Seat And Spanish Fashion Retailer Join Forces To Produce The Mii By Mango
MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – Jan 22, 2014: SEAT, the Spanish brand synonymous with beautifully styled cars, is strengthening its design ties with a collaboration deal struck with Spanish multinational fashion retailer MANGO. The first fruit of the partnership is announced today: the Mii by MANGO.
The Mii by MANGO is a special edition of SEAT’s practical city car, and will make its official debut at the upcoming 080 Barcelona Fashion event, from 27 to 31 January.
The tie-up between the two Spanish companies will result in further activities that will combine SEAT’s characteristic driving enjoyment through the latest technology with MANGO’s innovative fashion design.
The new SEAT Mii by MANGO stands out thanks to its attractive interior and exterior design, featuring two exterior paint options: Nude, which is unique to Mii by MANGO, and Deep Black. The car is further distinguished by specific exterior side mouldings, dark grey 15-inch alloy wheels, heated electric door mirrors, and the “Mii by MANGO” lettering on the left side of the rear hatch and the B-pillar.

The front and rear seats feature exclusive Alcantara upholstery with Nude trim and the lettering “Mii by MANGO” stitched onto the headrests.
Furthermore, SEAT’s new model includes a practical hook to hang a handbag safely, and a mirror on the driver sun visor, as well as specifically designed floor mats, door sills and key fob.
