Seat Mii hatchback driving position
You get a good variety of adjustments, including for seat height, although the steering wheel adjusts only up and down, not in and out. Still, that’s not uncommon in this class, as is the fact that the backrest adjusts with a ratchet lever rather than an infinitely variable wheel arrangement. It means you might find that you can’t quite get the precise angle.
You also miss out on lumbar adjustment. Despite this, the seat is comfortable, even on a long journey.
There’s one bit of bad news: some folk complain that, unless you set the steering wheel abnormally high, you can’t see the majority of the speedometer. The good news is that the rest of the controls are dead simple and easy to use.
Seat Mii hatchback visibility
Electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors are standard, meaning you don’t have to lean across to adjust the passenger mirror. And because of the Mii’s boxy shape and large windows, all-round visibility is about as good as it gets, so nipping into even the tightest spaces isn’t something to dread.
The halogen headlights are pretty effective at night, too; you can’t upgrade them to brighter xenon or LED units, though, but you do get LED daytime running lights.
Seat Mii hatchback infotainment
All versions get a six-speaker 300W Beats stereo with a subwoofer in the boot, an AM/FM radio and Bluetooth connectivity. DAB radio fans will be disappointed to see that you can’t get it, even as an option.
A small colour screen is part of the inbuilt infotainment system. However, if you download the Drive Mii app to your smartphone, connect it to the USB port and stick it on the cradle atop the dashboard, this becomes an integrated component that offers features including TomTom sat-nav and a trip computer with eco driver training.
It all works pretty well, although the proper touchscreen systems with integrated sat-nav and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring that you get in the Kia Picanto and Hyundai i10 are better because they are less fiddly to use.
Seat Mii hatchback build quality
As is the case with almost every other city car, the Mii’s interior is built from hard and unforgiving materials. However, the general construction is extremely solid and the plastics are textured in such a way that they feel anything but cheap.
Depending on whether you go for Design Mii or FR-Line trim, you get a white or gloss-black dashboard panel that jazzes up the look inside. For a bit of swish, both versions have a leather steering wheel and gearknob.
