Especially for anyone who's had all 3 - what's your preference?

I love the look of the leather interior in my mate's Civic but never been a fan of when it's summer, you're wearing shorts and your skin welds to the seat... :reddy:

Canot comment on leather as an owner just as a passenger, and I didnt like it.
Altohugh it was well maintained, in mint condition.
Looks very elegant, but not so comfy, feels strange and cold on the skin in my opinion, and needs a lot more attention to maintain it's nice look!!

As for textile and suede, had 2 Civics, facelifted with simple textile, and now the pre-facelift with suede seats.

Pros and cons ->

Simple textile
+ easier to clean, less prone to get dirty
+ good "all-arounder" in summer and winter too
- cheaper, simpler look

Suede
+ nicer feel on the skin upon contact with the suede
+ lloks more elegant than simple textile
- slightly more difficult to clean, more prone to show it's age/wear (due to rubbing it's surface, not proper cleaning, etc.)
- in hot weather conditions, it feels warmer on your back if not using AC

Sort of got the best of both worlds with me, I've got half leather/half textile seats. You don't get stuck to them but still have the nice look!

Fabric is certainly more comfy. Warmer in winter, cooler in summer.

Ive always had fabric in my Mazda's but I wanted a change so went with leather for my civic.

Leather looks more premium and it seems to be just as comfy IME

Got some red vinyls being made to put on the headrest to make it look a little more snazzy

I had leather in my old 200SX and although they looked great I didn't find them practical. They're burning hot in summer and freezing in winter #doh.

Consequently, I'm a fabric fan.

Leather, premium look, cold in winter, take some looking after, can become scratched and marked easily
Suede, look good but can become tatty
Fabric, hard wearing, warm, and with the right fabric can look premium,

I have had all 3 and would no longer spend the £1000 plus for leather option
