Making use of the Volkswagen up! and Skoda Citigo platform owned by the VW Group, The SEAT Mii city car is another strong contender with stylish looks. Well built and already hugely popular in Spain, the SEAT Mii also uses the same 1.0-litre three cylinder engine. Buyers have the choice of either 60bhp or 75bhp models seprated by five distinct trims levels including S, Ecomotive, SE/Toca, Sport and Mango.
- Excellent build quality
- Spacious inside
- Entertaining handling
- Entry-level model is spartan
- Some interior trim quality not great
- Running costs not as low as they should be
The SEAT Mii is available as a practical hatchback only, with a choice of three or five doors. It's cheaper than its VW up! sister model and about on par with the Skoda Citigo, making it a great choice for value-conscious buyers. With entertaining handling, an eager petrol engine, decent standard equipment and smart looks, the Mii has a lot going for it and is one of our favourite city cars.
