Default Cool seat covers

Hi guys I am in search of good seat covers for my Corolla.
Requirements:
-The seat covers should remain cool in the sweltering heat in the North, so no Leather.
-Cloth material should be Cotton, Suede, Towel or some other material?
-Original seat upholstery should not get spoilt underneath.
-Seat covers should not fold or become uncomfortable over time.
-Should be easily maintainable, washable, removable, etc.
-No padding/foam required.
-Budget 500-3k, lower the better.

Thanks

Any suggestions for seat covers fellows!

What is the original material used in seat covers?

Also, suggest some good floor mats.

Is it possible to get a good Digital clock (with night vision/florescent)?

Also Is sun visor organizer (NOT CD holder) to keep documents available anywhere?

I searched both of them at many places - still no luck.

@sriturl - I am not sure if the 2din LCD systems from JVC/Pioneer have the GPS option. There are however some brands from china, i saw some on the team-bhp classifieds and on ebay.in.

@bhp1 . the factory fitted covers seem to do an excellent job as far as heat goes , even the rest of the requirements are met quite easily , just dryclean them once in 6 months , they last a long time too.

Otherwise go to a seatcover guy and buy any seatcover made of towel material , should suit your needs perfectly

The two accessories that are a must for any new car are:-
(1) Footmat- rubber ones to prevent the carpet from getting spoilt. Footmats must be fitted at the earliest possible opportunity.
(2) Seat covers- Quality, specifications and cost depends on the buyer's choice.But these are also a must to prevent the original factory fitted cover from getting spoilt.
Other than these there are hundreds of other accessories the purchase and fitment which all depend on personal preferences.

Yes, you are right !

Besides Foot mat and seat covers, body mouldings (body strip) also
must (imo) as this will prevent scratches from other cars -say another car parked near our car (close parking) opens the door and likley it will hit on our car body. We will not know who did this but only we will see this later.

There is something available from autographix. Its a 14 piece set, available for 1500 here in Kolkata. The strips are themselves transparent and very discrete. I am planning to get a set ASAP.

One of the essentials these days if battery goes flat is to keep Jumper Cables or even better to keep Jump Starters. As we know Auto Transmission Cars cannot be started by pushing the car like manual one. Please go through my review on Jump Starters in the below link.
