fit......yes, theyd fit just fine. plug and play functionality is probably your question.

1) do either/both drivers have memory?
2) you could check electrical diagrams for both years to see if the pinouts to the seat harness are the same. I suspect they are. the seat internals/sensors have changed between those years, but that may not impact plug/play.

Turns out that it is pretty complicated to find a complete set of seats. Plus most junk yards do not like trade-ins (of the cloth seats) and/or do not install seats.

Katzkin and other aftermarket leather is insanely expensive: $1800.

FWIW I swapped the cloth seats in my 2011 SE Flex for the leather seats from a 2011 SEL Flex for $500. $100 each for the front seats, $100 each for the captains chairs and $100 for the 3rd row seats. Drove about 150 miles to pick them up. Swapped the cloth split 60-40 bench 2nd row for the leather captains chairs in their parking lot and just left it there.
Went from the 6 way drivers seat, manual passenger seat to the 10 way drivers seat and 6 way passenger seat. Passenger side was plug & play, while the drivers seat was a bunch of fun wiring.
