Enjoy the Seat to Enjoy the Ride
28 April, 2018
One of the best things about a car is the seat. If it weren’t so comfy, then it’s something that you need to make best out of it. This is important, because when you drive that’s where you will sit on for the duration of your journey. Fortunately, on Cortez 1.8 type L, we got you covered with our electric front seat adjuster feature for the best and convenient driving experience.
That convenient electrical adjuster feature is one thing, the other thing you need to consider is the configuration. On Confero and Cortez, we provide you the option between owning a 7 and 8-seater.
If your traveling party is a crowd, then the 8-seater is the best option, but if you’d prefer a more luxurious and classy approach, then the 7-seater is made for you. The good thing about Wuling cars is the flooring, it is flat so you will never trip when getting out of your car. Once you’re good with the configuration, next is the list of materials you can choose from.
The seat’s material is something you need to put into consideration as well. Although we believe that what we provide would meet your standard of comfortable driving experience, but everyone has got their own preference, right? Basically, there are a few types of seat material and we have gathered that information for your guidance into making your car a home.

Although we prefer that you’d go with semi leather instead, however sitting on a real leather will provide the extra comfort and luxury when sitting, either for a short or long time. Since this material can be quite expensive, thus extra care is advised when you want to clean it.
Considering the delicate nature of the material, please do not clean it too often as it might damage the surface. Only clean it regularly once a month or when there’s a dirty spot that you need to wipe clean. Make sure to use a special solution on a sponge or a used toothbrush to wipe off the dirty spot to prevent from damaging the leather. Do not use bleach- or ammonia-based cleaners. Put a few drops of the solution onto the surface of the sponge or cloth then you may clean the leather surface with it.
You can experience the good feeling of sitting on a semi-leather seat that we use on our Cortez 1.8 L type and Confero S. The good thing about this material is that it doesn’t absorb heat, so it doesn’t matter when you park it under a hot climate. The cleaning process is also easy as 1, 2, 3; you will need to use water or a special solution onto a piece of cloth or sponge, then just wipe off the surface. This material is a lot tougher compared to the leather, thus you may expect a long-term usability of this material and without the need of sacrificing any animal for a real leather.
The feels of this material is similar to real fabric. It is very durable and inexpensive; however, the porous form of this material can store dirt that gets stuck inside it. One way to clean it is by using a vacuum. So, prevent it from being spilled over by any liquid (baby food, soda beverage, any sticky goo, etc. but when it is, then you may use a mix of mild detergent with a little hot water to clean the stains using a piece of cloth or brush. Once you’re done, use a sponge and dip it in hot water to remove the residue of the detergent solution.
The material is not advised when you live in mainly sunny area or during a long summer where the sun is constantly scorching hot. This is because the nature of the material that absorbs heat, especially when the color is dark. But, the good thing is this material is very, very easy to clean. When it’s covered with dirt, just use a vacuum or damp cloth to wipe it off.
Overall, be sure to run through some test on some of the materials so you are really positive when deciding to purchase and change the upholstery of your interior. Because not only some of these materials take some effort to maintain, they are also quite expensive.
Another thing to consider, make sure that the material option meets your personality, otherwise, you will be uncomfortable the whole time driving your car. Lastly, if you are not sure to change the seat material for now but you still want to experiment, then go for car seat cover instead-when you don’t like it or when you’re bored of it, you can just throw it away.
