Cars with red leather interiors are an acquired taste. You either like it or you don’t.
For some people, it’s bold, stylish, and sophisticated.
But for others, it’s a bit too showy.
In this article, we look at 7 popular cars with red leather interiors.
1. Toyota Camry
Sitting at the top of the best-selling cars in the US for 19 straight years, the Toyota Camry is one of the most popular passenger cars ever made.
With a $25,295 starting price, it’s okay to keep your expectations low. But the Camry is surprisingly stacked. It’s got a roomy cabin, composed handling, a powerful V6 engine, and red leather seats!
If you want red leather seats, you’d have to go for the XSE V6 trim. It’s a beautiful cockpit red interior with leather-trimmed seats that gives the interior a sporty look. The XSE V6 trim should cost you about $5000 more, but it offers more features including paddle shifters.
2. BMW 3 Series
The BMW 3 Series is a luxury sports sedan that offers comfort, heavy tech features, and impressive gas-powered engine options.
The BMW 3 Series also offers 26mpg city/36mpg highway fuel economy, and modern interior design and was recently named the best medium luxury car.
The BMW 3 Series comes in lots of beautiful interior colors. Amongst them is the extended Fiona Red leather interior. It’s a quality merino leather that gives off the luxury vibe we’ve come to expect from BMW. But if the Fiona red is too bright for you, the darker tacora red vernasca is another option you may want to choose.
3. Lexus NX
Spacious, stylish, and packed with many driver-assistance features, the NX is a quality luxury SUV from Lexus. The name NX stands for “Nimble Crossover” and the compact luxury SUV was named Britain’s Best Hybrid Car in 2020.
If you need red leather seats on your Lexus NX, you’d have to go for the NX F Sports trim. It offers a Circuit Red NuLuxe interior that gives the NX a truly sporty look. The Nuluxe leather is synthetic leather that looks and feels like real leather but doesn’t require as much care. Basically, it’s leather that is lightweight, eco-friendly, and easy to clean.

6. Kia K5
The Kia K5 is a sleek 5-seater family sedan that was formerly called the Kia Optima. Despite the family sedan tag, it’s a classy vehicle with decent fuel economy, a modern interior design, and powerful turbocharged engines.

The Acura ILX is Acura’s first gasoline-electric hybrid car. It’s a subcompact sedan with a classy exterior design, roomy seats, and a stylish interior. The ILX is a luxury brand that’s just as impressive albeit cheaper than other small premium cars like Mercedes Benz A-class and Audi A3.
The ILX offers a host of beautiful interior options. One of them is a sporty red leather interior with Ultrasuede trimmed seats. The standard trim offers synthetic leather upholstery but you can get real Milano leather when you upgrade to the premium trim. However, the A-spec Sports trim is the top-tier trim level. It offers a combination of perforated Milano leather and Ultrasuede trimmed seats.
8. Acura TLX
Just like the ILX, Acura TLX is a classy luxury sedan that offers all the features you’d expect from a small premium car but for less money. If you wanted an Acura but with more cargo space, better performance, and more tech features, the Acura TLX is the better choice.
