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 slightly cheaper Skoda Citigo is virtually identical in all but exterior styling.
What Car? says
The Seat Mii is one of the best city cars around; it's great to drive, cheap to run and well built. However, we think the cheaper Skoda Citigo and classier VW Up make more sense.

There are 14 Seat Mii versions available
Target Price team says:
If urban driving is all you intend to do, then the 59bhp Mii is perfectly adequate. If you plan to head out of town on a regular basis, however, the gutsier 74bhp model is a better bet.
There are several trim levels available, but the cheapest (S) doesn't get much more than an MP3 point, four airbags and stability control. Step up to Ecomotive – which we'd recommend – and you'll get electric front windows, remote central locking and air-con. SE adds alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel and a smarter-looking dashboard, while more expensive versions come with sat-nav and Bluetooth.
If you're pondering which VW Group city car to buy, it's a tough call to split the Mii and similarly priced Skoda Citigo (the VW Up is more expensive than either, so makes sense only if you can afford it). Of the two, the little Skoda has the best finance deals, so it's what we'd go for.
