2012 Seat Mii subcompact car based on Volkswagen Up!


SEAT company is unveiling the Mii city car to provide transportation for the urban life. The new subcompact Mii city car provides practicality and high fuel efficiency along with innovative design.

The new SEAT Mii subcompact car is based on the Volkswagen Up! car. It will be offered with two 1.0-litre gasoline engines, with power output of 59 hp and 74 hp. And that is enough power to propel the 1879-lb car, which enable the Mii Ecomotive to produce only 97 g/km of CO2 emissions. While top speeds stand at 99 mph for the 59-hp engine and 106 mph for the 74-hp engine.

“The new Mii is the perfect partner for everyday urban life. It is young and fresh, thought through to the very last detail and built to the finest quality. The Mii brings clear SEAT identity to the sub-compact segment and is set to win a significant share of the market,’ said James Muir, President of SEAT S.A. ‘This is why the Mii is an important addition to the SEAT portfolio and a clear next step in our company strategy. With the Mii, we are starting the most comprehensive model offensive in SEAT history.”

Even though the new SEAT Mii seems compact, it still offers a slew of amenities such as a removal five-inch screen, navigation system, hands-free phone system with voice control and an on-board computer. The device can be combined with the integrated radio and speaker system.

The new Seat Mii subcompact car will go on sale at the end of this year at its home market, then will be available in other European countries in spring of 2012.
