Car covers help to create a beautiful interior. They protect the standard seat cover from dirt and damage for a long time. The assortment of car seat covers is very rich today; products of Russian and foreign manufacturers are widely represented on the domestic market. To make the right choice, you should heed the recommendations of our experts.
How to choose car covers
Types of covers. Several types of covers are used to protect car seats from dirt.
- The universal series fits the seats of different car brands. The buyer does not have to remove the overall dimensions, take photos of the interior, etc. The disadvantages of universal covers include a modest choice of colors and materials.
- Model products are sewn for specific car brands. Even at the design stage, the design features of the seats, the presence of armrests, airbags and head restraints are taken into account. The model covers fit very precisely on the chair and are easily fixed. But it is not possible to find such products for all cars.
- T-shirt covers are in steady demand among Russian motorists. They attract the attention of users with their low price, versatility, quick installation and removal. The experts consider a controversial appearance to the disadvantages, especially after several months of operation.
Materials. Car seat covers are usually made from several materials.
- Eco-leather is gradually replacing products from traditional types of fabrics from the market. The material is a layer of polyurethane foam covered with a durable film on the outside. Experts advise buying covers with eco-leather thickness of more than 1 mm. When choosing a perforated variety, an important factor is the accuracy of the holes, the same distance between them.
- Alcantara replaced natural suede fabric. The new material has a fine-fluffy surface, which should have one-sided orientation. When choosing, you should pay attention to the matte finish. The pile should be dense so that the base does not show through.
- Fabric covers remain the most popular among motorists, primarily in jacquard and crepe. Preference should be given to products with a dense and thick structure. The shine of the fabric is considered a sign of cheap synthetics. American velor is of good quality.
Fastening. All car covers are equipped with a mount for secure fixation to the seats. The most commonly used rubber bands and hooks. Eurohooks are distinguished by the maximum ease of use, these are fasteners sewn into elastic bands. Ordinary ropes are often used to fix the covers on the rear backs. The disadvantages of this fixing option include an unpresentable appearance and a tendency to snag in the luggage compartment.
