    Subaru ivory/tan interior and dirt?

    Wife and I are looking at getting a new Outback. Trying to decide between the black and ivory/tan interior (cloth, not leather).

    Between riding and trail work I can bring a lot of dirt in the car particularly the seats.

    Curious if anyone has had a Subaru from the last few years with the ivory/tan interior and how well it resists dirt and/or cleans up.

    Thanks
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Our '16 Forester Limited has Ivory leather.

    We bought a Happyseat protecter to clip on when we ride. It works awesome. Wash them every few weeks, no issues wearing my suits to work, then getting in the car after a muddy-sweaty ride. Leather still looks great.

    I got a grease stain the first week I had my ivory/tan interior Outback. Ordered black neoprene seat covers the same day.

    Had a Forester with the light gray cloth interior. Sprayed it with Scotch Guard fabric protector the day I got it. Fabric looked dirty all the time. Had to constantly clean it, but it was easy to clean. Scotch Guard prevented the dirt from staining.

    I have a '15 Crosstrek with the tan interior. All the dirt/stains I've had clean up with some warm water and a rag. I was surprised it was so easy since a friend has a Kia with tan seats and she can't get them clean at all.

    We have the light gray interior (cloth) if that's what you are referring to. Horrible - gets dirty super easy and it stains.
