black is the best and add some red or dark blue inserts for some contrast. dont go for beige it will really look out of place.

i agree with jaggu,if you want a sporty look,go for red on the sides and center perforated silver grey its an amazing combination.[all this only if its genuine leather,not art leather plsssss]

Default Best color of Seat covers for a white Swift

Hey ...thanks Jaggu n designN.....love the idea of red on the sides and center perforated silver grey....

Any idea on how much Stanley would charge for the work?...i figured he did a palio for 13.5 for seatcovers,door pads, gear cover n the Steering wheel.....
Would appreciate if any inputs of G-Sport n how much it might cost..

PS:Asking for too much...any pics would be great...

If you want to keep it simple..just go for the same colour as the interior..Maybe its dark grey!!

Grey will surely look good, its not the colour of the exterior, its the colour of the interiors with which you match the colour of the seat covers.

Black with red inserts if you want it a little sporty, or black with grey inserts if you want it a little more sober.
You could have the outer part made of good quality art leather, and the centre part (which comes into contact with the passenger) pure leather, maybe perforated.
Should look killer

i'd suggest good quality black leather seat covers with double or triple stitching using white/red/blue/yellow (basically your choice of color for the stitching) nylon threads.

cheers

A Jet black interiors will got very white exteriors. I guess there are lot of black in the swifts interiors, atleast i remember seeing them a lot on dash. So that will also match well. Also yes, please don't go beige.

And do use the perforated leather. Its adds to the look. I have been dreaming about full leather interior for quite some time. Lets see...

Are you serious??? Red should be good. I am not sure about the rest of the colours you have mentioned.

Just because most swifts have black interior should not prevent you from getting it done black.

Black seats will go just fine with your white swift.

Black leather, perforated center and maybe greyish-white stiching if you want to create a contrast. Do try to match up the steering as well.

Black with white inserts is the best combination if you dont like to be flashy else you can try Black with Red or Red with White.
