Does the mat in the second row cover the amp under the passenger seat?
From their website:


It looks like the mat does not extend forward to cover the amplifier. I do like how the footrest and the area under the accelerator pedal are covered by the TuxMat design.

To date, Tuxmat and Smartliner by Maxliner come the closest, but none cover it completely.

Sorry -- I was asking which brands of floor mat offer the door sill coverage...you were showing how TuxMat leaves the door sill uncovered, allowing salt and sand to get down into the interior next to the mat.
oh sorry.. maybe these will base on the images.

Ours sadly do not fit like that. It's what I am currently using. I'll do some Ascent specific pics later.

Tuxmat owners: I understand the driver's mat covers the area under the accelerator pedal. The stock rubber floor mat does not. However, you can see that there's a small hockey puck-shaped disc there under the pedal that seems to be the "wide open throttle" stop. Does the Tuxmat just cover that up? If it does, I presume it wouldn't be hard to press firmly enough to still get 100% throttle out of the accelerator pedal, but I'm curious how that interface down there is.

Thanks!

The mats do not go high enough to affect the accelerator pedal. There is no interference.

Thanks for the clarification. Maybe the images on their website are misleading. It looks like the mats go up the floorboard area a good ways and cover the floor under the pedal. Perhaps this is not the case.

Or, are you saying the Tuxmat is not thick enough to prevent the pedal from going to the wide open throttle position? It looks like the pedal will hit the mat when pressed "to the floor" (IE: the little plastic pad will no longer limit the pedal's travel because the mat is laying on top of it).

I'm sure the reply @AscentPilot gave is sufficient. But you can check this by setting your MFD to show the % accelerator applied. You can view this with the car on (two clicks), but with the engine off. *Press the pedal and you can see the display show full range of motion (0-100%). Throw some material under the pedal to simulate a thick mat and see how much would be needed to really have any effect.

*This won't 'flood your carburetor' like in the old days. I'm not that old but my first car was vintage and carbureted. ;)

What is the texture and feel like on the TuxMats? Are they slippery and hard? I’ve read that the WeatherTech, Husky, and MaxLiners are rigid and loud, like in a utility van or truck.

ive also been looking at these, but haven’t found anyone who has used them.

I just bought the TuxMat. I’ve had WeatherTech in another car. WeatherTech is more rigid and “louder” . TuxMat has a softer touch and feel as your feet press on it when getting in car. Overall, I’m happy with it.

Not familiar with maxpider, but like the extra coverage over the door sill I see in the picture.

I have Tuxmats in my `19 Outback and absolutely love them.

The amount of coverage compared to OEM mats, SOA's "All Season" is a bit obvious. lol

And they help quiet down the cabin from road noise a tad too.

I'll add my 2 cent. I bought, received, and installed these moons ago. fit and finish is outstanding and clean up is easy. Yes, they are expensive but you pay for what you get. To those who complain because they aren't fitted out in a certain area as per your liking... great... find and use another brand. I happen to use, love, and recommend tuxmats. Happy to share pictures but I think they are covered plenty in this thread, sans the little clips that accompany a tight and more secure fit.
