including Pixel LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, Pilot Assist, LED front fog lights with a cornering function, a 360-degree parking camera, automatically dimming exterior mirrors and the Park Assist, Sides feature.
Polestar's advanced Pixel LED headlights automatically dip in areas where there are vehicles and bicycles, which reduces glare for preceding traffic while providing you with the maximum amount of visibility.
If you want more luxurious touches and equipment in your Polestar 2, the Plus Pack is worth considering. It adds an upmarket Harman Kardon sound system, a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats, a power-saving heat pump, upgraded interior trim and illumination, a panoramic roof, wireless smartphone charging and more.
This is a system that provides quick access to the car, comfort and assistance features, either via the Polestar app or the SOS and Connect buttons in the car. If you experience a puncture, for example, roadside assistance can be called for using the Connect button.
Polestar Digital Key

Polestar doesn't have conventional showrooms. Instead, it offers Polestar spaces – of which there are only a few – that allow you to have a look at the cars in person. Polestar says that its unique retail environments are designed to allow you to take in the cars at your own pace, with no pressure.
