Which do you prefer in a car ?

Cloth seats are a lot cooler during the summer months (May-October) especially when it' 100+.

The problem is they will not provide cloth seats for middle or high trim cars, so I'm stuck with either leatherette or leather if I want certain safety and convenience features.

Cloth is not the "luxury" type of material for seats so you will not see it in other trims beside the base trim. I would not spend thousands of dollars for higher trim cars and then just put seat covers on the seats either

If you just want basic safety features check out various "packages" available for the trim, other than that i would just hold out until next year. More safety features are becoming the norm now a day so i would just give it time, i'm sure you can find the safety features like lane assist, blind spot monitoring, rear traffic aleart, brake assist, etc.. becoming standard for the base models in the next few years.

Rear view camera was only in luxury car years ago, now? it's standard on quite a few brands (even for base models)

Lastly, leatherette? isn't it just faux leather? vinyl seats? some call it "pleather" - plastic leather be sure to air it out for the first few weeks (to get rid of the strong odor) and choose light color seats + car. It's Arizona so i would go with white color for the exterior and light color for interior.
