Best Tesla Model 3 Trunk Mats Even Your Pet Would Appreciate

By Zac Ludicrous •  Updated: 11/13/22 •  13 min read

A trunk mat can do wonders in keeping your rear trunk neat and clean. 

Several modifications might require you to have a trunk mat to hide the wires or the spare tire if you plan to put it under your rear trunk by modifying it a little bit. 

Another common reason to get a trunk mat is to keep all the dirt and debris contained from all your adventures and long drives. 

Your pet might also make a mess back there, which might entice you to have a trunk mat. 

Basically, a trunk mat can serve many purposes.

It’s much easier to clean the trunk mat instead of taking the whole factory trunk liner out and giving it a thorough clean.

Some trunk mats come as a single piece, while others are in different segments to reach the compartments underneath seamlessly. 

In this article, we will take a look at a number of options and weigh their pros and cons, taking into account actual owners’ reviews, so you can make an informed decision.

First, let’s take a look at what Tesla itself has to offer in terms of all-weather trunk mats.

Tesla Model 3 Trunk Mat: OEM

I have to say this trunk mat looks really good. The design is simple yet elegant, and it keeps the very premium look of the Model 3. 

This trunk mat is made of thermoplastic elastomer, which is 100% recyclable. It doesn’t contain any potentially toxic stuff like cadmium, latex, PVC (which contains both cadmium and lead), and lead. 

It’s safe not only for you and your family but also for your pets if you want them to stay in the back. 

Since it’s OEM, you won’t have to worry about the fitment at all — it will be a perfect fit. 

The price point, however, is quite high, just like the Tesla OEM all-weather floor mats. 


✅ OEM 
✅ Looks great 
✅ Perfect fit
✅ Made of non-toxic material 


❌ Very expensive

Best Overall Tesla Model 3 Trunk Liner: 3D MAXpider

TAPTES has been my personal favorite when it comes to all-weather floor mats, but 3D MAXpider wins in this category. 

Even though I was very much tempted to somehow argue to make TAPTES the winner, size and fitment are huge aspects that do not allow any room for my emotions. 

I just can’t do any disservice to my readers. 

The TAPTES trunk mat covers a lesser area compared with the MAXpider trunk mat, which makes it look a bit smaller than perfect. 

MAXpider, on the other hand, is just right. There are no gaps on the sides, and the overall fitment is downright amazing. So it’s the clear winner. 

However, there are several other things that are worth mentioning. 

Material Rubber
Dimensions32 x 22 x 5 inches
Item Weight 4 pounds
Manufacturer3-D mats

The material used in MAXpider trunk mats is odorless and non-toxic. 

It is also SGS certified and gives maximum protection to your trunk from spills, scratches, stains, dirt, and debris. Whatever it is, you can simply wipe it off with a clean microfiber cloth or vacuum it or take it out and use a garden hose to clean it. It should come right off.

The edges of the mats are made to retain liquid spills inside them and prevent them from leaking onto the interior of your Model 3. 

However, these edges might seem like a little imperfection to some people, but they’re very helpful in keeping the mess contained in the back of your Model 3. 

Underneath the trunk mat, you will find an anti-skid/slip material that denies all forces that might try to move it about, such as bumps and potholes. Whatever stuff you put on top of it, the mat will remain in place. 

Regarding the price, it’s not that good. For its price, you can already get the OEM trunk mat if you add a little more money into the equation. 

If you’re the kind of person who is okay with spending a couple more dollars to get the premium stuff, you should consider the Tesla OEM trunk mat instead. 

Also, it’s not waterproof. So if the liquid spill stays on it for some time, chances are, it will leak on the trunk liner underneath. 


