What's leather and what's not in my HA ?

Want to use the correct products on the surfaces of the interior so wanted to check what is real leather and what is plastic, vinyl, etc. The top of the dash looks like a low grade leather but is it real ? How about the tops of the doors near the windows ? I'm thinking leather looking vinyl but ? I know the lower parts of the doors and center armrest are real and the console area is all plastic but if anyone could confirm the couple places I asked about I would appreciate it

Re: What's leather and what's not in my HA ?

You only need to use a simple, mild detergent to clean all the surfaces. Unlike boots, belts and saddles, the leather in vehicles is sealed and will not benefit from any special "leather" product. Specific to your question, the actual seating surfaces are leather but the side surfaces are synthetic on the seats. Again, you don't need to use anything special.

Dash and above doors and center console are all leather on the High Altitude.
