SEAT Mii – five doors bring even more versatility
- Optimum usability in a super-compact package
- Mii Ecomotive with just 96 grams CO2/km
- Innovative City Safety Assist and SEAT Portable System
- Deliveries start early summer 2012
SEAT Mii – five doors bring even more versatility
SEAT is expanding the Mii line-up – the young city car is even more versatile as a five-door. The additional rear doors turn the super-compact SEAT into a unique combination of exceptional driving fun, sporty design and outstanding functionality. At the same time, the Mii remains true to SEAT principles – making it a highly affordable pleasure with excellent value-for money and low cost-of-ownership. Deliveries of the five-door SEAT Mii start in early summer 2012.
The Mii scores top marks in fuel consumption and efficiency thanks to its systematic lightweight design and its highly efficient drives. This applies in particular to the new Mii Ecomotive, which will also join the line-up this summer. Thanks to a start/stop system, recuperation and further initiatives to improve fuel consumption, it makes do with just 4.1 litres of fuel per 100 km, equating to CO2 emissions of only 96 grams/km for the 44kW (60hp) version and 4.2 and 98 grams for the 55kW (75hp)version.
“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,” says James Muir, President of SEAT, S.A. “With its distinctive SEAT identity, its youthful design and its high quality standards, the five-door Mii 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.”
The Package – five doors make it even more universal
The compact format of just 3.56 metres long makes the Mii the perfect companion for today’s urban environments. Yet, thanks to its optimum use of space, it offers plenty of room for four. With a volume of 251 litres, the Mii also boasts one of the largest luggage compartments in its class, expanding to no less than 951 litres with the rear seat back folded forward.
The new five-door offers even more functionality within an unchanged exterior format. The rear doors, with their wide opening angle, make for straightforward access to and egress from the rear bench – small children can be fastened into their child seats with ease, shopping bags can be stowed behind the front seats in one simple movement. With their compact dimensions, the doors also enable easy entry and exit even in tight parking spaces.
The unusually large surface area of the rear side windows ensures the best possible all-round visibility, while the pop-out function delivers optimum ventilation combined with a high degree of safety for children travelling in the rear.
And the feeling of spaciousness that is inherent in the Mii will be reinforced by the addition to the range of a panoramic sunroof from March. The glass roof will extend back most of the length of the Mii’s roof, giving a panoramic view to all occupants. To prevent interior temperatures from becoming uncomfortable on warm and sunny days, there is a sliding blind which can be drawn across the roof to block sunlight from entering.
As well as providing added light into the cabin, the roof can be opened. Occupants can choose to open the roof by tilting it upwards for a little ventilation or it can be opened more fully by sliding it back externally.
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.
“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 and desires,” says Dr. Matthias Rabe, SEAT Vice-President for Research and Development. “With its low weight and modern drives, 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.”
The Design – strong character with sporty individuality
As a five-door, too, the Mii retains the strong character of its distinctive design. One decisive factor is the perfect proportions, arising from the width of 1.64 metres, the long wheelbase of 2.42 metres and the exceptionally short overhangs front and rear. The steeply angled rear end facilitates the Mii’s incredibly generous interior space – optimum functionality is particularly important in the sub-compact segment.
The additional rear doors fit perfectly and very discreetly into the clearly defined side view. The roof contour remains unchanged, while the rear roof pillar retains its broad and powerful form. The window line runs a little lower than on the three-door and is emphasised in the side aspect by the clear shadow line. The powerful door handles indicate the Mii’s high level of quality and solidity
In its five-door format, too, the Mii is immediately recognisable as a member of the SEAT family, while its new headlamp form marks a development in the SEAT design language. Its side view is characterised by the distinctive wheel arches and clean surfaces, and the rear end also displays a new light design featuring triangular light elements.
“The Mii is a real character as a five-door, too – modern and expressive, yet timeless,” says Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Head of SEAT Design. “The Mii is a unique combination of sporty chic and design quality with outstanding everyday usability.”
The Drive – Ecomotive with top marks in fuel consumption
When it comes to technology and equipment, the five-door matches the three-door version point for point. Beneath the bonnet is a completely new generation of engines. The compact three-cylinder with a one-litre displacement is very light, compact and smooth-running. In two outputs of 44 and 55 kW (60 and 75 hp), it ensures fleet-footed agility and compelling dynamics – and not just in city traffic. With a top speed of 160 and 171 km/h, its fuel consumption comes in at just 4.5 and 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres. Its 35-litre tank delivers long range and enduring driving fun – paired with very low cost-of-ownership.
The new Ecomotive versions of the Mii are particular masters of efficiency – also with 44 and 55 kW (60 and 75 hp). Thanks to a start/stop system, recuperation and other consumption reducing initiatives, they consume a mere 4.1 and 4.2 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres respectively, equating to a CO2 figures of just 96 and 98 grams/km.
