We say Solid, no-frills city car. Well built, excellent value for money, great around town and very dull. Closely related to the VW Up and Skoda Citigo.Performance There are two versions of a single 1.0-litre unit available, with either 59bhp or 73bhp at its disposal. The latter is the fastest, clearing 62mph in 13.2 seconds but fortunately providing enough pep to make city driving simple. The less powerful unit will clear 62mph from stationary in a more sedate 14.4 seconds.Emissions Range-best CO2 emissions will come with the Mii Ecomotive model and they should sit at around 97g/km. Expect a range-high of around 100 – 110g/km in CO2 emissions.Driving The Mii is setup to drive around the city and it’s adept at doing just that. It’s small and agile with light steering which makes it easily manoeuvrable in tight spaces. There’s not a lot of bodyroll either. On the open road it’s less composed and the engines need to be worked hard to get it up to speed.Feel The Mii rides fairly well and it’s composed over bumps and lumps in the road surface without ever being too firm or too soft. It’s fairly refined as well but once up to speed on motorways and A-roads, the engine can whine.Space The Mii isn’t blessed with tonnes of interior space but there should be few complaints on short journeys for tall passengers in the front or back. Over longer distances headroom can become an issue for those in the back. At the rear there’s a 251-litre boot that expands to around 950-litres when the rear seats are folded flat.Equipment At entry-level, the Mii is fairly basic in terms of equipment however further up the range there is some quite sophisticated technology including a portable multimedia system.Price The Mii is competitively priced and undercuts its rival Volkswagen up! and Skoda Citigo counterparts with list prices kicking off from around £8,000.Quality The Mii is a solidly put together car, despite the fact that it’s incredibly cheap. As ever with a Seat, it’s going to be reliable courtesy of its Volkswagen heritage and come with a strong pair of engines. All the materials inside are high-quality with lots of soft-touch plastics.Safety The Seat Mii comes with a maximum five-star safety award from Euro NCAP thanks to its mix of safety technology including an extensive range of airbags and a number of driver/safety aids like City Emergency Braking. A lot of the cleverer pieces of safety kit are only available as cost options however.Pros Price and build quality are the Mii’s two biggest qualities. It undercuts the majority of cars on the market in terms of list price and comes with low running costs, too.Cons At entry-level, the Mii is fairly basic and in terms of appearance it’s dull when compared to the Volkswagen up! and Skoda Citigo.Alternatives Volkswagen up!, Skoda Citigo
