Review Summary:

If you’re feeling a sense of déjà vu, or are simply convinced that the Mii looks much too similar to another vehicle, then give yourself a hi5 because you’re absolutely right. As a matter of fact, the Mii and Skoda Citigo are so closely related to the Volkswagen up!, that they’re produced in the very same factory!

Pros

Its dimensions and engine size are ideal for cruising the busy streets of the city.

Cons

Slightly on the pricier side when compared to its Korean rivals.

The design team has taken the miniscule Volkswagen up!, toyed with the front and rear end, slapped on a new set of wheels and of course, rebadged it. While their imagination didn’t take them very far with the design, the dimensions of the 2014 Seat Mii are ideal for the vehicle’s target audience. Catered to those who spend majority of their time within the city – navigating narrow streets and squeezing into the tightest of parking spots – the Seat Mii could prove to be the ideal urban runabout.

Far from hip, trendy and fancy, the cabin follows the mantra of sticking to the absolute bare essentials. While at first glance the dashboard could come off as overly dull, the use of body coloured paint along the door panels to liven up the interior, is a trick played by the Mii’s Korean rivals as well.

For a car of its dimensions and hailing from its class, not a whole lot of tech is expected, but that’s where the Seat Mii surprises. Not only is it equipped with Bluetooth and an on-board computer that calculates fuel economy and the like, but it is also kitted out with a CD player with MP3 capability, an Auxillary jack and also comes with a navigation system if you climb up high enough on the spec ladder; now that is impressive!

At the heart of the 2014 Seat Mii resides a 1.0 litre engine which churns out either 60 horsepower, or a slightly higher 75. The optional E-Ecomotive engines are sure to appeal to the green panthers, as it ensures the little Spanish sips less fuel and produces lower amounts of CO2 as well.

Although the UAE is a country where fuel is cheaper than milk and people prefer driving cars with a minimum seating capacity of seven individuals, the market for smaller, more sensible vehicles is undoubtedly on the rise. While some may hop into the Hyundai showroom and drive out with an i10, others wouldn’t mind spending a little more for a better equipped vehicle and a badge that weighs more.
