Default Seat Covers - Yes or No?

Deliberating whether to get art leather seat covers for my Creta. Its been a year since I bought the car, but somehow did not look at seat covers due to my earlier experience.

In my earlier car, a Rapid, I had installed Ovion art leather seats within a month of purchase since the original covers were of beige shade and my son was born in the same year, so I figured art leather would protect the seats from liquid spill etc and it did serve me well in that purpose. However, the driver seat, where you normally spend most of the time, did not really age well. In about 5 years the art leather had a very crumpled feel and it even had a few cuts here and there.

So when I bought my new car, I wasnt sure if I need to buy seat covers. And to make my decision even difficult, the stock seat covers are quite nice, grey and black, seem rather easy on the eye and blend well with the interiors. The only issue is that even a small water spill looks like a stain! Now, my son has turned 7, and I dont see any risk with fabric seat covers.
But the stain prone stock seat covers are making me rethink.

I put in after market seats in my Creta. Creates a world of a difference in looks. The grey ones are depressing. A light color — beige will make the car airy and roomier. Easy to clean and keep shinny. But they heat up like hell.

Anything in gurgaon would heat up quickly because of lack of covered parkings in the city. My car has covers too and is now a lot warmer on the inside.

I would suggest go for it.

As it's very difficult to maintain the fabric seat covers.
Plus I feel a good colour combination really makes the cabin stand out.

Have a look.

Be aware of one thing when fitting seat covers. If they even move in the least (bad fitment, generic cover which is the wrong size for the seat, shape not matching etc.), after a couple of years of use they will tear and fold. The advantage of an OEM fit seat is ideally it will only face wear and tear according to your seating position and will generally last longer

Where did you get the work done in Gurgaon?
