You’re in your car so often you’ve considered getting your mail rerouted there. So why are you still sitting on those factory seats? You deserve better.
A new set of seat covers can not only keep your original vehicle seats in better condition, but increase the comfort of your daily drives in an instant. And you don’t have to spend an arm and a carborator to get your hands on some nice seat covers that look like they belong on custom Benz.
At AutoAnything, we believe it should be easy to upgrade your ride with interior essentials. So, let’s talk about what to look for in custom car seat covers, why they matter, and which suede and leather car seat covers are highly rated by our customers.
Features of a High-End Car Seat Cover
What makes a car seat cover go from ordinary to “belongs in a car commercial”? Well, a few things. There are plenty of every day car seat covers that will hide your seat tears and keep coffee stains from hitting the factory foam.
But here are some qualities that take seat covers to the next level:
- Chic fabrics. Leather, leatherette, and suede are all the types of fabrics you’d expect to see in a luxury sedan or sports car. When you introduce them to your commuter car, you look like you’ve been somewhere.
- Custom fit. There are universal seat covers that will fit most vehicles. And then there are custom car seat covers. The latter fit your seats like a glove, guaranteed to stretch around every corner perfectly and stay in place. We don’t need to say it twice: custom seat covers make your car’s interior look way more expensive.
- Precision-cut patterns. Durable stitching and unique seat cover patterns also add a whiff of wealth to your vehicle. They look factory made and give your seats some personality.
Is a New Car Seat Cover Worth the Investment?
Sure, you want your car to look and feel like it belongs to someone with a little cheddar to spend. But is it a smart decision? Or just a vain one?
Hear us out. Adding new custom car seat covers that make you feel wealthy can actually be good for you and your car in tangible ways. For instance:
- Nice car seat covers are cheaper than total reupholstery. If you have stains, rips, or fading on your factory seats, you can take them in to be reupholstered. But that’s not exactly inexpensive.
Reupholstering an entire seat can cost up to about $500 dollars (or more!), depending on your vehicle and the chosen fabric. New seat covers cost a fraction of that to achieve a similar result — seats that are more comfortable and look brand new.
- Preserving seats can protect your car’s overall value. Leather seats hold their value better than many other amenities. And even if your factory seats are made of another material, most buyers want seats that don’t look overly lived in or torn up.
You may be able to snag a few hundred dollars more for your trade-in if you maintain the factory seats, which means your seat covers will pay for themselves in the long run.
- Making your car more comfortable is vital self-care. It turns out, taking care of yourself doesn’t just involve mud masks and massages. According to a Gallup Poll, people with a daily commute of 90 minutes or more have a 1 in 3 chance of experiencing recurring neck and/or back problems. Commutes are also associated with more worry, and other health issues.
You may be upgrading your overall health by adding seat covers with better cushion and improved fabrics that improve your commute and offer more support. And you
