I've done some searching, but interested in the latest thoughts on aftermarket seat covers which won't interfere with airbags....

I've been eyeing Cover King seat covers which are specifically designed for the Insight with side airbags. Just need to come up with a spare few hundred to make it happen!

Keep in mind there's always risk that airbags won't deploy properly thru aftermarket seat cover seams, even if intended/designed to accommodate. I accept this risk in that I chose to install front seat covers. But I think this liability is why Honda only offers rear seat covers and not the front ones.

You should be able to find several options for LX/EX Insight front seat covers by researching Civic options. The seat measurements I took between floor models was nearly identical for front and rear seats. For the Touring Insight, @Verdier cautioned that the Cover King / Neosupreme product doesn't take into account the power controls (yet).
@Min Pin bought Rixxu Classic Series Seat Covers (pictured in post #14 to #16 of this other thread) which look really fitted, polished and OEM-like.

I appreciate the reminder, will probably pass on the seat covers for that reason

I just got the Rixxu Classic seat covers that another member has. They look really nice. Not a perfect fit, but definitely look good. They don't even have sides, so no airbag deployment issues hopefully.

I got the matching back bench cover as well, but there are issues with that. It's too wide and not adjustable. The seat bottom looks weird because of the design where it covers a gap with a wide patch that ends up covering the actual seat area as well. Plus, our rear headrests do not adjust making the headrest covers not really work at all.

The fronts are awesome, but I'm trying to figure out how to make the back look nice so I have matching seats.

Front and rear seat covers, can’t find any!

I’m an Uber driver and I really feel like the seat fabric isn’t the best quality, there are no oem covers, has anyone found aftermarket ones?

See posts above for discussion on front seat covers. For rear seat covers, the Civic OEM version fits well and is durable material, if you don't mind the tone-on-tone Civic logo. - https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/321-interior/114-rear-seat-covers.html

Overall, the Insight and Civic have the same seat measurements/contours. There are way more GenX Civics sold and on the road, so there should be plenty of options to choose from. If you find something that fits the GenX Civic seats, it will fit the Insight.
