Question 2018 F-Pace S - Interior Questions about what is actually REAL leather

Hello Everyone!

I'm new to the forum and have a few questions about a 2018 Jaguar F-Pace S model that I am looking at leasing.

I know the dashboard is Luxtec, however, I'm wondering what is ACTUALLY leather on the car. The F-Pace I'm interested in is an S model with Brogue interior. It says the seating surfaces are leather, however, it seems to me as if only the perforated part is actually leather. Can anyone fill me in on more information here?

I know the dashboard and center console surrounds are stitched Luctec, but what about the center armrest and the door armrests and inserts? Are the leather or Luxtec?

Any insight is greatly appreciated!

For the vast majority of cars "leather" surfaces, apart from the seats, are faux leather. That means the center console, the side panels, dashboard. The only exceptions are the steering wheel and if there is leather over the gear lever (which jaguar doesn't have).

Most people would not know the difference since many faux leather brands are becoming very good and high quality.

The XF models with real leather dashboards had a lot of issues with leather dash shrinkage, bubbling up and ruining the look of the car. An expensive repair. So you may be better off with a faux-leather on the dash anyway if it's less sensitive to sun and heat

From the lips of a Jaguar Product Specialist - all the surfaces in the F-Pace that have some foam backing - i.e. soft touch, are leather - that includes the dash, except for the strip just behind the windshield.
