Cloth vs. Leather Seats: What’s Right for You?

,

So, you’re in the market for a new or used car. You already know what kind you want, or you’re still shopping around to figure out which model will fit your needs. You know, or have an idea of, the amount of features, interior space, and capability you want. But, have you thought about what kind of seats you want? Most vehicles come with cloth or leather, and it can be a tough decision. You want to pick the right material that will be comfortable and long-lasting. You also want it to match your taste. Here are the pros and cons of cloth and leather seats.

Cloth Seats

Pros

  • They’re usually more affordable. Most cars come with cloth seats when you buy the base model or one of the lower trim levels. So, it’s no additional cost to you.
  • They’re softer to the touch, and less slippery than leather seats.
  • They don’t get hot in the summer or cold in the winter.
  • Because they don’t get hot, they won’t burn your skin or stick to it like leather seats do in hot weather.
  • They usually come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, so you can customize them to match your style.

Cons

  • They don’t look or feel as luxurious as leather seats.
  • When you spill something on them, you typically can’t just wipe it off. You’ll have to use some kind of cleaner to get stains out.
  • They absorb odor easily, so if you spill something on them that smells bad, that smell could last a while. Or, it may never come out.
  • They also hold on to dust, pollen and mildew easily, so they can aggravate your allergies.
  • Their color could fade over time.