✅ Good quality 
✅ Well-known brand
✅ Thick material
✅ Underlay is slip proof
✅ Non-toxic and odorless
✅ SGS certified
✅ Maximum floor coverage with extra edges
✅ Easy to clean


❌ Expensive
❌ Not completely waterproof

Best Budget Trunk Mat for Tesla Model 3: SUPER LINER

This product is specially made to fit the Tesla Model 3 trunk. It can fit model years ranging from 2017 to 2022. 

The best part about this all-weather trunk mat is that it’s less than half the price of the OEM trunk mat offered by Tesla. 

Less than half the price of the OEM.

However, some reviews mention that the package comes a little bent, and the crevices would not go away without using a hair dryer or a heat gun. 

It may take a week for the trunk mat to regain its original shape so you can have a close-to-perfect fitment. 

This trunk mat is waterproof, which means that no matter what you spill on it, or what your pet might spill on it, it will hold it and keep it from making its way to the floor liner underneath, which would be a nightmare to clean. 

The sides are also raised to keep the liquid within the mat.

When it gets super dirty, you can simply take it out and wash it with a garden hose. The stains will come right off as the material is dirt resistant and easy to clean. You can use soap as well. 

The material is also scratch resistant, which means your pet can scratch it to its heart’s content and it would still be intact (or at least in my experience; I have a cat).

This also means that it can stand up to regular loading and unloading of stuff from your trunk and still look good.

Item Weight 6.47 pounds 
Color Black 
Item models SLCL-1
Manufacturer part SL-M3
Material Rubber 

SUPER LINER also offers all-weather floor mats along with cargo liners for your Tesla Model 3.

And if you want to go full-on protection mode for your vehicle, it has yet another amazingly inexpensive offer that gives you all-weather floor mats, a frunk mat, and trunk mats (both upper and lower) for your Model 3 — everything in one big deal. 

The price is too good to be true that you might think that there are some problems with these mats.

Well, actually, there isn’t any problem. It’s just that the material used might not look premium — which is expected as it’s not a premium product. 

If you want to learn more about the best all-weather floor mats for your Tesla Model 3, you can refer to this article that I wrote. 

Overall, I would say that SUPER LINER is the best budget choice that you can find. There are other cheaper options available, but their quality and finish are subpar. 

The design of these mats is not too tacky or too meh. It’s kind of good-looking. 

And if you consider the price, it’s really good-looking.

Best Rear Trunk Liners for Pets in Tesla Model 3: ThinSGO

If your main purpose for having a trunk mat is to keep your car safe from pet stains, scratches, or liquids, then this is the product for you. 

Generic trunk mats don’t cover the rear of the seats, making them prone to scratches and goo from your pets. 

This particular liner will solve this problem by covering the whole rear seat so your pet can stay happy and do its thing in the back without causing any damage to your Tesla interior. 

Taking the trunk mat out is easy, but taking the rear seats to give them a proper wash is not. So make sure to have something that covers the whole trunk area if you’re bringing your pet. 

ThinSGO trunk liners are made of soft Oxford cloth, which is both waterproof and stainproof. 

You don’t have to worry about any offensive odor from the material as there is none. 

The fabric is also non-slip, so it keeps everything in the trunk in place. 

To make sure that the mat itself doesn’t slip, a lot of velcros are attached to it underneath, which make a pretty strong bond with the velvet liner of the Model 3’s trunk. 

However, according to recent reviews, it seems that the trunk liners are being shipped with double-sided tape instead of velcro, so it’s best to get a double-sided velcro when getting this product just to be sure. 

Package dimensions 23.7 x 23.7 x 2.1 inches
Weight 5.09 pounds
ColorDark gray

The overall fitment is great, and it looks really good. Your dog would love it. 

Even if you don’t have a dog, this liner can keep your rear seats well protected from ding damage from putting and taking stuff out of the trunk during a long trip. 


✅ Competitive price
✅ Very pet-friendly
✅ Great fitment
✅ Protects the whole trunk, including the rear seats
✅ Looks good
✅ Waterproof
✅ Stainproof
✅ Skidproof 


❌ Requires more velcro

Honorable Mentions


This one is not on the cheaper side of the spectrum but sure is less expensive than the 3D MAXPider trunk mat. 

