Alacantra......who owns you?


Recommended Posts

Then how come their promo stuff uses the word alcantara for seats?




Hmmm. I hadn't noticed that. My 2005 STi made explicit mention of escaine as the blue suede-like insert in the seats. I wonder why they switched for 2007. Did the 2006 STi boast Alcantara or escaine? I notice the 2007 model STI, as well as the Spec. B as pointed out, shows Alcantara.


And it appears the correct spelling is ECSAINE. It is made by Toray industries out of Japan.
