Choosing between a leather and cloth upholstery has always been a heated debate ever since. Which one is really better? Longhorn Truck Accessories in San Antonio Texas will provide you with the pros and cons of each so you can make your own informed decision.

Leather Pros:

  • It’s soft, supple and is considered highly comfortable
  • It’s resistant to spots and water, though must be cleaned swiftly to avoid permanent damage
  • It’s very durable and can last a lifetime given the proper care and maintenance
  • It will give your truck a more luxurious look
  • It will not carry odor as compared to cloth upholstery
  • It’s considered easy to clean
  • It can maintain its luxurious look longer than cloth
  • It can boost your truck’s resale value

Leather Cons:

  • Genuine and fake leather is sometimes hard to distinguish
  • It can become hot and uncomfortable during summer
  • It’s more costly
  • Poor maintenance can cause it to crack and tear, repairing it may even cost more than cloth
  •  

Cloth Pros:

  • It will never overheat during summer
  • It’s very affordable
  • It’s a better choice for families with children since it can absorb sweat and is more comfortable against sensitive skin
  • Punctures from pet nails or sharp objects will not show damage much as compared to leather

Cloth Cons:

  • It may not last very long
  • It can be easily soiled and stained
  • Added maintenance is needed if you want the fabric to withstand stain or dirt, though even that still needs periodic treatment maintenance since cloth fabric is easily damaged
  • Cloth absorbs odors, resulting to a smelly car
  • They do not look as elegant as leather even if there are hundreds of cloth designs you can choose from
