Yes, no? The coating or material is supposed to resist heat up, or least not get as hot.
That is true if you opt for leather, but I'm not sure the leatherette has the same coating on it. I have leatherette, not leather as I said above. Maybe someone who has black leather can comment on whether the seats still get hot. I would think black is going to absorb some heat whether the seats are coated or not.
