The front and rear seats are finished in a urethane material that is the key new surface ingredient. If an occupant gets into the vehicle soaked from being caught in the rain or has been in the damp outdoors, the seats won't absorb the moisture.Subaru is calling the durable, lightweight material StarTex, which the automaker said does not include any animal component in the material manufacturing process, making it vegan-friendly.
Additionally, the material does not contain polyvinyl chloride, phthalate or chlorine. The material's backing contains 25 percent recycled polyethylene terephthalate.
The soft-touch seats are also easy to scrub clean, should occupants track mud and other outdoorsy debris into the cabin.
