Is it due to the amount of material needed for the Skoda as compared to the Baleno. I am not very sure on this but 3M outlets works this way for the Nomad mats where the pricing is different for different cars.

I guess, the work for a sedan would be more compared to a hatch. For example sedan would have rear arm rests which would lead to more material and labor consumption.

Should it cost 1.5K more? I don't have an answer.

Visited them yesterday, but the shop was closed. Tried calling Shivkumar's phone but it was out of coverage area. I guess it was not the day for my car to get dressed.

He's on Dussera vacation I think hence no coverage on his phone also.

Wait for him to return over the weekend I guess.

Yeah, I enquired from the nearby provisional store. No problem at all, everyone deserve a break and holidays.

Question Re: Seat Covers: Imperial INC (Bangalore)

I would like to get seat covers for my TUV3OO. Would they be able to add little lumbar and under-thigh support for the second row seat?

you will need to convince shivkumar to do the same as his philosophy is to keep it as close to original as possible. I got my seat covers done at Imperial and they did a great job. Details here (Red Dwarf – My 2016 Mahindra TUV300 T8 Manual)

I am thinking to go in for the PU or Luster Seat Covers. My car currently has Fabric on it. Before I jump in on this option I am looking for feedback from others who have gone down this path to share info on how much heat does this PU Leather generate? Does it make a huge difference as compared to Fabric?

Apart from the options in materials that Imperial has, does it make sense to look at any other type of artificial leather if one is concerned about the heat generated? Please advise.

PU / Art Leather heats up the most and Fabric heats the least.
There is no significant difference in heating between various Art Leather materials/ brands. They all heat up pretty badly in our hot weather conditions.
Alcantara & Genuine Leather falls somewhere in between Fabric and Art Leather.
If cool seats are your priority then nothing beats Fabric seat covers.

Below is the descending order wrt coolness of seat covers (what I have gathered from our forum)

Fabric > Alcantara > Genuine Leather > Art/PU Leather
