Affordable car with leather interior?

I've been looking for a new car and it seems like you always have to select the most expensive package in order to get a leather interior. Are there any affordable new vehicles with a leather interior? I'm looking for a hatch or a wagon, but would take a CUV/SUV if it's a more affordable option.

From my experience, you need to opt for the highest trim to get leather upholstery in economy brands. Leatherettes don't count.

I like Bentley Bentayga because $20K down and $2K/month for 36month is affordable to me. lol.

Give us a range what your affordability is please.

Jetta Highline @ $25K starts to have leatherette. Civic Touring @ $27K is where leather starts to show up as well. Those are pretty reasonable starting points.

I don't think there would be a car under $25K that doesn't have fabric seats. (Well MSRP anyway)

Whatever hatchback you decide on within your budget range, bring it to a professional upholster and have a Katzkin kit install for $<2000.

Sorry, I meant to indicate I'm wondering what the cheapest options are.

Firstly the leather in majority of cars is shit, its urethane coated and feels like cardboard. This goes for entry level MB/BMW etc as well. I'd take fabric interior over shit leather unless it's dyed leather.

Probably easier to just have it reupholstered.
