On the '05 S60 2.5T AWD (USA) models, are the seats all leather or a combination of leather and "leatherette?" There seems to be a difference on the smoothness of the leather between the center, where your body touches the seating surface and the sides & back. Or could it just be different grades of leather used. Same question for the trim on the doors.

My brochure doesnt specify, just says "leather upholsteries". It does say the door panels are the same material as the seats

Thanks!

I thought I saw "leather seating surfaces" somewhere, either in a brochure or a description online. I was examining the cut edge of the "leather" which was folded over to make the pocket on the back of the seat. It appeared there was a cloth mesh backing to the "leather" which made me think it was "leatherette," however, there wasn't enough material exposed along the edge to make a definitive decision. It's possible just the pockets are "leatherette" which sure feels like the same material on the sides of the seats and on the doors.
