The Ractis was launched in October 2005 as a new compact car to succeed the Fun Cargo, which had been known for its "mobile space"catchphrase. The body, with a minivan's silhouette and a seating capacity for five, was 1,640 mm tall, or about 40 mm shorter than the Fun Cargo. The latter's retractable rear seats were replaced with the "dive-in seats," which could be slid forward with backrests folded flat and stowed under the front seats to create a large, flat cargo space (front-engine, front-wheel-drive [FF] model only). The engine lineup included 1.3-liter (2SZ-FE) and 1.5-liter (1NZ-FE) units, and the drivetrain configuration was either FF or 4-wheel-drive (available only with the 1.5-liter model). The transmission was a Super CVT-i for the 1.3-liter model and a 4-speed automatic with Super ECT for the 1.5-liter model. Selected models with the Super CVT-i transmission also employed the newly developed Active CVT system featuring the 7-speed sports sequential shiftmatic with a paddle shifter and a highly responsive CVT Sport mode.

A panoramic glass roof option that offered one of the largest glass areas in class was also available.
