New Seat Mii on sale in June

The new Seat Mii, a rebadged version of the Volkswagen Up, is a small city car designed to sit below the Seat Ibiza in its small car range.

Available in three- and five-door body styles, the Seat Mii has been designed as a technology-packed, low-cost car for city-based driving.

The Seat Mii measures just 3.5 metres in length but a raised rear end gives extra head room to rear passengers and offers up to 951-litres of boot space with the rear seats folded in the five-door version.

Under the bonnet, the Seat Mii comes with a choice of petrol and diesel engines. The headline-grabbing ‘Seat Ecomotive’ version delivers sub-100g/km of CO2 emissions and subsequently offers free UK road tax and exemption from the London congestion charge.

Extra technology included in the new Seat Mii includes laser sensors to detect objects in front of the car, fuel-saving stop-start technology, an in-car ‘infotainment’ system bringing sat-nav, hands-free phone and Bluetooth together, and rear parking sensors.

Seat also plans to offer a range of equipment and styling options include packs such as the ‘Smiile’ and ‘Enjoy’ packs offering body graphics and sporting upgrades respectively.

Originally the Seat Mii launch date was set for ‘Spring 2012’ but Seat has now narrowed it down to June 2012. Prices for both the new Seat Mii three-door and the five-door model will be revealed closer to the UK launch.

The Seat Mii will be available from Perrys Seat of Aylesbury from June 2012.
