SEAT Mii review - Interior, design and technology

The entry-level model is extremely basic, but move up a notch or two and things quickly improve

Given that the SEAT Mii shares its basic architecture with the Volkswagen up! and Skoda Citigo, you'd expect all three cars to look very similar in profile – and they do.

The little SEAT, however, has a character that sets it apart from its siblings.

Design cues from SEAT's Ibiza and Leon are clearly visible at the front of the Mii, where a much narrower 'arrowhead' grille is flanked by a pair of oversized headlights. While the Mii doesn't get the Volkswagen up!'s glass tailgate finish, it does benefit from a set of neat zig-zag taillights. 

SE models get 14-inch alloys, electric front windows, tinted glass and air conditioning as standard – as well as a leather-trimmed steering wheel which helps lift the ambience a little.

Design Mii and FR Line cars get bigger wheels, a glossy finish across the dashboard and steering wheel, plus lower suspension on the FR Line.

SEAT also offers a choice of styling packs as options which are designed to help customers personalise their Mii, inside and out. 

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

The Mii gets a six-speaker stereo, as well as many other desirable extras. Using SEAT’s Drive Mii phone app, you can link your device with the car for TomTom-based sat-nav, phone and media control on the move and even an Eco Trainer function. This uses a dashtop cradle in the same place as the Portable System, but employs your phone’s superior graphics.

FR Line models, and the range-topping Cosmopolitan, come with the five-inch touchscreen SEAT Portable System as standard. As the name suggests, this feature is detachable but sits atop the dashboard when in use, and includes sat-nav, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming functions, as well as a Micro SD card slot for music storage.

You can add the sat-nav to the lesser models as an option, and DAB digital radio is available on some versions too.
