I enquired for the Dupont Tyvek Cover for my Swift Dzire, i was quoted a price of Rs.1699/- from Reliance Autozone.

Is the price Ok or is there a room for bargain, kindly let me know your views.

I got mine for my swift from MGA at 1700 I believe. Check out at MASS and then you can compare prices. And at MASS also, you can bargain

Hi, i enquired from MASS, they quoted Rs. 1090/- for MGA Cover, but i think that Tyvek will be worth going for a purchase, as the quality is leagues ahead of the other Covers which are available, my feedback is strictly based on the reviews and user posts on the TBHP and other sites, it can be the other way round also. The MASS people were not aware of the Tyvek brand, they told they have the MGA Covers only.


That is why i needed advice, whether to go for Tyvek or MGA, if you got the MGA Cover for your Swift in Rs. 1700/-, wanted to know was your cover a Tyvek or MGA ?

Got my Polco Tyvek car cover today from Reliance Autozone, Ambience Mall, Gurgaon

All Delhi and GGN guys can get it from there!

One word of advise though, take your car to their shop(ask the parking attendants and guards, they'll guide you) and check whether the cover is fitting or not!

None of the covers meant for hatches fit my i20!! Finally had to settle for a sedan spec 'C++' size cover!

Yes Sir. There are photos on this page as well as on the previous page to support the same. B segment is for Estilo and other tall boys. Needless to say we have to try it on before we pay.

@sohail99
Thanks for the pictures. It is clear now that only the fabric is Tyvec (from Dupont), and the cover is manufactured by Polco. There are other manufacturers as well. That is what my brother told me and I had mentioned in another post. The seams will still allow water to seep in, even though the material may be water proof.

Dupont do not make any car covers.
