Cloth is hard to clean. I get spills all the time and need to take it to get it clean.

I prefer Leather because it is nicer to me, makes the car have a more expensive feel with better resale value, easier to keep clean and looks better than cloth in my opinion.

Leather holds up much better than cloth. My last Celica had cloth seats that shredded after 5 years. My new Celica has dealer installed leather seats that turned out to be the original cloth seats overlayed with a gorgous leather seat cover.(front and rear) They seem heavier duty than the factory seats, but for the price I feel I should have gotten all new seats. Goodluck!!

imo..cloth is more comfortable to the skin and your body..
my celica had leather and i liked it...but it wasn't totally appealing to me..
wrx has cloth...with this..i know i like it better cause of the way i see it and the way it feels to me..


this is a decision based on what you like..
idc about the cons of either one cause that's what what you're looking into

I hate the smell of leather ;p

And when leather gets worn... It looks ugly ;p

It looks like a 500 pound man just sat in it or something ;p

cloth for sure. I've owned cars with both and like my cloth interiors better now! thumbsup

-Better to keep you in the seat while cornering.
-Not so hot in summer (even with tint)
-Winter doesn't really make a big deal
-Most cars with leather "seating" area have vinyl sides/backs which end up cracking and look like shit, plus the "sat in" look on the actual leather.

I'd only get leather on my next car if it was a luxury car that I didn't plan on keeping more than 5 yrs. thumbsup

Leather feels nicer, but cloth is more practical.
