I wonder if the "air bag compatible" seat covers are actually tested to ensure they don't affect air bag deployment?

I have wondered the same thing myself.
One of the sites I have looked at for made to order seat covers has an additional charge for changing the sewing on the side of the seat cover where the airbag deploys but these were on the high end of the price scale. I seriously doubt that mass produced, inexpensive seat covers are really "airbag compatible". I know that when airbags deploy they do so with considerable force so the bag might rip open the side of the seat cover anyway unless it was leather or some really tough material and/or stitching but I know I wouldn't want to find out the hard way.
Still looking but the response has been almost non-existent on this as well as one other forum. Surely, a lot of folks have purchased seat covers for their 2012-2013 Elantra's so I will just ScotchGuard the seats for some protection until I get more solid info.
Thanks to those that have replied.

What's the big deal dude. As long as you are driving your new Elantra Sedan and enjoying its ride let the car seats be of any variety of material. Well, on a serious note, you need to check out the many options available at the sites like ebay.
