the seating material is called Syntex. Not sure pleather is the right word for it. It feels pretty close to leather, and may actually last a little better. too early for me to tell, but it feels and acts like leather as a seating surface.My dealer started getting '22s in about 2 weeks ago. I was aiming for the first '22 Touring Special Edition they got, but was a little out of reach, financially. I ended up with the last '21 LX. They got in 3 more '22s last week, with one being an EV.
The '22s have minor packaging tweaks. The Touring Special Edition no longer offers leather, but has pleather instead.
