There’s a single vertical infotainment screen in the center of the dash, and a driver’s information screen attached to the steering wheel column. While you control most of the vehicle’s features (like one-pedal mode and different driving modes), through the main infotainment screen, controls for the headlights and windshield wipers are on the stalk within easy reach.
The Polestar 4 is the SUV-coupe of the lineup with a swooping roofline — believe it or not, no rear window. That untraditional omission allowed designers to give rear passengers more headroom and legroom, according to the company. The Polestar 4 has a slightly shorter wheelbase than the 3, but from a rear passenger’s perspective, it doesn’t feel claustrophobic — even without the rear window.
In the Polestar 4, the driver’s digital rearview mirror. The sunroof extends back just behind the crown of the rear passenger’s heads so it doesn’t feel like a coffin, even though there’s no glass behind the seats. Ambient lighting around the interior almost makes the lack of a rear window unnoticeable.
The Polestar 4 also gets a large central infotainment screen, but it is oriented horizontally, rather than vertically and the driver’s information screen is mounted to the dash, instead of the steering column. There is no HUD in the Polestar 4, and unlike the 3, it comes with steel spring suspension. That set up makes it feel harsher on potholed roads and translates undulations and heavy-feeling movement for passengers in the rear seats.
