For The Seat Mii is remarkably grown-up to drive for a city car. It’s also economical and well built, and cheaper than the virtually identical VW Up.
Against Seat is renowned for its Latin design flair, so it’s a shame the Mii looks so plain. The cheaper Skoda Citigo is virtually identical in all but exterior styling.
The Seat Mii is one of the best city cars on the market – it’s great to drive, well built and surprisingly spacious. However, we think the cheaper Skoda Citigo or classier VW Up make more sense.

If urban driving is all you intend to do, then the lower-powered 59bhp Seat Mii is adequate. However, if you plan to head out of town on a regular basis, the gutsier 74bhp model is a better bet.
S, Ecomotive, SE and Sport trims are available, but the most basic S trim doesn’t get much more than an MP3 point and four airbags. Step up to Ecomotive – which we’d recommend – and you’ll get electric front windows, stability control, remote central locking and air-con. SE includes alloys, leather steering wheel and a smarter-looking dash, while flagship Sport models add stiffer suspension, sports seats and front foglights.
Seat’s portable infotainment system, which is available as an option on all trims, gives you an onboard computer, a sat-nav system and Bluetooth in a single removable device.
If you’re pondering which VW Group city car to go for, it’s a tough call to split the Mii and Citigo – although the little Skoda is fractionally cheaper than Seat’s Mii.
This is the cheapest Mii to run – and, if you have your heart set on a Mii, is the one to go for.
