We've got a silver Pilot EX on the way and the main reason for that style and color choice was because of the gray interior and the fact that the leather was perforated:( . The solid leather would have been our choice but we went with the cloth with child number 1 :2: on the way. We've heard horror stories about everything under the sun getting stuck in those little holes in the leather.

My question is:

1) Is gray cloth the best color for kids or would fern or saddle be better?

IMO, yes. :17: The fact that I have it, is a moot point, of course.

I prefer saddle cloth because I'm just as hard on the seats as my kids. I've had vehicles in the past with grey interiors, and they seem to show more stains and dirt. The tan interiors seemed to clean up better than the grey. That's my experience.

It all boils down to what they're eating (spilling) back there, and your climate. Michigan winters TRASH the carpet with all the salt that tracks in.

:D

I would say a darker color is better. My Civic have tan cloth and always seems to get dirty easily. I had an old Ford Escort with dark grey (almost black) interior and the cloth and carpet never really seemed dirty, I usually just vaccumed. I'm always using carpet cleaner, cloth cleaner, etc to clean my Civic. Just my $0.02:D

Grey cloth is fine, but make sure that you scotchguard it.
I don't think you can go wrong with any of the Pilot interior colors.
Too dark of a color shows up every scratch and piece of lint and dust in the universe.
Leather can get very hot in the summer.
With a newborn an added bonus with a cloth interior is added sound deadening.
