After owning an sel fusion with leather seats for a year , it dawned on me that there really isn't much real leather in the leather seat option. The interior still looks good despite the fact, but Ford could have gone a bit further with a bit more leather IMO. Seems like the only leather is in the contact surfaces of the seat, two strips on the bottom section and two strips on the vertical section of each seat. The dimpled centers are not leather (which I realized immediately), and either are the bottom sides,upper sides and rear sides. The head rest doesn't seem to be leather either. On the rear bench seats very little real leather to be found there as well. For the price of the leather seat option you'd expect a bit more of the real stuff. The difference between real leather and faux leather sections becomes more apparent as the car ages.
