These days there are more choices for seating material than just cloth and leather. Many brands, like Mercedes-Benz and BMW, have developed proprietary faux leathers that can be difficult to distinguish from the real thing. Others offer partial-leather, leatherette, or sport cloth interiors for clients to choose from.

Here's a list of the brands that Cartelligent clients most often equip with leather or partial leather seats.
