I wanted to make this comparison post in case anyone is trying to decide between getting Toyota's all weather mats or ordering weathertechs. I originally wanted weathertech, but because my car was someone else's cancelled order, the dealership made me take the Toyota mats that had been originally ordered with the car. My car is a 23 but weathertech only offers 22 mats right now which still fit perfectly.

The Toyota mats have nice ridges and are flexible, but I don't like how there's no coverage under and to the side of the gas pedal. Sand and debris easily got under the mat by the pedals. My shoe also rubs the sidewall next to the gas pedal so the carpet was starting to get dirt and some wear on it. The weathertechs have much higher sidewalls for pretty much full coverage in the footwell. The only thing they don't fully cover is the deadpedal. I like that weathertechs are more bowl shaped with the higher walls so I can pull the whole pan out to dump out debris. I get a lot of sand and snow where I am so the extra coverage helps. The Toyota mat was a bit more difficult to fully contain the sand when removing, as everything wanted to spill out the shorter front .

Passenger side was similar. The Toyota mats don't fully cover the sides towards the front. Weathertech has better coverage of the carput so my passengers don't rub their dirty shoes on it. The Toyota mats were starting to warp a small amount on the sidewall for some reason, not sure if someone was stepping around on it during a drive. The weathertech plastic is much stiffer and has a snug fit.

I didn't end up getting the weathertech rear mats as I rarely have backseat passengers. The Toyota mats have good ridges on the back mats, but the mat only covers the very bottom of the floor.

Thanks for the write up. I've had weather tech mats in the past, and after a few months of cold weather they began beauing in on the sides leaving an unsightly gap. I'll be interested to hear how they hold up.
