So I'm thinking about how to protect my shiny new Sportline interior from

a) my kids
b) my mum's dogs
c) future me who starts to stop caring!

And I am thinking about seat covers. I note the SkodaParts website does not have bespoke seat covers for the Enyaq.

I don't want generic ones which don't fit properly. I want high quality ones for the front and back seats which are bespoke for the Sportline

Does anyone have any recommendations of providers you have used before? A Google shows a wealth of options but some look shaky in terms of quality and fit.

I find even the fitted ones don't fit properly.
You must ensure that any seat covers do not cover any air bags in the seat sides (I'm presuming there are).
I know many who recommend Capital Seating as some of the best but while they seem decent quality, I never like the look personally.

A friend of mine has these in his RS and they are actually very nice even though they are cheap and generic.

My dog is the reason I went for leather seats. :D

My (six) dogs only ever go in crates in the boot, so there's no danger of them muddying the seats. However I usually go for leather or Alcantara seats because the dog hairs don't weave in like they do on fabric seats ;)

Maybe as an alternative to covers, it might be worth looking into surface treatments (ie Scotchguard type products) for the seats so that they are less likely to get dirty, or are at least easy to keep clean?

If you do want a coating for Leather and Fabrics, I recommend Gtechniq Smart Fabric AB V2. Excellent and lasts at least a year on a dirty daily.
I've had it on the interior of my garage queen for 4.5 years and its still showing signs that its alive and repels water.

Yep, I was talking dog hair too, I always thought having a short-haired dog like a beagle would negate this problem, but nope.

I used to use a back seat hammock, but found dog hairs getting everywhere, even though the hammock covered the seats.

For the last couple of year, Katie has gone in the boot (secured high-sided dog bed and tethered harness), but I found that dog hairs still getting into the fabric of the seats.

Hence leather seats on the new car. When it arrives, I may revert to the hammock, as I quite liked the solution, and it frees up the boot. Although with the space in the back, I think her dog bed might even fit in the footwell, behind the front passenger seat. But if it doesn't it isn't the end of the world.

It's usually just me and the dog in the car, sometimes a front-seat passenger. Although I'll sometimes have people in the back seats, that tends to be just for special days and holidays, and I can take them as they come.

On a related note, I've never understood how a dog who can leap up and down off a sofa all day, or even a dining table, given the motivation (!) finds it just soooo haaaard to jump into a boot or back seat. ("no I am not carrying you")

While waiting for my Enyaq I had to take our GSD to the vet, only car available was my MR2, that is not an experience I want to repeat :lol:
