75 Sport 3dr

  • Average MPG 50 mpg

We were looking for a reliable. economical and safe second car which was also fun to drive. We tried other manufactures models and found VW Up, Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii models a superior drive to other manufacturers. We chose the Mii by Mango as it represented the best value for money and specification of the three. Its a great car both in and out of town. With the 75 BHP engine its even capable on motorways and its acceleration seems quicker than the official figures. The suspension is a marvel for such a small car dealing with poor road surfaces and speed bumps better than cars much bigger and more expensive. The steering is nicely balanced light in town and precise when at speed. With mixed driving the average economy is 50mpg. All backed up with the reassurance of build quality and 5 star NCAP rating. Spacious inside, to date we have carried three adults with comfort, with a good sat nav, bluetooth and media system in the maps and more package. Overall for such a small and inexpensive car it has proven to be excellent value for money and we hope to enjoy many years of fun economical driving

Early days yet, as only second week of ownership. Specced it up with alloy wheels, sunroof, mudflaps, armrest [a Β£179 addition, ouch!], driving pack, sat-nav [paid separately], auto-brake function, 5 years' warranty extension, metallic paint and paint protection. Currently on offer with 3 years' interest free credit [so doubt Skoda version a better finance deal] plus 3 years' free servicing thrown in. Got Β£372 off list price, paid max deposit and it's Β£126 per month. Prefer 'look' of SEAT to Skoda or VW versions. Good to drive, 5'10" friend sat easily in back, even with front passenger seat back. Plenty of 'toys' to play with [pity leather steering wheel/gear knob not an option on this spec]. All passengers like it so far. Only grumbles to date, [i] heating a bit hit & miss, frozen snow overnight ~ no heated windscreen [but heated rear window and door mirrors]; [ii] armrest fouls handbrake and seat belts [a review had pointed this out ~ I've developed a twisted left-hand routine to overcome this!]. Will update after a few months' usage. Happy to date with purchase.
