This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in March of 2018. The first place your car's interior shows signs of wear and tear is often the floors. Whether it's tracked-in mud and snow during inclement weather or food crumbs and spilled coffee, the original mats, if your car came with any, are often not durable enough to provide protection. Our selection of replacements includes both sturdy and weatherproof and decorative choices to meet a variety of needs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best car mat on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

May 26, 2020:

Removed the Motor Trend Clean Rubber because of availability concerns. Added the WeatherTech 44751 and the Husky Liners 99371.

For whatever reason, most car manufacturers are still using nylon carpeting in their footwells. It can be nearly impossible to clean, particularly when you spill certain liquids and allow them to set. They should be using some sort of thermoplastic foot well but until they make the switch, a set of mats like the WeatherTech 44751 or the Husky Liners 99371 keep your car looking good and they're essential if you live in a place with snowy winters. Note that both of these sets are specifically molded for a particular car model. This, along with better materials and designs, make them more expensive but vastly superior to 'universal' mats. The WeatherTech and Husky liners' model-specific molding process allow them to be made with fitted raised outer lips which essentially creates a dish to hold dirt, water, and debris to be later cleaned. If you can't see yourself paying that much for floor mats, WeatherTech does make the AVM which is made of the same durable polymers but can be cut to the rough shape of your footwell. They're not as protective as the custom molded mats but they'll provide a solid barrier between your boots and the carpet.
