What alternatives should I consider to a used Seat Mii hatchback?
The Hyundai i10 would be the city car to go for if you need more interior space, because it's one of the roomiest in its class. However, it isn’t as much fun to drive and doesn’t have a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
At the other end of the scale is the bargain-priced Suzuki Celerio, which is more practical than the Mii, because it has three seats in the rear, rather than two. Its interior isn’t quite as nice, though, and its safety rating isn’t as good.
The major problem for the Seat Mii comes from its stablemates rather than its rivals. If you want the best value, the Skoda Citigo is essentially the same car with a different badge. You can find more of them for sale, for a start, and can often get a top-spec Elegance model for similar money to a mid-range Mii. And then there's the Volkswagen Up, which is even more plentiful and doesn’t cost that much more to buy.
