they get expensive and considering the type of person buying a spark, i would say it's not worth it.The seats are actually a leatherette vinyl material. Another option is to get leather seat covers. You can buy those at most auto shops.
Its synthetic leather if your wondering. The smell is normal and will be there for a bit just like the new car smell. The only thing I hate about leather seats is how hot it gets during the summer time when the sun is beating on them through the window. And in the winter they are freezing cold. Seat coolers and heaters would be nice but not in the spark that cost is too much to include.I have a couple questions about the leather used in the Chevy Spark. How is the leather quality? I was able to stick my head in one and it smelled. I think it was the leather. Is it worth buying?
