2012 seat covers?

I've been googling seat covers for my 2012 Elantra, but I can't seem to find any. It would be nice to have same color, tight fitted seat covers for my beige interior. Anyone know of any that fit nicely?

Wet Okle seat covers come to mind, you can buy direct from their website or from some dealers like auto anything. They are a bit expensive compared to the universal style but they are good.

Just make sure they are side-airbag compatible or else the airbag in the seat won't deploy properly or in such a way that it could injure you.

I ordered these wet okoles as soon as I purchased my car. I do a lot fishing and spearfishing so I needed something to protect the leather from my "wet okole" and the Hawaiian sun. I really like the look and feel of the covers. It even came with a center console cover. And yes, it does have the cut out for the airbags on the sides of the seat.

I ordered the standard style without any logos imprinted on them. We have a local Wet Okole store in town so they let me take their swatches out to the car so I could choose the color. I don't remember if the beige had a special name but it was the closest they had and it looks pretty good to me. I took my car back to have it installed when the order arrived.

Although I don't use it, the heaters in the seats would probably not work as well but I assume that would be the same for most seat covers.

Those are nice! I have cloth seats. Are those cloth or leather (the covers) if you could find out exactly what color those are I'd appreciate it, I need to order those. I wonder how hard it is to install them yourself. Those look really nice.

You might also want to look into adding the lumbar support option. That would be something of great interest.

Hi fellow local. Nice to see you back.

Those do look very nice. Did you get the lumbar support and to add with Marzipan's question, how was the install.

The covers are made of neoprene. It's the same material wetsuits are made of. Neoprene is very durable and completely waterproof. I had a pair of covers for my Nissan Pathfinder I purchased back in 2001 and they are finally starting to fall apart. The salesperson told me they should last 5 to 6 years but they lasted twice as long.

I can't remember if I ordered the tan, mocha, or taupe. I think it was tan but I'll call them to see if they can check their records for me.

Hi fellow local. Nice to see you back.

Hey silvergls, how's it going on the windward side? I passed on all of the optional stuff like the lumbar support, seat back pockets, graphics, and piping. I find the stock seats comfortable enough for our short drives on the island and the covers give it a little extra cushion, which I like. The lumbar support does sound pretty nifty though with the inflatable air cushion. Each option will also add to the starting price of $250 for the front pair.

Installation took them only about 10 minutes so I'm guessing its pretty easy.

One thing I forgot to mention about the center console cover is that you can't slide forward the top of the console when the cover is on. Not that I ever used that feature anyway.

It looks like you can order free sample swatches from their website to make sure you get the right color shade. It looks like the OP already did that. I saw a light grey and charcoal on their site. The cover style that I ordered came only as a two-tone, which would be black on the outside edges and the color you want on the inside. This was perfect since the Elantra interior is already two-toned with black being one of the colors.
