That livery looks amazing; it really suits that body! I hope that Arriva haven't specified their standard Civic V0/Civic V3 seating because the seats that were on WX61 HSL (the demonstrator which went to Green Lane depot) were comfortable and made the already-smooth-ride even better.

I overheard people commenting on that EcoCity during my work experience at Liverpool Council and they were positive reviews - warm interior and a comfortable ride. They should improve the 1/2 - the services which normally have several "unfit-for-service" buses on them! LOL
The North West Bus Blog has just added a picture of 5000 at the Euro Bus Expo, from what I can see, it has leather seating, unsure of the type though.

Looks like DP Civics to me!
But yes, they are that E Leather stuff, im told will be a similar spec to the X1 Pulsars.
A photo of the interior has appeared on Flickr:

They are indeed a similar spec to the X1 Pulsars, and VERY dull and depressing as well.
The rearmost windows look a bit porthole-ish
generally looks ugly and cheap would look better in standard arriva livery rather than the metroshutle 300 livery (well similar livery
not keen on the full rear LEDs either
The interior does look a bit drab. I actually think fabric seats would have looked better and brightened it up a bit!
