The SEAT Mii city car is now available with a new efficient automatic gearbox

SEAT has announced a new automatic gearbox for the Mii city car, and it actually delivers better economy figures than the manual version.

Available only with the 74bhp 1.0-litre engine in SE specification, the automatic-equipped Mii returns 62.8mpg and 105g/km. That’s compared to 60.1mpg and 108g/km for the manual.

Acceleration in the Mii auto is slightly worse, though, with the 0-62mph time increasing from 13.2 seconds to 13.9 seconds.

The gearbox itself is an automated version of the manual five-speed and weighs only 3kg more than the manual gearbox.

Buyers can order the Mii auto as a three or five-door model, priced at £10,390 and £10,740 respectively – that’s an extra £1,115 over the manual.

The first automatic-equipped Miis will be available in November.

Waiting for "entirely seperate" reviews for the automatic versions of the VW and Skoda clones of this vehicle. Unless AE prove me wrong of course!

That does seem like a lot more money for an automated manual gearbox.

I'm bored with these cars already. Where's the new Renault 4, something cheap with height, visibility, space, easy access and real comfort?
