Want Leather Seats? No Problem!
Posted on 25 July 2018
If you have a preference toward leather seats in your cars, the fact of the matter is that you probably spent a lot more on your last vehicle, and you're going to end up spending a lot more on your next automobile—compared to one with cloth or vinyl seats, that is.
For those who want leather without having to pay for the premium or upgraded trim level, there’s a solution. You can add aftermarket leather seats to any car, and very often these seats are cheaper because a new car with a trim that has leather seats (and other add-ons) is considerably more expensive than the same model with a lesser trim.

There are A LOT of pro's when it comes to installing aftermarket leather seats in your vehicle:
- Quality: Aftermarket leather seats are often identical to or better than the factory-installed leather seats in terms of look, fit, and durability. Many of the factory leather seats use vinyl backers or low-grade leather, while most aftermarket kits are 100% leather and tend to be good quality.
- Comfort: Technically, the seat itself doesn’t change when you add leather to a vehicle. So, the comfort shouldn’t change much. However, on some cars, the factory leather is lower grade than the leather you get from an aftermarket kit.
- Customization Options: If you’re looking for a more unique look than the standard leather seats, you can opt for custom leather seats with particular color schemes and custom stitched logos. It’s relatively inexpensive to add customization to aftermarket leather seats, in fact.
- Additional Upgrades: If you’re replacing the seat covers with leather, it’s a simple matter to add in heated seats. There are also kits that will add cooling to the seats as part of the upgrade.
