Seat covers are designed not only to protect a vehicle's upholstery from wear and tear but also to provide comfort to passengers and to a greater extent, help accentuate the interior's look and feel. The material from which a seat cover is need must meet the specifications or the conditions required by even the most discriminating of drivers. Custom-made car seat covers are readily available to meet different lifestyles and needs.
There are three types of seat covers that cater to different tastes, demands and budgets. The most expensive type is the custom fit seat cover which are made-to-measure seat covers that fit like they were factory-installed. It will not obstruct side-impact airbags and extends further coverage to the head set, ergonomic controls and seat belts. The second type is the semi- custom fit seat cover which is stitched according to most patterns of vehicle seats. Slightly cheaper but they also deliver excellent protection against a wide range of seating hazards. Lastly, the universal seat cover fits any high-back and low-back bucket seat irregardless of the vehicle's year, make or model. Easy to install and to store away, universal seat covers also offer reliable protection and comfort but should not be used on seats with side-impact airbags.
The right set of seat covers do not only serve as a perfect complement to a vehicle's interior but also spare the car owner from spending more for unnecessary reupholstering. Using a form-fitting, protective seat covers are just as good and there's no need to discard the original seats. Seat covers indeed give drivers and passengers the feeling of sitting on the lap of luxury.
