Default Elegant Seat Covers

All,
Looking for seat covers for new Figo.
I wanted fabric one as I learnt that art leather heats up a lot in hot places like TN.

Have checked out in couple of shops and I have only one choice which is Elegant seat coveres and the costs are as follows.

Basic - 3000Rs
Mid Range - 4800Rs.
Velvet fabric, water resistance - 5800Rs.

Reliance auto mart gives 15% discount to this price.

Please let me know your experience with Elegant Fabric covers and Reliance Automart fitting if you have experienced.

I am planning to go for mid range one

I went to Kumar Agencies last week to enquire. They are the main distributors in Bangalore for Elegant.

Elegant now has four varieties of seats. Europa, Suede, Fabguard and Cotton towel type. I was able to click some pictures of the catalog they had. I'm uploading them so that it is useful to someone.

Europa is the velvet fabric which is scratch guard, water resistant and he said of the best quality.

One can also browse through the seat types in their site.

Dear Bhpians in Bangalore.
I plan to replace the carpet and get seat covers for my dad's ageing alto, any of you can throw light on some of these aspects?

1) What would replacing the carpet cost ? Any recommendation where whis could be done in Bangalore ( preferably west bangalore :-))

2) Is it a good idea to have a layer of sound insulating material below the carpet , will this make a difference to the NVH levels in the cabin?

3) For seat covers I'm planning art leather due to its ease of cleaning, durability and cost- comments and views on alternatives most welcome

4) I also plan to have OVRMS that come on the Alto K-10 installed- do these fit on to the old Alto800 ? What would a pair cost approximately

Look forward to your comments and inputs on the above queries. Thanks

dear gops2009,

As much as we'd love to help you out on this I'd also like to let you know that this query of your seems to be completely off-topic. We are discussing about seat-covers from Elegant auto here.


Guys I am really looking forward to check out these seat covers sometime soon. Probably will head over to few places to scout. I really want some new covers for my ride but the heat and sun has convinced me not to go for art leather or leather. Will keep you guys posted.

Got a set of Fabric covers for the Storme, from Elegant, through Auto Fusion. I did not want leather, and found the rexine - a.k.a art-leather to be bad. Hence the only option was Fabric.

Model: Chetak Gati Beige.
Cost: 7500/-
(Local shops had quoted 4000 for fabric cover made locally.

Elegant Seat Covers-elegant-rearseats.jpg

The covers are quite good, not the fit is not perfect - it is tight in some places. No stitching to the seats, but just tie at the bottom.

Was not able to see it before I ordered, but I had got positive feedback from @Simpleman. Took about 10 days after I placed the order with Auto-Fusion before they came in.

@Simpleman, thank you !

I want fabric seat covers for my new Dzire.
I have had good experience with Elegant fabric covers, but surprisingly not many dealers keep the elegant range in stock these days.
Can anyone tell me a shop in delhi ncr with a lot of range of elegant seat covers?
