Ford EcoSport vs Toyota RAV4: Interior, Seating, & Cargo

Inside the cabin of each model, you'll find seating for up to five people. They both also offer similar synthetic leather seating surface upgrades that are durable and stain resistant. In the Ford EcoSport, you'll find ActiveX™ seating material available.

For an added dash of luxury, you can upgrade the interior of each model with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, too.

To accommodate both passengers and cargo simultaneously, both the Ford EcoSport and the Toyota RAV4 also come standard with similar cabin configurations:

Toyota RAV4

Second-Row 60/40 Flip-Up and Split-Fold-Flat Seats



Adjustable Cargo Shelf

Standard on SES trim

Not Available

The adjustable cargo shelf offered by the Ford EcoSport is included with the available Cargo Management System. It splits the trunk area to give you more ways to organize your belongings. The Toyota RAV4 does not offer a comparably convenient cargo feature like this.

2021 Ford EcoSport vs 2021 Toyota RAV4: Exterior Design

Both the Ford EcoSport and the Toyota RAV4 also offer a variety of exterior features. A few of the available options include:

  • Fog lights
  • LED headlights
  • Power moonroof

From increasing visibility to letting natural light and fresh air inside the cabin, these fun-loving features improve every drive.

One feature you'll only find on the Ford EcoSport, however, is the standard unique rear swing gate with hideaway latch. It opens toward you rather than up, so you don't have to reach when loading or unloading cargo. In comparison, unfortunately, the Toyota RAV4 does not offer a rear swing gate design.

Ford EcoSport vs Toyota RAV4: Technology Features

When it comes to entertainment and connectivity on the road, both these versatile SUVs offer similarly convenient features. With available Apple CarPlay™ compatibility and Android Auto™ integration in either model, you can access certain apps, respond to messages, change the song, and more through the built-in touchscreen display.

Each model offers touchscreen upgrades, too. However, there is one convenient technology feature only offered by the Ford EcoSport:

Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror

The auto-dimming rearview mirror in the Ford EcoSport actively reduces glare at night. It enables you to see what's going on behind your vehicle and ensures you won't be blinded by approaching headlights.

To go along with this convenient night-time feature, the Ford EcoSport offers optional ambient lighting. Though the Toyota RAV4 offers ambient lighting, too, it falls short of its Ford competitor. In the Toyota RAV4, you'll find one-color ambient lighting, but in the Ford EcoSport, you'll find available ambient lighting with seven colors and seven intensity levels.
