- NEW CAR NEWS – SEAT Mii by MANGO
SOUNDS like a case of Handbags and Gladrags for a new special edition model from SEAT.
(Yeah, you all know the versions by Stereophonics and Rod the Mod, but check out our DRIVING TUNES section for a lesser known take on the classic)
The new city slicker is called the Mii by MANGO – and its styling is straight off the catwalk.
And the Spanish brand has just opened the order book on what is its most highly specified compact car yet.
The model, a collaboration between the SEAT and fashion company MANGO, is available in both three and five-door body styles.
It is priced at £10,995 and £11,345 respectively and becomes the flagship addition to the Barcelona-based brand’s Mii family.
Exclusive to the model is the option of either custom-palette Nude paintwork with dark grey alloys or a Deep Black metallic hue and silver wheels.
Privacy glass plus contrasting side trim detailing and door mirrors complete the look.
As for equipment, the Mii by MANGO comes with remote central locking, electric windows, air-con and Isofix anchoring points.
And SEAT’s Portable System Live adds sat-nav, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and audio streaming.
Also up for grabs is a Mii by MANGO Style Pack, with panoramic glass sunroof and front fog lights, as a £690 option.
The MANGO edition’s launch also coincides with ESC, tyre pressure monitoring and Hill Hold Control becoming standard on all Mii trim levels.
Power comes via the higher output 75PS version of the Volkswagen group’s three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine with five-speed manual gearbox.
Its headline figures are 0-62mph in 13.2 seconds, 108g/km of CO2 and Combined fuel economy of 60.1mpg.
First deliveries are expected in August.
