Definitely Artificial Leathers gets heat easily.
In my Waggie,I am having Arti. leather seats and during sunny days i can feel the heat even with AC.
But it's not so in my Linea having stock fabric seats.
But the best part in Arti. leathers is,
easy to maintain/clean and feel luxuries.

Thanks Aks

Given your viewpoint above, I am strictly contemplating artificial leather.
I have a covered parking at home and mostly leave in the evenings from work (open parking) for the most part.

Another point to note is that I have a HP petrol pump where I live. They do an excellent job of interior shampooing for Rs.175 today. The seats, dash etc come out smiling clean and fresh. Hence all the more reason I am deterred to purchase Artificial leather.

Still confused though coz the tight fitting seat covers look awesome!!!

If you can get a good fitter who will fit the seats properly, without any sag or wrinkles, that should seal the deal for you. If you do not find a good fitter, it is better to stick with the stock ones as, in my view, sagging upholstery spoils the "feel" inside.

My black Punto is yet to arrive but I have been contemplating on whether to buy black/red combination seat covers.

Suggestions welcome
At times if parked direc6tly in the sun then it gets pretty hot - but ive never not been able to sit on them.

You need to put the AC on full balst to cool themdown at times

Somehow the Maserati design makes you whistle every time you watch it. I don't know if the face-lifted Punto (think looks more like a Bravo face) is going to tug at the heart same way. Nice pics Crimson.

Waking up this thread after a long time .

I bought my punto in 2009 Dec. Have been facing the clanking front suspension issue since the beginning and the SA's at TASS have not been able to rectify it (leave alone even identifying). I just been living with it.

The Sound though has increased in recent times. I want to go to TASS with a solution so that they can rectify it. Let me know. thanks.
