Which Kia models come available with premium Nappa leather?
When you go looking for luxury with your new car purchase, one of the key elements of that upgrade is leather seating.
If it’s a Kia car you are in the market for, that means getting Nappa leather.
You are probably wondering the difference between that and other types of leather, and we are here to help explain it.
Some of you may be trying to track down an animal called a Nappa, as you assume it is some sort of animal hide. Save yourself the trouble, as it doesn’t exist!
The word Nappa is used to describe how the leather was treated and tanned, with the result being a chrome tanned smooth leather that is extremely soft to the touch.
Nappa leather is breathable and incredibly comfortable, which is why it is considered such an upscale option.

The Kia cars that have Nappa leather included take the comfort a step further by making it quilted.
