When you buy a new vehicle, one question you’ll be considering is cloth vs leather car seats. Is one better than the other? Does one require more upkeep? We examine the pros and cons of each, so you can make an informed decision during your next dealership visit. in Mill Creek.
Why Choose Leather?
You can’t deny that leather exudes an luxurious, classy vibe. This is certainly the car seat of choice for luxury car buyers. Leather can be an indication of wealth. It’s also easier to clean and restore because the surface is less porous than cloth.
One drawback of leather is that the surface absorbs heat. Your legs and bath especially will feel it on a hot summer commute. If you happen to have black leather, then the heat absorption is even worse. Many newer vehicles are equipped with cooled and heated leather seats, which makes this drawback moot. Leather may also not be the best option if you travel with kids and pets in tow. Kids and canines can damage the material you paid a premium price for.
Why Choose Cloth?
Cloth is often the default and base option. While it’s not fancy, you won’t have to pay premium price. In other words, it’s a huge money saver. Cloth also doesn’t absorb heat and cold the way leather does.
One huge drawback of cloth, though, is that it’s vulnerable to stains. Certain liquids, such as blood and motor oil, can leave permanent stains that require professional detailing to completely remove. This is especially the case with light-colored cloth.
