Not good! SEAT has let slip a few images of the 2017 model year Mii, which will undoubtedly join the Leon facelift at this fall's big motor show. However, there aren't any major changes.
The Mii has always been the dopy-looking sister car of the Up! and Citigo. It's also sold the fewest numbers because its sister cars have much better marketing and dealer networks behind them.

While the Up! received some substantial upgrades earlier this year, SEAT is being denied nearly all the good stuff. Comparing this to the Latin flair of the updated Fiat 500 would be a crime.

There's nothing pleasing on the engine front either. While the Ibiza, Leon, and Ateca all have the latest EcoTSI turbocharged 1-liter engine, the Mii isn't getting one. We are talking about a unit that's becoming available on the Up!. Since both are made on the same assembly line, it's a shame SEAT is missing out.

The 15 PS power increase that would have been made would have been nothing compared to the massive 160 Nm wave of torque.

On the outside, we'll see new colors and the option to have contrasting roof and mirrors. According to our insider information, the current 12 trim levels will be narrowed down to just 7. Also, the Mii Mango will be replaced by the Mii Cosmopolitan for 2017.

The current silver paint finish will be replaced by "Blue Coast", which is a carbon copy of the Blue Alor from the Leon. Chic trim levels will have the option for 15-inch alloys and a combination of Alcantara and fabric for the seats. Style, Chic and Sport models will be available with automatic climate control functions, which look just like those for the Ibiza.

Inside, the 2017 Mii will feature the SEAT Portable System, similar to what we saw yesterday for the 2017 Skoda Citigo. A few comfort feature complete the update and include a home light, rain and light sensors and cruise control.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
