Hi, I sat in a base model and noticed the seats look like leather almost everywhere except the middle section. Does anyone know whether it is real leather or some kind of synthetic material? I'm trying to talk my spouse into getting the base model. I also don't like the suede material on the touring edition which may be hard to clean. The base model has a smoother material for those areas. The sales rep said that the touring models are more in demand. Is the touring worth the extra $$ ? I prefer to use my phone for navigation so I think it is a waste.
