SEAT Mii 5dr


Following the introduction of the five-door VW up! and Skoda Citigo, now please welcome the SEAT version, the Mii 5-dor.

Basically the same as the other cars, the Spanish car gets its own unique face, and also an ecomotive version which offers even more economy. Meanwhile the additional rear doors turn the super-compact SEAT into a unique combination of exceptional driving fun, sporty design and outstanding functionality.

In either three- or five-door form the Mii scores top marks for fuel consumption and emissions thanks to its lightweight design and efficient drivetrains.  This applies in particular to the newly-announced Mii Ecomotive. Thanks to a start/stop system, brake energy recovery and other measures to improve fuel economy, the Mii Ecomotive makes do with just 4.1 litres of fuel per 100 km, equating to CO2 emissions of only 96 g/km  for the 60 PS version and 4.2 litres per 100 km – 98 g/km – for the 75 PS Mii.

Seat press release:

James Muir, President of SEAT, S.A.  said: ‘The new Mii has enjoyed a terrific start.  Customer response in Spain is outstanding and we are now bringing the entire line-up to the other European markets – complete with the three-door, five-door and Ecomotive versions.

‘With its distinctive SEAT identity, its youthful design and its high quality standards, the five-door i in particular is set to capture a significant share of the sub-compact segment. This makes the Mii an important factor in our corporate strategy.  The Mii marks the start of the most extensive model offensive ever undertaken by SEAT.’

Five doors make the Mii even more appealing

The car’s compact format – it is just 3.56 metres long – makes the Mii the perfect companion for today’s urban environment.  Yet, thanks to its optimum use of space, it offers plenty of room for four adults.  With a volume of 251 litres the Mii also boasts one of the largest luggage compartments in its class, expanding to an impressive 951 litres with the rear seat back folded.

The new five-door, of course, offers even greater functionality within an unchanged footprint.  The rear doors boast a wide opening angle and thus make for straightforward access to the rear bench.  Small children can be fastened into their child seats with ease, shopping bags can be simply stowed behind the front seats and, with their compact dimensions, the rear doors also enable easy entry and exit even in tight parking spaces.

The especially large area of the rear side windows ensures great all-round visibility, while the pop-out function delivers ventilation combined with a high degree of safety for children travelling in the rear.

The feeling of spaciousness that is inherent in the SEAT Mii is reinforced by the addition of an optional panoramic sunroof.  The large glass roof extends back most of the length of the Mii’s roof to deliver a panoramic view for all four occupants.  Naturally, to prevent interior temperatures from becoming uncomfortably warm on sunny days, there is a sliding roof blind.

As well as providing more light in the cabin, the roof can be opened via a slide and tilt function.  So, Mii occupants can choose to open the roof by tilting it upwards for a little ventilation or open it more fully by sliding it back over the roof of the car.

In terms of on-board occupant safety, head restraints for the rear seat passengers and child locks on the rear doors are, of course, standard equipment.

Dr Matthias Rabe, SEAT Vice-President for Research and Development, said: ‘The five-door is the perfect expansion to our Mii line-up.  Just as sporty, just as dynamic, but with a considerable increase in usability.  When it comes to urban mobility, the Mii fulfils all demands.

‘With its low weight and modern drivetrains, the Mii is both sporty and efficient at the same time.  This applies, especially, to the Ecomotive model with its exceptionally low consumption and emissions figures.’
