In the molecule of the title compound, C16H17N3O2, the planar benzimidazole ring system [maximum deviation = 0.013 (1) Å] is oriented at a dihedral angle of 75.32 (4)° with respect to the furan ring. An intramolecular C—H⋯O interaction results in the formation of a planar six-membered ring [maximum deviation = 0.019 (15) Å], which is oriented at a dihedral angle of 1.91 (3)° with respect to the adjacent furan ring. In the crystal structure, intermolecular C—H⋯N interactions link the molecules into centrosymmetric R 2 2(18) dimers. In addition, the structure is stabilized by π–π contacts between the imidazole rings [centroid–centroid distance = 3.5307 (8) Å] and weak C—H⋯π interactions.
