How much does the SEAT MII cost to run?

The 1.0L petrol is the most economical SEAT MII to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The SEAT MII 1.0L petrol is free to tax, as it sits in tax band A.

It does just under 69 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Suzuki Celerio 1.0L petrol and the more thirsty Citroen C1 1.0L petrol.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 2, which is lower than the Citroen C1 1.0L petrol, but higher than the Skoda Citigo 1.0L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Fiat Panda has the lowest insurance group.)

SEAT MII: How big is the boot?

The SEAT MII has an above average boot space (250 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Smart Fortwo coupe is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and one large bag with its 307 litres.

Is the SEAT MII easy to park?

This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower Kia Picanto.

If you don’t park in the street that much, then the MII is fine. It will go in to an average street slot, giving you a gap of 1243mm to swing in and out. But if you street park a lot you may want to look at the Smart Fortwo.

Which SEAT MII has the best performance?

The fastest SEAT MII from 0-60, is the 1.0L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 95 lbs/ft torque and 75 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 13.2 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Fiat Panda 1.2L diesel, which will beat your SEAT MII to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
