2022 Ford Escape Interior

 At first glance, the Ford Escape Hybrid has an appealing interior with modern styling and a straightforward dashboard layout. The build quality is good, and everything feels well-assembled. However, the interior is trimmed with a surprising amount of hard and cheap-looking plastic, which detracts significantly from the ambiance. This is particularly true for the door panels and centre console. In terms of material quality, the Escape Hybrid trails the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid and Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.

2022 Ford Escape Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Ford Escape's cabin, while attractively styled and spacious for both front- and rear-seat occupants, is marred by several low-cost plastic panels, particularly those on the doors and lower centre console. Standard seat upholstery is highly textured cloth, while higher trim levels get convincing faux-leather seating surfaces or genuine leather in the Titanium. The spacious cargo hold behind the Escape's rear seat can accommodate up to eight carry-on suitcases, matching its crosstown rival, the Chevrolet Equinox. We were able to fit 21 cases in the Escape with the rear seats folded, but the Equinox held two more.
