    Very well--no fading (so far). Looks best if you have the matching white cup holder area/steering column filler.

    Nothing special--just the occasional wipe with water-wet rag.

    Our moonstone Prime looks same as new and we've had it like 2 years now. Parked outside most of the time.

    I've had my 2016 Prius since 2016. It has a moonstone interior. I've had no issues keeping it clean. It still looks as bright and sharp as when it was new. I haven't had anything discolor or get stained. I have the same problems with dirt and dust as anyone else on the black portions of the interior. Those include the doors that tend to get marks dragged across them getting in and out. Some people were worried about the glare while I was looking and I can honestly say that the black section of the dash reflects just as much as the white part. The HUD bezel shows more reflection than the white section. I was afraid to get white but it just looked so sharp. I am so happy I did.

    I'm sure you will. I love the bright interior. It's easier to see my personal stuff. It's easier to see if something is dirty. And it seems to be so cheery.

    I had a 2016 and just traded it in for a 2019. The 2016 had the Moonstone interior. It is a great material and held up well. I put many bikes in the back, had some grease on the seats, and it wiped off quite nicely.

    I'm surprised that the 2019 RAV4 here has cloth on base and 2nd models (GX and GLX), REAL LEATHER (accented) on the next model up (Cruiser), but the very top model (Edge) has SOFTEX.

    I'd have thought that the premium finish would be real leather, not SOFTEX.

    Looks like the Cruiser is the top model. The Edge is a side or branch model away from the GX, GXL and Cruiser lineage.

    Basically, it appears to be the equivalent to our Trail Edition or Adventure Edition. Your “Jungle Khaki” colour is probably the same one as our “Lunar Rock” colour.

    EDGE was a disputed name they played games with - or legal wars more likely.

    FORD wanted it for their ... umm EDGE.

    But somehow in Australia and NZ it had been copyrighted by TOYOTA. Ford tried to get it back, but TOYOTA refused. So the EDGE here is called the FORD ENDURA.

    And it remained un-used - but probably to rub salt into FORD's wounds, they named an edition of RAV4 "EDGE".

    That’s silly. Although I don’t see how a model and a trim level can be confused with one another.

    Yes, I doubt that it did TOYOTA many favours - every journalist article I read which explained why our FORD EDGE wasn't an EDGE basically threw a bit of dirt at TOYOTA.
