I have a 2017 Volt and just installed some new Husky floor mats. They fit perfectly and are better than Weather Tech. I had a set of Weather Tech for my Prius and they were nice but much more expensive then the Husky mats I currently installed In my Volt. They were a faction of the cost and made in the USA. I believe they are cheaper due to all of the advertising cost built into the Weather Tech product.

I'm not sure how advertising compares between Husky and Weathertech personally.
I've used Husky mats on my last two vehicles and would recommend them to anyone. Great products.

Open any car magazine or watch TV and you can easily see a WeatherTech ad. You bet the ads are built into the price of the product. I have the Husky mats in my 2014 Volt and the WeatherTechs in my Malibu. I will never buy the WeatherTech mats again.

The Husky mats are the way to go, I won't buy anything else.

Of course ad costs are built into the price, same for every single product we buy :)

I have weatherTech in my 2014 Volt. They are great, they fit perfectly and keep my beige carpet looking great by containing rain, sleet, snow brought in by shoes.

The WeatherTech mats in my '13 were a gift from a good friend of mine and I've been very happy with them. Having said that I've seen the Husky in another '13 and compared them closely.

The Husky mats are a bit deeper and cover more of the driver's "dead pedal" which is good.
That same additional depth makes the Husky a bit harder to get in and out, but this is a minor point.
Husky has a better warranty

So although I am in no way unhappy with my WeatherTech mats, if I had to do it over I'd go with Husky

I had weathertech in my gen1, and was holding out for them to be released for gen2....alas they lost my business because they were slow (are they even out yet?). The husky ones are definitely better value for the dollar, but I actually think the weathertech ones fit a bit better and more snug. They also had a higher 'lip' than the husky mats.

All that being said though, I think the husky's are the better purchase considering you get a full set of 4 mats for less than 2 front weathertech mats. I'd recommend the husky ones after owning both unless you have lots of spare cash :)

I installed the husky mats in my car this weekend, and I am quite pleased with it, as well as the cost was reasonable. It also helped that I won a $100 gift card from work for amazon, so I was able to order them there :)

That, or more likely the taxes WeatherTech has to pay in Crook County Illinois. :p

I'm so glad I found this thread. Thanks for letting me know about Husky. Mine just arrived for my 2017 Volt and I agree, the fit is snug and more exact than the Weather Tech mats I had in my previous TDI Sportwagen.

They are stiffer and less flexible than the Weather Techs so the feel is different. We'll see how it goes over time.

Just got my Husky mats. Fit is great. Much better than the last set on my VW Passat. Highly recommended!

Does anyone else think that the Husky Liner floor mats provide better thermal isolation/insulation than the stock Gen II Volt carpet and floor mats? I purchased my Husky Liner mats in July and noticed right away that I did not feel the road heat through the floor of the Volt like I did before I installed the Husky mats. This winter I have frequently driven my Volt using minimal electric heat and just the heated seat and steering wheel. Others on the forum have complained that their feet get cold but my feet do not usually feel cold. I attribute this to the unexpected insulating properties of the Husky Liner mats.

Turns out the Wife bought me a set for my birthday. They are really nice......as good if not better than any of the Weathertech ones I've had in previous vehicles, and for a steal of a price. Very impressed. I immediately installed them to make 100% sure we don't get anymore snow this winter

The title of the thread is Husky Floor Mats, the brand is Husky Liners. There is only one model of Husky Liners car mats for the 2016/2017 Volt.

LONGHI,

Thanks for sharing those photos. This confirms what I want for my father's day gift - they look great.
And a question; looks like you are one of a number of Volt owners from Waterloo, perhaps Iowa??
If so; I am from Grundy County, and am now in northern Illinois........
