I have 2019 limited with white seats in Denver. They work well in climate. I use remote start if it is outside in summer sun for hours to get a head start on cooling off vehicle. It doesn't take long. Same in reverse in winter. I was going into the vehicle at 5am when it had been freezing for many hours. No problem with heated seat, defroster and temp setting warning it up.Our climate is hot in summer and cold in winter. Debating whether to go with white Ext and black seats or black Ext and Ivory seats. What do you recommend?
I have not had any issues with maintaining the ivory. This had been a concern prior to purchase.I sure do appreciate all this quick feedback on seat color. I lean toward the Ivory only because the black seats will be so hot in the summer sun. Sounds like maybe the black shows dirt and dust more too.
I have ivory and have not experienced any staining from anything including blue jeans.I prefer the Ivory seats for the same reason @Jim_in_PA stated above, that combined with the big sunroof makes the interior in my Limited feel more open.
One issue with the Ivory is that the dye from blue jeans stains the outside edges of both front seats, where you slide in and out. It comes off ok using a leather cleaner, although this part of the seat isn't leather. I'm sure this is also happening to the other colors, it is just not as noticable.
I suspect there is some reason having to do with production costs, but I can not foresee why that would be.Ivory gets my vote. One of my complaints to Subaru is that certain exterior colors only come with certain interior colors.
I wanted a red or blue Ascent,but not a black interior. I wanted the ivory interior and the white exterior was what I settled on.
OK. The consensus is for the ivory so I will go that way. Checked it out today and it does look good but every new car looks good on the lot before its sold and soiled.We have a 2919 with crimson (red) exterior & white interior. Using it for fishing & camping in the summers in Idaho, & the rest of the year in southwest Florida, the white works best for us. And cleaning is not a problem. A good leather cleaner & soft cloth make it easy-peasy! I'd NEVER have black interior in Florida. Enjoy your Ascent!
I have a 2020 ascent with the ivory seats which I love. But, beware that they will become tinted light blue (along the outside edge) from your jeans. Just some food for thought. I now have a towel on the seat because of this.Our climate is hot in summer and cold in winter. Debating whether to go with white Ext and black seats or black Ext and Ivory seats.
