SEAT Mii will be (very slightly) cheaper than identical VW Up
SEAT has revealed the prices of its
It's possible to get into Mii for only £7,845; it's possible to get one Up for £7,995.
Available to order now for a delivery in June, the Mii is mechanically identical to the VW Up and the Skoda Citigo that completes the trio.
The only visible differences are the grilles of each - so when SEAT says that its car has "the joint longest wheelbase in its class," it means joint with...you know.
The bottom outlay will bag a Mii S with the 59bhp version of the three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine that powers every car. In the S it spits out 105g/km, but in the more expensive Ecomotive trim it has start-stop, lowering that figure to 96g/km CO2, meaning 67.3mpg. There's a 74bhp version of the engine too, available in SE and Sport specs.
S cars have steel wheels, minus the plastic wheel trims (for "retro charm," says SEAT), a two-speaker stereo and 'preparation' for the SEAT Portable System, which means a hole for you to put it in, but not the system itself - one of the car's best features.
S A/C spec adds, erm...we're not sure. Probably 'Amazing Carpets', but you should ask a dealership.
Ecomotive comes next, adding 14-inch alloys, a leather steering wheel rim, electric heated door mirrors and gloss white for the dashboard panel. That costs £9,125. For comparison, an equivalent VW Up costs £9,330.
Bump up to a Mii Sport, with the 74bhp engine, and it'll set you back £9,925.
The most expensive Mii is £10,335, for a 74bhp SE car with an automatic gearbox. And that's enough of this.
