MB-Tex Upholstery

So, just what is MB-Tex? MB-Tex upholstery is a textile created exclusively for Mercedes-Benz, and this innovative material combines the best of easy-care cloth and luxurious leather. MB-Tex is made of a specialized vinyl that resembles leather, but it’s easier to maintain and more durable. And due to its stylish finish, many Shelbyville drivers prefer it. We recommend taking a few test drives to see which material appeals to you, and our team at Mercedes-Benz of Louisville is ready to highlight the benefits.

MB-Tex vs. Leather

So, why choose MB-Tex over leather? One of the biggest advantages to MB-Tex upholstery is the convenience. 

  • Easy Care: While leather needs to be cleaned and conditioned very carefully, MB-Tex is far easier to manage. This can help you avoid the staining and accelerated depreciation that plague leather interiors. In fact, all you need to maintain MB-Tex is a simple vinyl cleaner, available at your local department store. 
  • Durability: Leather often develops cracks and dryness, but MB-Te does not. Even if completely untreated, you’ll have the same beautiful finish in 20 years – whereas leather is far less forgiving. This can also be a huge asset in terms of resale value.
  • Style: MB-Tex may not be offered in quite as many hues as traditional leather, but you can outfit your car in several stunning neutral colors to showcase the clean lines and elegant design of your Mercedes-Benz cabin. Plus, you can maintain that gorgeous look with minimal fuss.
