Seat released more info and a large photo gallery of the Mii, the Spanish twin sister of Volkswagen Up! and Skoda Citigo that is due to enter the market in Spring 2012 in both 3 and 5 door configurations. Initially, the only engine option available will be a 3-cylinder 1.0 petrol unit -available in power steps of 59 and 74 hp - coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox and boasting CO2 emissions of 97 g/km. A sequential automatic transmission will also be made available at a later time, while a 1.0 methane engine delivering 68 hp with CO2 emission level of only 86 g/km is also waiting in the wings.
Seat Mii measures 3.56 meters in length, 1.64 meters in width, 1.48 meters in height and weights only 854 kg, thanks in no small part to the new super light 3-cylinder engine (69 kg). Other numbers include a 35 litre capacity fuel tank, 251 litres of load capacity in the luggage compartment (which can go up to 951 litres when the rear seats are folded) and a drag coefficient of 0,32. The Mii also comes with innovative technologies such as City Safety Assist (a laser sensor acting on the brakes in case of emergency), SEAT Portable System (a removable 5″ multi-media device integrated into the car’s audio system that can be used as sat-nav, hands-free phone and on-board computer) and also more ‘normal’ features like ABS, adjustable steering column and side airbags.
As for the interior, the perfect ergonomics of the instruments and the control elements fit beautifully with the premium surfaces that can be individualized using colored trim from the various equipment lines. Seat Mii uses brand new seats as well, with integrated head restraints. The model will come with one of two equipment packages, Chic and Sport, each one offering special color and trim elements for interior individualization. To cut it short, Seat Mii is the perfect car for modern-day urban use. Click on the ‘Continue reading’ link below the thumbnails to check out its full technical specs.
