      Neal, really good first post. GM calls it sueded microfiber. While very nice, it is not alcantara.

        Alcantara is a specific manufacturer's brand name. Microsuede is GM's version of Alcantara. Essentially the same thing.

          Alacantara and microfiber are pretty much the same thing. The same ingrediants.a man made product. If you google it you can see the mix of the plastics that make it. Very durable and easy to clean.Suede would not last or be as durable and would soil very easily. Alacantera was invented by the Japanese back in the early 70s. Porsche calls it Alacantera . GM cals it microfiber.
