The Spanish version of Volkswagen up! five-door revealed through the new SEAT Mii five-door.
both the three and five-door versions of the Mii are substantially different to look at than the VW , and the Skoda version, even though they’re all the same underneath.
The SEAT gets its own bumpers, headlights, and grille, plus triangular light elements and wheel design. It is instantly recognizable as a SEAT. It measures the same as the up! at 1.64 metres wide with a long wheelbase of 2.42 metres and offers the same clever package of compact exterior size but decent interior space.
The power is provided by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit which is about the same size as motor in your food blender, but churns out 60 PS. Those performance-minded buyers may want to go for the more powerful 75 PS version! That will do 171 km/h and has an average fuel consumption of 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The 6PS version does 4.5.
SEAT also offers an Ecomotive version with start/stop system, brake energy recovery technology and other consumption reducing initiatives.Available for both versions, it will do 4.1 litres per 100 kilometres equating to a CO2 figure of just 96 g/km for the 60 PS version, 4.2 litres per 100 km and 98 g/km for the 75 PS Mii.
The question is that between the three Volkswagen up!, Skoda Citigo, and SEAT Mii, which is the one to go for, regardless of the brand? They are all the same basically, but the original always feels a bit better.
