Can anyone recommend a good cleaning product what will remove food, scuff marks etc on the leather area of the part leather seats that are fitted to the standard 2014 Sportiva Nav?

Removing/reducing scuff marks and cleaning may require two different products: A cleaner and a conditioner.
However, I've used a wide range of products as there are so many available. A good and inexpensive option is the Meguiars Gold Class range which combines both a cleaner and conditioner in one:

Buy Meguiar's Gold Class Rich Leather Cleaner & Conditioner from Meguiar's UK

Readily available from the likes of Euro Car Parts, Halfords, Amazon, eBay e.t.c.

Conditioners are often used for real leather, not for synthetic.. Cause synthetic leather do not absorb the conditioner like real leather.. If your seats are real leather ( I dont think so) use a cleaner and then a conditioner to keep them smooth..
My seats are synthetic leather and I didnt use a conditioner up to now, but If yours are synthetic too and if you have a good conclusion with conditioners please write it down here and I could use a conditioner too...

Not sure were Romeo68 gets is info from but I don't think Alfa would get away with calling fake leather, leather on their sales brochure, website and sales material. Infact this is the first time I've heard it called fake leather. The thing I like about the part leather seats is that the area that isn't leather is the seat and back so you don't have crazy hot seat in summer and freezing ones in winter for your back and bum.

Just ordered some Meguiars so will see how I get on. Like the idea of the built-in conditioner.

I find it hard to believe Alfa would put fake leather in their cars!!
The expression has long been leather "facing surfaces" . In other words the bits you don't come into contact with are plastic. That leather is very heavily treated for automotive use anyway being coated for the extreme use.

I agree. That's why I went for the cleaning solution with built in conditioner as the leather is so hard so don't think it will harm it.
