Question Leather steering wheels

Can anyone tell me if the leather steering wheels fitted as standard in the Dynamic/Eleganza and GP/Sporting models are different?

In the Series 2 Grande Punto brochure, the Dynamic/Eleganza models are stated as having an "ELEGANT leather steering wheel", while the GP/Sporting range has a "SPORTY leather steering wheel".

I presume therefore that they are different steering wheels, but can anyone tell me how they differ visually? Thanks.

Re: Leather steering wheels

Dunno but mine is different from the active sport by having sort of pitted leather rather than straight leather.

Red food dye has been used for the red stiching, so if you can find some orange food dye.