The Safety – the Mii looks ahead
The Mii is also a leader when it comes to innovative technologies. City Safety Assist delivers added safety in town – when a risk arises in city traffic the Mii brakes automatically to prevent a possible impact.
At speeds lower than 30km/h, a laser sensor can identify another vehicle or obstacle in the direction of travel, regardless of if that object is stationary or moving. If the system detects a risk of an impact and the driver hasn’t applied any braking force, the system then applies the brakes fully or helps the driver to apply maximum braking force. In many cases City Safety Assist can help to avoid an accident altogether or, at the very least, mitigate its severity.
The Infotainment – unique tool aids efficient driving
The innovative SEAT Portable System is, of course, part of standard equipment. The innovative solution with a 5-inch touchscreen can be removed for mobile use, yet is perfectly integrated into the vehicle electronics. Its many functions include navigation system, hands-free phone capability with voice control and an on-board computer. The SEAT Portable System can be combined with the integrated radio and speaker system.
SEAT ramps up its product offensive at Geneva Motor Show with three new models
- Toledo Concept: close-to-production study of the new mid-range saloon
- New Ibiza: SEAT’s icon refreshed with added visual impact
- Mii 5-door: first public appearance of SEAT’s smart city mover
- SEAT’s product offensive to drive for growth continues
SEAT ramps up its product offensive at Geneva Motor Show with three new models
Geneva, 06.03.2012 – At the Geneva Motor Show, SEAT’s President James Muir unveiled the next phase of the brand’s product offensive in the form of a close-to-production study – the dramatic Toledo Concept. It combines the proportions of a classic saloon car with a very sophisticated and sporty, almost coupé-like design.
Two other new models were also presented, underlining the Spanish brand’s ongoing product offensive – the new Ibiza hatchback and Mii city car in five-door format.
The Toledo Concept represents a preview of a production model that will be inspired by this Concept model. The production version will appear on the European market before the end of 2012 and heralds the return of the famous Toledo name to the SEAT range.
Impressive space in compact dimensions
The next generation of the SEAT Toledo is an exceptional combination of emotion, outstanding design quality and rational usability. But its striking design does not compromise the functionality. The Toledo Concept offers impressive spaciousness within compact dimensions.
Within its length of 4.48 metres, the new Toledo will offer a generously proportioned interior for five people, a luggage compartment of more than 500 litres and the convenience of a large rear hatch and folding rear bench. Thus, the future Toledo manages to reconcile perfectly the apparently incompatible – combining an almost coupé-like profile with the comparable functionality of an estate car.
Speaking at the SEAT press conference, James Muir said: “SEAT’s growth through 2012 and beyond will be built on a platform of new products that reflect our commitment to the highest levels of quality, precision and dynamism”.
As well as the new Toledo Concept, SEAT also used the occasion of the Geneva Motor Show to display the new Ibiza for the first time. As the best-selling model in the brand’s range, the Ibiza benefits from an extensively updated exterior design.
The changes to the Ibiza’s styling bring added presence and precision to the car’s appearance, drawing inspiration from SEAT’s new design language that has been showcased on its recent concept cars, the IBE, IBX and IBL.
Sporty character and high product quality are written all over the new Ibiza’s face. The distinctive centrepiece is the trapezoidal grille featuring the SEAT logo. The flatter proportions and horizontal honeycomb structure of the grille and the lower air intake emphasise the width of the new Ibiza.
Another key change is in the design of the headlights. The edgy style of the lamps is a hallmark feature of the new SEAT design language, while being perfectly integrated into the Ibiza’s sculptural form. The headlamps are available in two halogen versions or with optional bi-xenon lamps and LED daytime running lights. The latter trace the form of the headlamps to deliver a unique light signature, as do the optional LED rear lights. Customer deliveries will begin later in the spring.
New Mii 5D
SEAT’s recently introduced Mii city car has gained a new five door configuration. The five-door version offers even more functionality within an unchanged exterior format. The rear doors, with their wide opening angle, make for straightforward access to and egress from the rear bench – small children can be fastened into their child seats with ease, shopping bags can be stowed behind the front seats in one simple movement. With their compact dimensions, the doors also enable easy entry and exit even in tight parking spaces.
And the feeling of spaciousness that is inherent in the Mii will be reinforced by the addition to the range of a panoramic sunroof from March. The glass roof will extend back most of the length of the Mii’s roof, giving a panoramic view to all occupants. Customer deliveries will begin in the summer.
SEAT’s ongoing product offensive will drive the brand’s ambitions for growth, with recently updated versions of the Exeo sedan and the recent introduction of the Mii city car. Additionally, SEAT’s plans for growth will be supported by the launch of the brand into the dynamic Chinese market in the coming months.
