    Comparison

    This was one of the toughest comparisons and reviews we have done on a product, the top 3 car seat covers were very hard to differentiate between, finally, we ended up on deciding on the Seat Saver Waterproof Front Car Seat Cover.

    This came down to price in the end, it performed the same as the two Town and Country Car Seat Covers but was slightly cheaper. It is fully waterproof, colour is black so suits more car interiors but also has the choice of 3 other colours. It is very easy to get on and off and felt like a top quality product when fitting it and using it. Importantly it doesn't interfere with side airbags. It was really easy to fit to our car, but that is small, if you are after a large front car seat cover, we'd recommend the Town and Country options.

    The two Town and Country covers were just as good but cost a little bit more to purchase, great stretchy seat covers and if you have big van seats or a 4x4 car, these Town and Country should fit your seats better.

    The sakura came in last as it was a very thing nylon material, not completely waterproof and quite flimsy, didn't stay in place all the time. If you are using it as a work cover and want to keep paint off your seats or just putting it on your seat on the odd occasion and don't wish to spend much then this could be the one for you.

    Fit

    Fitting this Seat Saver car seat cover is very quick and easy.  It can be wrapped over seat and can be easily whipped off too. The Seat Saver car seat cover has a good snug fit at the front of the seat as well as covering the headrest however the material hangs over the back quite loosely with no way to secure it. 

    Technology

    The hard wearing nylon fabric is waterproof with a specific rubber lining underneath. Due to the rubber means there is no slipping when sat on the seat cover.  

    Keeping Clean

    This is machine washable but being nylon and hard wearing you will be able to wipe this car seat cover clean if you do get any liquid or dirt on it. The rubber lining underneath keeps the material waterproof.

This is why we have ranked it our #1 car seat cover, combining the cost with the job that it does, it perfectly protects your car seat whilst still being very affordable.

    Cons

    Fit

    The Town and Country car seat cover fits over the top of the headrest and around the bottom of the car seat. It's a universal car seat cover so should fit most cars seats, both front driver and passenger seat. They are of a stiff material but only the headrest and bottom trim around the car seat are stretchy, to help with fitting it on to the seat. It uses velcro straps to make sure that the back of the seat is surrounded and that the seat cover stays on.

    Town and Country Seat Cover

    Material

    This is made of a strong, heavy duty nylon/polyester type material which is 100% waterproof. At first glance, it is very strong and all seams are made very well and looks like it would last for years from heavy use.

    Use

    Using the car seat cover by Town and Country is great, it can be a little slippery when sat on it at first depending on what clothes you are wearing but it feels that it will last a very long time. Spilling liquids on it, rubbing dirt in to it and even putting a wet dog on it will all be fine.

    Extras

    This car seat cover has extra space for side air bags in your car. This is a great improvement on other lesser car seat covers.

    Pros
    • One of the best looking car seat covers we've seen
    • Very heavy duty, if it fits your car seat it should last years
    • Waterproof, so fine for wet pets, wearing a wetsuit or from other forms of working outdoors
    • This car seat cover is machine washable so you can keep it looking like new
    • This will work with side airbags in your car
    Cons
    • Doesn't fit the biggest of car seats
    • Can be a bit slippery to sit on, depending on your clothes and seat position
    Verdict

    One of the best looking and hardest wearing seat covers we have reviewed. It looks great and we are sure it will last years. It's colour is of a light grey/light blue so may not suit all car interiors.

    Fit

    The Town and Country Front Car Seat Cover uses velcro stretch panels that allow it to fit snuggly around even larger car seats. The air bag compatible model also accommodates seats with inbuilt airbags. 

    Technology

    Made of a thick robust and heavy duty nylon that suits even industrial and agricultural driving needs. 

    Keeping Clean

    Although this is not machine washable, giving it a wipe with a damp cloth would not be a problem but I would not advise using sprays or specialist cleaning liquids as this may ruin the material on the car seat cover.

    Other Notes

    Unlike a lot of seat covers this one also covers the back of the seat too. 

    Pros
    • Waterproof
    • Robust material less likely to tear
    • Suitable for larger seats in 4x4s and Vans with the velcro panels
    • Good for airbags in the side of a seat with Air Bag Compatible model
    • Covers back of seat so that the seat is fully protected
    • Comes in three sizes: Standard, Air Bag Compatible and Large
    • Comes in 4 different colours: Blue, Green, Grey and Black
    • Not available for Amazon prime next day delivery however able to have free delivery with prime membership
    Cons
    • Good thickness however not as stretchy as could be. 
    • Although they state they are universal, there are some bigger car seats that it won't fit
    • Designed more for bigger cars with larger seats
    • The extra features can be a little fiddly
    Verdict

    This cover is built to last with a strong robust material and well designed features. We would call it one of our top rated products.

    Fit

    Putting this Sakura car seat cover on your chosen front car seat, driver or passenger couldn't be easier. This is a universal car seat cover but would suit smaller and medium sized seats. It fits over the top of the headrest of your car seat and around the edges of the seat bottom.

    Technology

    This seat cover states it is hard wearing but the nylon like material which it is made from is not the thickest. It looks and feels slightly thin but we are sure it should last quite a while as long as the seems hold.

    It is water resistant and will take spillages but I would not trust it with a soaking wet dog or wearing a wetsuit which is wet.

    Keeping Clean

    This is not washable in a machine but will happily be wiped clean using a damp cloth. I would steer away from using specialist cleaning sprays just to make sure the material lasts longer.

    Other Notes

    Does what it's meant to, slip it over your car seat and it will protect your car inside from dirt, dust, scuffs and liquids.

    Pros
    • Water resistant, so great for spillages
    • Easy to fit
    • Easy to clean, just wipe it down with a warm damp cloth
    • Very competitive price
    Cons
    • Not machine washable
    • Only water resistant rather than being fully waterproof
    • Known to tear at the seams
    • No warranty
    • Although it says it is universal, it will not fit bigger car seats
    Verdict

    Does just what it needs to do and nothing more. Really great price and will keep your car seats looking better for longer.
