What used Seat Mii hatchback will I get for my budget?
You can find an early Mii for £3000, and a lot of them are well-equipped SE cars. If you want a more practical five-door model, expect to pay a few hundred pounds extra. Increase your budget to between £4500 and £5000 for a tidy 2015 car with below-average mileage from a dealer. A Design Mii from 2016 will be about £5500, while a year-old top-spec FR-Line should start at £7500.

How much does it cost to run a Seat Mii hatchback?
The Seat Mii gets good fuel economy. Ecomotive variants are even better, because they’re fitted with low-rolling-resistance tyres and an engine stop-start system to reduce consumption to an official (NEDC) 68.9mpg, but most models should achieve an MPG figure in the mid to high-50s in the real world with or without fuel-saving technology.
Insurance should be cheap, too, helped by an automatic emergency braking system that should prevent or reduce the impact of low-speed collisions. This was a cheap option when new, so most Miis should have this fitted, but you should check whether your prospective purchase does.
Road tax will be free for Ecomotive-badged Miis registered before 1 April 2017, because their CO2 emissions are below 100g/km. The rest of the range will cost you a tiny amount, because the 59bhp engine emits 105g/km, while the 74bhp model chucks out 108g/km. Any Mii registered after 1 April 2017 will be charged the current flat-rate fee for road tax. Choosing an automatic gearbox doesn’t penalise you as it does in rival offerings, with lower CO2 figures than the manual. You can read more about road tax costs here.
Seat offers fixed prices for servicing and certain maintenance procedures, which will save you money on maintenance if you wish to take your car to a franchised dealership. This applies to all Seat cars up to 15 years of age.
