Light carpet vs. dark carpet

OK....I've seen some two tone seats with dark carpet and some with light carpet. What drives the difference? I want as light of an interior as possible in toasty AZ! Thanks in advance!

Re: Light carpet vs. dark carpet

How clean do you want it to look? I have the 2 tone interior & unfortunately the carpets are the light portion & get dirty fast. It's an attractive interior but I wish I would have gotten the all black.

Re: Light carpet vs. dark carpet

I'll use mats so dirt isn't a prob. In AZ when its 113 you want every inch of light colored interior you can get. A car in the sun out here hits 140 easy.

Still no idea what triggers light versus dark!

Re: Light carpet vs. dark carpet

Guys-

Thanks for the suggestions. My cars are always tinted, and I grew up in La, and the heat here is a different animal. Just trying to find out how to get light carpet in a 5th gen!

Thanks-

What part of La? I grew up in Kenner/Metairie area. My parents live in Gilbert, so I do know how hot it gets in the valley of the sun.
