View Full Version : Where is the leather in Premium package.

I am trying to figure out if the door armrest area is leather or fake?

Is the steering wheel completely wrapped in leather or is some of it fake?

Are the seat backs leather or fake?

Is the center storage compartment armrest cover leather or fake?

The only mention I see of leather on the sticker is:

"Front and Rear Leather Appointed Seats"
"Leather Trimmed Steering Wheel/Shift Knob".

That's interesting. While a salesman was telling me the difference between Infiniti and Murano he said "Infiniti uses real leather." He also said the wood trim was real wood instead of paointed plastic as well as the aluminum was real aluminum instead of painted plastic.

Made me wonder what Nissan uses. He sold Nissans for three years before
moving to Infiniti.

I asked on another thread if the leather on the seats was all leather or just the seat and back. Never saw any replies. Many "Leather" furnitures are actually just leather on the seating area.

Is this another "Only her hair dresser knows for sure." Showing my age here.

I think its a good rule of thumb to just say in most cars that have leather interiors uses real leather where it comes in contact with your body. So I think everything you listed is most likely real leather. The seat backs, probably not (the actual back of the front seat).

And the Murano does use real leather in the same places also, but probably the same quality as in an Infiniti.
