Default Leather Seats for SX4

Hi all,

This is my first post on this forum, but after reading what's in here I have no doubt that this is the right place for anybody who has got any affinity with any thing that moves on wheels.
I have recently purchased a Maruit SX4 lxi without the leather seats for my mother (through Maruit's NRI scheme) and after reading through various posts here I have come to know that the only drawback with the car is its seats.
Could anybody please let me know if there is any good after market make of leather seats for SX4 available.
Keep up the good work BHPians.
Cheers.

Any good Auto accessory store will stock seat covers for the SX4 in a variety of price ranges in colours that match. If budget is not an issue, go for Stanley pure leather; quite simply the best. Stanley also offers you the option of art leather, which will be a lot cheaper than pure leather.

Yes, they'll be fine. In fact, PU/Art Leather gets more heated than pure leather seat covers. I'm more concerned about the monsoon. Leather and water don't go well together... but as long as you're careful, things should be ok.

I face the same problem with both my cars here (in U.K) , the weather being so unpredictable, but there are so many DIY leather care products available off the shelf.
Does any body know of any good brand of leather care products available in India?

Nowadays, a lot of good imported brands are available E.g. Turtle wax, Armor All etc. Even Stanley has their own leather cleaner. India isn't backward anymore; sab kuch milta hai bhai.
