Just wondering if anyone has installed Katzkin leather seat covers in their CHR. Apparently the factory seat cover must be removed and the Katzkin is installed in its place. It appears that certain offerings have virtually the same design and color scheme as the factory cloth.

Too expensive in my opinion. My C-HR is blue with white roof so I got the ones attached in the picture. Complete set for around $300 CDN. Bought them off Amazon.com. They are good quality seat covers, not the real leather of course but they do stand out and come in various colours options.

For any Canadian reading this and interested, do not buy them off Amazon.ca as they go around $600 on Canadian Amazon website. But if you order them off Amazon.com they would be around $300ish CDN

I have attached pics of the installed Katzkin leather seat covers for anyone who may be considering that option. The factory cloth covers were removed and the Katzkin leather covers installed. The Katzkin are a premium product and it is reflected in the price. Mine might be somewhat of a unique situation because I actually wanted leather seats but did not like the look of the stock black leather in the CHR Limited. I really did not want most of the other options included with the CHR Limited either (e.g. auto windshield wipers). So my approach was to purchase the CHR XLE and then purchase the aftermarket Katzkin. Even though the Katzkin are expensive relative to other products on the market, they have a higher leather content and are available in a large range of colors and accent stitching that is not available in the OEM. I have also installed LASFIT LED lights in the entire vehicle, put on OEM mud guards, had OEM LED fogs lights installed, and purchased 3D Maxpider floor liners in addition to the Katzkin leather seats - and am still $ ahead of purchasing the CHR Limited. During my research there appears to be a large number of individuals who are purchasing lower trim level SUV's and trucks and then installing the Katzkin leather after the fact - and apparently saving substantial $'s in the process. Hope this is helpful for anyone looking into this option.

Thanks Tanveer0543.

For those considering Katzkin, one tip is to query CHR Katzkin (or variants thereof) on eBay. You can find specific products listed. The eBay seller can also obtain any color/style/stitching that can be configured on the Katzkin web site. With the eBay cost information in hand, the local Katzkin dealer/installer will likely match that price. I was able to save 35% using this strategy.

how are these holding up for you? i dont mind a nice vegan leather, but i worry that the extreme conditions in the car might kill these pretty quickly if they arent very durable.

Hey Shinercub... I've had them for almost a year now and they're holding fine. No rips, tears, or messed up stitching what so ever. Its been almost a year and i didn't even feel the need of tightening them again. Also, i drove over 20 000 km on these so you can tell they've been pretty durable.
