You want to keep the interior of the car just as clean and nice-looking as the outside.

  1. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt.

  2. Use a damp clean cloth to wipe down dirty surfaces.

  3. Clean leather areas with a vacuum cleaner and a damp cloth with diluted detergent.

  4. Wipe leather surfaces with a soft dry cloth to remove all moisture.


You can clean synthetic leather in the same way. It’s a good idea to clean the cabin at least two times a year.
