Given the Mii is mechanically identical to the Up, it’s no surprise to see SEAT’s city car performing very similarly to Volkswagen’s. SEAT itself will be pleased that, like-for-like, Mii drivers are getting better returns than their Up equivalents, especially as the Mii is cheaper across the board – that’s the outworking of brand image cultivation right there. Speaking of which, there’s a Mii by Mango version available, should you ever become interested in purchasing a car named after a concession inside House of Fraser.