Plus, they look better than the MAXpider one in my opinion. 

Dimensions42.8 x 9.9 x 9.7 inches
Item weight 9.58 pounds
Color Black
Material Thermoplastic elastomer

As you can see from the dimensions, it covers much more area of your trunk compared with the 3D MAXpider trunk mat — which means you’re getting better protection at a better price. 

Now the cleaning part could be a little tricky, as there are so many boxy grooves. Wiping it with a clean microfiber cloth won’t entirely remove the dirt and debris stuck in those grooves, which is why you would have to take it out and use a garden hose to clear away all the grime. 

The packaging of this trunk mat is exceptional, so you won’t have to deal with a bent and deformed trunk mat and spend extra elbow grease to get it to flatten. You can simply put it in and call it a day. 

As for fitment, it’s close to OEM. It has a tight and snug fit, unlike others that take a lot of time to settle down.

On top of great fitment, it has an anti-skid surface which prevents all the stuff in the trunk from moving about and having a party with the side walls. 

Its material is recyclable and environmentally friendly. Plus, it is weatherproof and can stand all types of weather conditions. 

The material also has a soft, premium touch to it. So you get a premium-looking product without having to spend a premium.

This mat is quite durable and would last you a long time. 

However, if you’re not satisfied with the product, the seller lets you return it hassle-free within 45 days. They also have 24/7 customer service online and local store support in Ontario, California.


✅ Less expensive than 3D MAXpider
✅ Premium look
✅ Close to OEM fitment 
✅ Cool looks
✅ Innovative new design
✅ All weatherproof
✅ Flexible
✅ Soft touch
✅ Spillproof
✅ Anti-skid 


❌ A little extra effort is required for cleaning 


KIKIMO is one of the leading brands in aftermarket Tesla accessories, and their garbage can for the Tesla Model 3 is my absolute favorite; it’s just so cute. 

Their trunk mat is not short of any features. It has everything you need. 

It fits great, it looks great, and it feels great. 

Cost-wise, KIKIMO offers one of the most inexpensive yet still good-quality trunk mats, which can compete with brands like MAXpider and TAPTES. 

Material Thermoplastic elastomer
Dimensions‎22.3 x 21.3 x 3.6 inches
Weight 4.84 pounds

The material used in KIKIMO trunk mats is weatherproof, so you don’t have to worry about getting them soaked in rainwater or snow. They will stand tall in both cold and hot weather.

These mats are also made to be pet-friendly, so you can leave your pet on these mats without worry. 

You can also clean it pretty easily if your pet happens to make a mess. 

The best thing about KIKIMO trunk mats is that they provide a one-year warranty. 

This, on top of its competitive price, earns KIKIMO the honorable mention spot here. 

The only drawback of this mat is the odor that stays on it for about a week or two. 

You would have to leave it in your garage or outside under the sun for some time to make the odor go away so you can enjoy rear trunk protection from this amazing trunk mat.


✅ Comes with a one-year warranty
✅ Very inexpensive
✅ Waterproof
✅ Pet-friendly
✅ Made of recyclable material
✅ Easy to clean 


❌ Offensive odor (needs to stay outside for a while)

Final Thoughts: Best Tesla Model 3 Trunk Mat

After spending hours and hours nitpicking on each trunk mat offered for the Tesla Model 3, I have come to the conclusion that the ThinSGO trunk mat is an all-around product everyone would benefit from.

If you want something that looks cool and dashing, the LASFIT trunk mat is for you.

If you want something tried and tested, go for the 3D MAXpider trunk mat.

If you’re on a budget and you’re okay with spending some elbow grease, your best bet is the SUPER LINER trunk mat

If you’re like my cousin Sara who only buys premium products, get the Tesla OEM trunk mat.
