Everyone,<p>Looking for some input. I am thinking of buying a C70 but wondered about the leather. I had an S60R with its butter soft leather and was not happy with its long term durability, while my XC70 from 2001 had hard leather that reminded me of a football--however after almost 9 years of use the interior looks new. I know the butter soft R leather will not fare that well.<p>Looking for nice looking longer term leather, so harder and durable over soft and fragile. Which is sovereign vs regular leather?<p>Also can I get the Cacao in non-soverign, it seems the website says yes, but the spec sheets say no.

Re: Sovereign Cacao Leather vs non Sovereign leather (funglenn)

I've had one MY06 C70 T5 with leather interior (sovereign hide wasn't available then) and now I have an MY09 C70 T5 with sovereign hide. This new one is soooooooooo much better! I've had it for a year now and it looks brand new! Plus it looks and feels a lot nicer! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Sovereign hide vs regular leather 1-0<p>BUT, you have to maintain the leather 2-4 times /year with leather care products.

Re: Sovereign Cacao Leather vs non Sovereign leather (T5_awd)

Does anybody have pictures of the C70 sovereign hide leather? From walking around the lot I think I saw upgraded leather in a couple of the other models, but the patterns are all different from the C70 anyways.
