Removable display now free with new Seat Mii

The Seat Portable system, worth £275, is being included in Seat Mii Ecomotive, SE and Sport models bought before 31st December 2012 free of charge.

The system is a removable five-inch display screen with satellite navigation, Bluetooth hands-free calling and music display built in.

It can also display vehicle information statistics, connect up to two mobile phones to the car’s systems to play music over the sound system and includes a widescreen display for ease of use.

Using voice recognition, it allows phone calls, satellite navigation and audio to be accessed using voice commands so that the driver remains focused on the road ahead.

The portable screen will also boast Apple-style ‘apps’ in future that can be downloaded to the system.

The new Seat Mii is the newest and smallest car on sale in the Spanish manufacturer’s range. Similar to the Volkswagen Up – the two are owned by the same company – the Seat Mii boasts three- or five-door variations and a compact, city-friendly design.

Available in three trim levels, the Seat Mii is powered by two 1.0-litre petrol engines developing 50 and 74bhp. The most frugal of the two, the 59bhp version, is available with an Ecomotive pack which adds stop-start technology to the Mii.

This brings CO2 emissions down to a road tax-free 97g/km of CO2 emissions and this will also qualify London-based Seat Mii drivers for exemption from the London congestion charge.

The new Seat Mii is on sale now at Perrys Seat dealerships. Seat Mii prices start from just £8,000 in the UK.
