I test drove an iX today with the leather seats and I have to say, it was a bit uncomfortable and stiff. Does anyone know if the fabric seats are a bit softer or more cushioned?

Interesting because most of the reviews have commented about how comfortable the leather seats were and mention how soft they were. Are you sure they weren't the sensatec. Most of the demos came with sensatec seats. I sat in the sensatec seats on my demo and they felt fine to me.

You know what, they were the sensatec - you’re right! Okay so now my question is, is the fabric more comfortable than the sensatec seats?

that makes sense, but I don't know about the fabric seats. I ordered the leather. The reviews I saw with the fabric seats were generally positive though some had the concern about not knowing how they would fare with the usual wear and tear and potential spills.

Same thing happened to me back then with other model, the test drive car did not have leather seats but another alternative material (don't remember what), and after I got home I started having all these doubts "leather vs fabric" until I realized what had happened :). You'd think they would let you know before you get in the vehicle huh? Now Fabric vs Sensatec it seems that the general consensus is 50/50 divided, I;d personally go with leather always but if that's out of the table I'd go with fabric but I don't have young kids (spills and others) so I don't worry about that.

I've read good things about the fabric seats, but see that only the Sensatec and leather offer ventilation. Does anyone have the fabric seats, and if so, how are they in hot weather?
