Leather Interior vs. Cloth Interior

Leather Interior vs. Cloth InteriorIt is a debate as old as time itself. Okay, maybe not quite that long. But it is a debate that has raged for as long as cars have been around: Leather Interior vs. Cloth Interior. Which one is better? Which side do you side with? Why? What are the pros and cons of each?

Choosing between a leather interior and cloth interior can be a very difficult choice for any truck owner. And although cost is a big factor in most people’s decision, it should not be the sole factor in your decision. There are several other factors to consider when choosing your next interior.
