Default Your Leathery Bits...

After 5 years in the FJ, I'm considering changing my car for something second hand... I've found a car I like, but have some reservations as it is black with black leather interior.

What are black leather seats like in the Dubai weather? Do they get too hot? Would it be unbearable? My current car has black cloth seats, but they've never been a problem.

My car has dark leather seats and they do get warm when parked under direct sunlight. But I have never had my skin scalded if that is what you are asking Cloth seats do not retain as much heat, but leather seats were uncomfortable only for the first minute or so (after being parked - never an issue when driving).

Not the best with shorts in mid summer if parked in sun for a while but generally ok not worth ruling out a car you like because of it
