The base trim has cloth upholstery, but that can become synthetic or genuine leather upholstery on the upper trims. Other useful features include a hands-free liftgate, remote start, and seat features. Depending on the trim, the front seats can get heating and power controls. The Ford model also has an optional panoramic moonroof. Sound system upgrades also vary, and the top-end Bang and Olufsen system has 10 speakers.
