Car Interior - Black or Brown leather seats?

Just curious whats everyones preference for interior leather.

This vehicle offers 2, brown or black.

it seems brown is the trend "upscale" look ive seen in toyota, ford and german brands.

doesnt seem like either color would have an advantage in terms of keeping clean.

your preferences?

Black is always easiest to keep looking good, but dark brown is a close second and much more interesting and classy in my opinion.

WHY does it matter what everyone's preference is?
If you like brown, take brown. If you like black, take black.

It's up to you what colour you chose. After all you'll be driving the car. From the perspective of keeping the seats clean, I think black would be better. Black is also more neutral and will possibly be easier to sell down the road.

I like brown, it’s looks classier.
Although..
Jean stains will rub onto the leather.
But it is cooler than the black in the summer.

what is the exterior colour of the car in question?
Exactly, that should be the first question.

However, in a vacuum, I usually go for 'neutral' colors black/gray/white, so brown is not so hot in a car, esp w/ the fake wood (in any event, wood belongs on furniture, not vehicles, it's not a workbench ppl!). Ugh.

Then it's a no-brainer, i.e. black. Brown would look nasty w/ white, can't believe it's an option, usu some carmakers don't allow weird combos like that.

White exterior is the best and most commonly offered colour with brown leather.

No no no no no. White on red or white on black. White on brown is just awful.

I would personally choose black. My father who is a much older gentleman would choose brown.
