Default Changes between 2012 and 2013 XC seats

While looking for a used seat for a project I noticed that the seats on the Cross Country seem to have changed between the 2012 and 2013 models. The 2013 models seem to have two styles of vinyl and different stitching layout. Is the passenger portion of the 2013 seat the same width as the 2012? It looks narrower, but that may just be due to the stitching changes. I'm mainly concerned with whether the seat pans are the same between years.

Thanks,
Rob

I learned from other sources that the seat pans are the same but the passenger area of the seat is more sleek on the 13+. Both should work for an aftermarket seat build.

Looks like both seats are about 12" wide on the passenger section at the bottom (pan area). But the '12 seat is 15" wide on top and the '13 is 10" wide. That's quite a difference. Someone elsewhere said that for '13+ they used the wider seat on the Tour model and went with the sleeker seat on the XC. Makes a bit of sense I guess.
