SEAT's Mii by MANGO available to order now
May 12, 2014: >Special edition created in collaboration with Spanish fashion label Luxury trim and unique style with low running costs
The order books have opened for Mii by MANGO, SEAT’s most highly specified compact car yet.
Built on the belief that thinking small shouldn’t mean sacrificing on style, the special edition’s arrival is the result of a collaboration between SEAT and influential Spanish fashion company MANGO.
Available in both three and five-door bodystyles, priced at £10,995 and £11,345 respectively, this newcomer is a flagship addition to the Barcelona-based brand’s successful Mii family.
Sharing the model’s already appreciated attributes of quality and impressive packaging, coupled with running costs which are among the lowest in the segment, Mii by MANGO builds on this with additional beauty in the detail.
Boasting a lengthy list of additional standard features, over the Sport on which it is based, fashion meets functionality in a car that’s all about youthful yet tasteful design.
The first visual cue to this catwalk-inspired edition is the Mii by MANGO badging and choice of colour schemes. Uniquely, there’s the option of either custom-palette Nude 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.
Emphasising its status as a halo model, Mii by MANGO also benefits from an interior makeover. The unique leather and perforated alcantara upholstery adds an aura of real luxury with the contrast piping and stitching, as well as branded door sills, floor mats and key fobs, creating a bespoke feel to the cabin environment.
Mii by MANGO wants for nothing in the way of equipment either, with remote central locking, electric windows, air conditioning, Isofix anchoring points and a suite of airbags for the safety conscious. The SEAT Portable System Live adds to the driving experience, with satellite navigation, bluetooth hands-free connectivity and audio streaming for the musically minded.
Additionally, a Mii by MANGO Style Pack is available as an option. This includes a panoramic glass sunroof and front fog lights for £690.
The MANGO edition’s launch also coincides with ESC, tyre pressure monitoring and Hill Hold Control becoming standard on all Mii trim levels.
Despite making a fashion statement, Mii by MANGO won’t disappoint on the move. Powered exclusively by the higher output 75PS version of the VW Group’s three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine with five-speed manual gearbox means there’s adequate performance matched with impressive eco credentials. The vital statistics are: 0-62mph in 13.2 seconds; 108g/km CO2; 60.1mpg combined.
Representing a unique proposition in the fast-growing small car arena, Mii by MANGO can be ordered from SEAT dealers now with first deliveries expected in August.
