Seat Mii now available to order

Seat Mii now available to order

The three door Seat Mii will be entering the market alongside its siblings the Skoda Citigo and Volkswagen Up, so competition isn't scarce.

The Mii offers three trim levels from launch: S, SE and Sport. The entry level S trim starts from £7,845 and offers some basic exterior features including black plastic door handles and mirrors and 14-inch steel wheels.

The S trim adds some fundamental interior features including speed-variable power steering and MP3-compatible CD player with two speakers. If you want air conditioning then you have to specify the S A/C version of the S trim, which will cost you £8,345.

Next in the line-up is the Mii Ecomotive model which, although it's not technically a separate trim level, adds electric front windows, body coloured exterior plastics and a more flexible seating arrangement.

The Ecomotive's most significant addition to the Mii is a 1.0-litre 59bhp petrol engine that delivers the best fuel economy in the range as it emits 96g/km and returns up to 67.3 mpg, due to the addition of a stop and start system. The Mii Ecomotive costs £9,180.

The mid range SE trim adds some minor aesthetic changes including a gloss white dashboard, a leather steering wheel and 14-inch alloy wheels. The SE trim ranges from £9,275 to £10,390, the latter adding an automatic gearbox.

The Sport trim level builds on the SE with dark tinted windows, front fog lights, 15-inch alloy wheels and a darker upholstery design. The Sport trim costs £9,980.

The entry level S model comes with a 1.0-litre 59bhp petrol emitting 105g/km. The SE model also offers this engine but with the choice of a 73bhp power output, which emits the same 105g/km.

The Sport model is offered with same engine options as the SE model, but its 73bhp power output emits CO2 emissions of 108g/km.
