Following the recent unveilings of the Volkswagen Up! and Skoda Citigo, SEAT’s Mii has now been revealed. SEAT’S newest model will go on sale at the end of this year as a three-door in Spain, with the rest of Europe being able to get their hands on one in Spring 2012. SEAT claim the Mii is “the perfect automobile for the urban lifestyle of today”, and in all fairness they’ve provided the figures to reinforce this statement.
The Mii is only 3.56 meters long, adding to its city car nature, and aiding it in the day-to-day challenges faced from urban driving; such as parking. The Mii will weigh a minimal 854 kg and be powered by a choice of 60 or 75 hp 1.0 Litre Petrol Engines; VW Group’s new engines that are to offer the power behind all its new city cars. The weight and economical engines combined will offer great fuel efficiency; a combined 62.8 mpg for the 60hp and 60.1mpg for the 75hp version, making it perfect for city life. With the Ecomotive version emitting just 97g/km of CO2 and the petrol/compressed natural gas variation emitting an even more impressive 86 g/km and allowing it to be one of the cleanest cars in the world.
The Mii will simply be another variation of the Up! with similarities lending the car more towards the Citigo, yet being different in the styling of the front end, tail lamps, alloy wheels and interior. Considering the cars nature, some may be a little surprised to discover the 60hp has the potential to reach speeds of 99mph and the 75hp up to 106mph. However, this is very inkeeping with SEAT’S targeting of the Mii towards younger buyers.
