What is the difference between Alcantara®/leather upholstery and Leather-trimmed upholstery on the Subaru WRX?

Asked by brittspace (47points) June 23rd, 2011

My dog sheds a lot. A LOT. I’m picking a leather interior to a car in order to make clean-up easier.

Looking over different models of the Subaru WRX, the WRX Limited has “Leather-trimmed upholstery” while the standard WRX STI has “Alcantara/leather upholstery.”

What’s the difference between these? Which has the best coverage? Which is easiest to clean? The word “trimmed” leads me to believe not all surfaces are covered and some are fabric. Is this true?
