you'll have to wait for a bit as its just starting to hit showrooms so aftermarket companies will need time

Don't know what are available but I have had good luck with Iggee. Have them in my Jeep and our soon to be sold Pilot. Reasonably priced and good fit. Look on Ebay as well as their site as they sometimes have sales.

Keep in mind high quality replacement covers will run $1600 ish if you ever actually needed to replace heavily damaged seat covers. Were at almost 10yrs in our light cream interior OB with two young kids 6-8yrs plus a dog and countless dirty camping trips. The only wear that seems damaging has been chafing of kids car seats on dirty car seat. But even this is very minor wear spots.

We just returned from a 6 day camping trip. I used no joke 15 terry towel washcloth sized rags basically scrubbing down the rear ie behind the front seats. They cleaned up great once again.

The only time I have put a seat cover over a seat was on my old Land Cruiser driver seat during the summer for wet butt vs water proof cover launching boats. Soaking wet shorts vs old school leather seats don’t mix well. But Subaru has used faux leather in the center seat section for yrs that has helped greatly in durability.

I say skip the extra seat cover enjoy the great seats, clean them etc. If your getting into the seat soaking wet on a weekly/daily basis then a water proof cover is great outside of that just wipe them down occasionally and roll with it. Its a Subaru not a Mercedes collectors car?

Any recommendation for a seat protector for the 3rd row seats? We want to put something down for the dog in the back.

We use these from Diono in OB with tan leather. No stains from the foam in 2 years


Thanks for the recommendation. I got these to put under 2 rear facing car seats in the 2nd row so it will be nice to not get dirt from he kids shoes. I got the black for my black interior, and you don't even really notice it, it kind of blends in. The red stitching actually gives it a cool accent.

Amazon has some great car seat protectors. Don’t forget seatback kick protectors too!!!

Just an FYI, you must check with your car seat manufacturer that they allow things to be placed under their car seats. Most manufacturers do NOT allow car seat protectors to be placed under their car seats, as the car seats were not tested with them. Therefore, if you choose to place them under your car seat (and the manufacturer doesn't allow it) and you get into an accident, your car seat warranty will most likely be voided and you have no repercussions against the manufacturer if the car seat if it doesn't work properly. As long as you regularly take out the car seat to clean around it, you won't have issues with it marking or leaving indents in the leather.

I tried to order the seat covers from Okele back in September but got a call back saying that they did not have covers for the 2nd row bench or the 3rd row despite their site showing they were available. Not sure if they have them available now though.
