The sports seats are ( faux leather & alcantara ) surprisingly comfortable & supportive. Visually more appealing than the leather older style seats, so more popular it seems.
In the remote possibility, I use the term loosely, :oops: :oops: that the seats are the same style leather I’ll be putting another order in

Well the brochure is valid from 26th May 2021 so I think they are now offering the specific R seats in leather not just the R Line seats in lieu of them.
Guess VW are trying to cover all requests.
The R seats in leather will be nice as I have never liked cloth seats in any car.
The R leather option should have been available from the start.
If they are doing so then this will be a nice option along with the Akrapovic exhaust for those wanting to get the rare options.
Can’t see many going for the Akrapovic exhaust which will make it a very desirable option.
scorpion. They are the same style as the R-line but the bolsters on the R leather seats are carbon print effect.
I too prefer leather, but the distinctiveness of the visual impact is enhanced by the taller proper R seats, albeit fabric

The brochure dated 25/02/21 has the same wording - but I've only ever seen pictures of the "standard" leather seats, not the integrated headrest ones...

If that video is the leather option then I would be disappointed.
Better to have the R seats in cloth then get a really good auto upholstery company to re trim them in a suitable style.
R Line seats in an R Line yes fine but not in the top of the range R.

Spoke to the dealer just now and still no further forward with the leather clarification, at least adding Harman Kardon also adds the variable boot floor to house the sub
Black pack now also available in other countries by the look of it!

Don't think the floor is really 'variable' just higher to allow for the sub. It does make the floor in line with the folded rear seats though which I think is a plus...

Yes, I agree, slightly tidier finish IMO and as you say gives a flat load area if rear seats are down.

I think it's pretty poor that it doesn't have the variable floor as standard! As the 'flagship' model in the range it should really have all the bits!
