I have always wanted a car with leather upholstery and now I have one.
However- one facet of leather upholstery was unknown to me and that's how damn sweaty it would make me in the warm weather!
Cloth upholstery seemed much better in hot weather. Takes me back to the good old vinyl seats!
My brother-in-laws Hyundai has ventilated leather seats with active cooling which seems like a wonderful idea.
Anyone have any other suggestions for dealing with this issue?
(.....and no- I haven't got the heated seats on!)

The trusty beaded seat cover, as tested and approved by every cab driver I've ever seen :D

Thanks dolphinfriendly1012, that was my first thought. But they look so naff!
Hyundai's ventilated seat seems such a great idea I don't know why other manufacturer's haven't adopted it.

A bit hot when you first get in if you didn't park in the shade, I find that, in the UK climate at least, the air-con keeps the cabin suitably cool for the leather seats to not have this issue.
