Should I Get Leather Seats or BMW SensaTec Seats?

Today's BMW models are advanced. They include the latest driver-assistance features and pre-collision prevention technologies. They offer infotainment systems that let you sync up to your smartphone and utilize voice commands to mitigate on-road driving distractions. They provide comforts like heated and cooled seats, and ambient lighting to set the mood, wherever your Charlotte travels take you. They are still, as they always have been, focused on providing you a superior driving experience. In a race to find out which BMW best fits your needs, and which fancy new features you what, though, you might have forgotten about some of the more basic choices – like "what seat material do I prefer?".

BMW SensaTec vs. Leather

In case you weren't already aware, most BMW models come standard with BMW SensaTec upholstery. SensaTec is BMW's premier leatherette seating option, providing easy care and fantastic value with a similar look and feel to leather seating surfaces. Meanwhile, BMW offers several genuine leather options, varying based on the vehicle you choose. Genuine BMW leather looks and feels slightly different than SensaTec, providing supreme luxury, but requiring somewhat more care.
