The SEAT Mii is one of the best city cars that money can buy. Well-constructed, surprisingly roomy and affordable to run, the Mii is an excellent choice for first-time drivers or young families.
With its cute demeanour and diminutive dimensions, the SEAT Mii is a pleasure to drive around the busy streets of Dublin and further afield. This car possesses very practical qualities, too, including four wide-opening doors that ensure easy access for all. Inside, there’s room for two adults in the rear compartment, or three younger occupants. There’s even space for a 251-litre boot, which is bigger than can be found in some rivals. With the rear seats flipped, luggage capacity increases to 959 litres.
A range of engine options is available, allowing you to choose the one that suits your needs best. A 1.0-litre 60bhp petrol unit is typically installed as standard, managing 3.6l/100km, while producing CO2 emissions from 102g/km. While the Mii isn’t built for speed, it is able to proceed from 0-100km/h in 14.2 seconds, making it a nippy little performer in congested urban settings. Thanks to its 9.3-metre turning radius, the car rarely, if ever, has problems with manoeuvrability.
Listen to your favourite tunes and radio programmes whenever you’re on the road with the Mii’s six-speaker stereo, which comes with an AM/FM tuner and touchscreen display. Also featured as standard is Bluetooth connectivity, which makes streaming music and enjoying hands-free mobile phone communication simple.
The Mii has been awarded a maximum five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP, and includes a variety of passive safety features, such as numerous airbags and ISOFIX child-seat attachments. A range of driver aids, meanwhile, include Electronic Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System, which each help the car to achieve optimal traction in all kinds of driving conditions.
