Will read up on the two suggested names/vendors as well.
Update: Got in touch with Shivakumar from Imperial leathers and made my order. Thanks for the suggestions. I ordered the Napa version for the covers. Car is to be fitted this Saturday. Will post pictures once done.
Again - Should I remove the OEM fabric cover or leave them in? They don't smell but are pretty stained - I think removing and discarding them would be better since I wont have the need for them anymore - might fit better and even if I wanted to refit the OEM ones I cant do it on my own, so.

What was the final quote? Are they also doing door cards/arm rest (I am looking for getting it done on my car)?

Do share the final pics.

I suggest you remove it since you mentioned they're pretty soiled. As such, we the new covers on top, you will never use the old original ones.

He agreed with 13K for Napa. I think they do the doors - I am getting the front and rear seat arm rests as well within that price.
Thanks for the suggestion - I have told him I will get the OEM covers removed and it seems he will slightly alter the measurements depending on whether you keep OEM covers or not.

Will share pictures after saturday.

Got the car seat covers fitted today. It was supposed to be tomorrow but due to weekend curfew, Shiva made it possible today.
Nice person, very humble and professional. His factory people are also very nice. You can go and see their work the whole time if you are interested. I would highly recommend this place. Though it was far for me (~25 kms), I feel it was completely worth the effort and money.
Shiva even suggests things for you even though you might not have asked for it (since he has made so many, he knows what combinations work and what doesn't). Highly recommended

My i20 2021 model has art leather seat covers called "leatherette" by the Hyundai folks. It's very uncomfortable and I get a sweaty back even with AC on.
My previous car had fabric which was nice and later I fitted it with natural leather on touch surfaces which looked and felt fabulous.
So on the lookout for suitable seat covers, I had a look at elegant fabric covers. They range in price from 10 to 16k. And gave pu type of material on sides and back. Didn't like them so much.
Visited the Saddle studio near Bangalore Club yesterday. Wow. Superb finish on all their displays.
Roughly for my car they quoted approximately 20k for "microfiber" seat covers. This is artificial leather but very breathable.
The natural leather in touch areas was about 40 odd k, while full leather seat covers was 60 k.
I was kind of inclined towards the microfiber ones but have not heard much about them, so a bit hesitant to go ahead.
Anyone with experience with this microfiber covers?
Some pics. The yellow hanging material is microfiber. Rest is all natural leather.

This may sound strange but I am looking for seat covers for new Creta and really liked the leather seat covers in Seltos HTX IVT model. Does anyone know if we can get the similar covers made for Creta?

Hi all, what's your experience with Hyundai original seat covers (art leather) for Creta that are sold by the dealer?
- Is it worth going ahead?
- Are those bucket type? Does the seat have to be cut to fit them?
- Are custom made seat covers better?

I had a very good experience with Honda original seat covers in my Jazz. They were great quality and a perfect fit. So would like the same experience on my new Creta.

The second and third row of my Alcazar seats have some sort of velcro finish in the rear of the seats to which lots of my pets hair gets attached and removing it is very difficult. Is there any protection we can provide to the seats?

I have the same thing: I sweat a lot and sometimes even with AC on, I'm bound to get sweaty back. Maintaining beige fabric seats is getting really difficult. Lots of blackish marks are creeping up. 3M shampoo wash is also not so helpful.

Did you find some suitable material? I guess any sort of leather material will not last long because of sweat right?
