Hello

It s not easy by looking the documentation, but in some combo i see the word leatheret instead of leather

Is there a difference in leather between sport and non sport ?

Are some seats perforated and other not ?

thank you

The sport comes with leather. You can tell by how it feels and I believe it has white stitching. The base and premium come with leatherette. You can add leather option on the premium trim.

Leather is an option. In sport models, it comes standard. Same with hybrid. If you're buying a non-hybrid, non-sport, you'll see leather seats listed as a $1000 option on the window sticker if it has them. If seats are perforated, it is leather. If they're not perforated, it is leatherette.

Leatherette is another name for vinyl.

Can't imagine my car without that nice leather smell. I bought zanios leather in a bottle at the recommendation of somebody on this board - love it am totally hooked. Plan on wiping my seats down every couple of months with the stuff!

That thing we call a ski pass-through on the non deluxe models you call a hockey stick pass-through, right?

I have the leather option. However, having checked out the basic car, leatherette and leather feel the same to me.
You need sensitivity training!

I haven't felt the non-leather, but when I saw an example of it(in stone, I believe), it looked terrible, like old-fashioned, smooth vinyl. I hope it feels better than it looks.

It honestly felt same as leather to me. That said, I don't like leather in cars because it feels sticky, especially in the summer. But because I always bought higher trim all my cars always came with leather seats.
I usually cover driver seat with a towel for additional comfort.

For Q50 I'd get Premium with cloth seats if it was offered. But then again, the queen wants heated seats and they only come in leather or vinyl.

The Leatherette actually feels really nice. I personally like the texture and feel of it. I would be willing to bet most people (the type that do not typically end up reading this thread) would not notice the difference if they were not told.

Zaino...that stuff is addictive. :D

I don't use chemicals (other than glass cleaner) on my interior so I stick with Leather Honey every 6 months and a damp microfiber towel wipe down every week...or as needed.

My sales guy actually tried to tell me the leatherette was leather. I did not feel like arguing the point and was buying the sports model with leather.


Not sure what the current man made products are but in past cars had issues with cracking materials after a few years...never had that with leather!

I use zaino products for years. For the leather i like the odor. My wife don't. But a great product. I know it's difficult to see the difference between false and real leather. But i disagree that a real leather don't show wrinkle, false leather don't wrinkle with time
