Vegan car buyer - can you get luxury without leather?

I've been driving a lovely old Rover 827 and had thought to replace it with a 4x4 due to weekly slightly rutted track usage. However I am not impressed with the boot space (too much height, flat space is more useful to me) and finish of many I've seen so far. I do like the Lexus RX, but don't think that comes with cloth upholstery (I'm vegan).

So, what would you recommend as a large-ish luxury-ish saloon/hatchback that would be available second hand without (much) leather?

You don't have to have leather in a BMW X3, though you will find that most have been specified with it. Buying any luxurious 4x4 without leather will be difficult. But without leather they fetch a lot less money at auction, so if you can get an auction buyer to look for one for you, that would make the best sense. Try: www.fairtradecars.net/
