Different Types of Seat Covers

Want to change how your car seats look? You can always go with a great-looking Clazzio leather seat cover … but there are other types that you may want to peruse first.

There are certain things to keep in mind regarding the seat cover materials - the quality and comfort, whether they are sweat-proof, if they tend to have an odor, how they fit your car, if they block airbags. It’s a lot to think about and can feel overwhelming if you don’t take a step back.

That’s what we aim to do now - help you take a breather and consider your choice more at length. Here are just a few car seat covers:

Polyester Blends

These can include a mix of elastic in them to make them stretchier. If you want breathability, then you should make sure that there is mesh in certain parts, otherwise you risk getting an uncomfortable seat when the weather turns hot.

People like these too since they are often machine washable, which makes cleaning much easier than some other types of seat covers.


There’s just something about leather - it can exponentially increase your car’s cool factor. But if you have regular leather, it can become quite sticky when it is a hot summer day and you’re wearing shorts. Perforated leather can make a big difference.

You can always get different patterns when it comes to the leather. There is the smooth look, some diamond patterns … whatever your aesthetic is.


This is a very easy seat cover to clean - especially if you have kids. Spills are no longer going to be something that makes you hold your breath every time you have a drink in your car. On the other hand, it’s not as durable and it WILL get hot during those summer months. So pick it if you live in a colder climate.

See? You don’t have to spend forever debating. Just take a look at your preferences and then you can go shop for your car seat cover.

What it comes down to is picking the style that works best for you. Do you want something that is more functional or do you prefer to try to improve the look of the inside of your car? If you have done all your research and like your choice, then that is what best suits you … enjoy your ride.
