Bringing together a mix of modern design cues and added technology, the Spanish manufacturer's I-TECH line of special edition models offer U.K. buyers savings of up to £480. Models that benefit from this special treatment are the Mii, Ibiza, Toledo, Altea and Altea XL MPVs and the Alhambra minivan.
The first member of the model lineup to welcome the new addition is the Mii city car. Replacing the former Toca version, the I-TECH edition slots between the SE and Sport trim levels, costing £9,995 in three-door guise and £10,345 in five-door. Powered by a nippy three-cylinder 1-liter engine offering a super-frugal 62.8 miles per gallon, the Seat Mii I-TECH comes with 14-inch alloy wheels boasting a titanium finish, an unique key cover and black upholstery with a gloss grey dashboard panel. Seat Portable System Live is also part of the package, offering satelitte navigation, Bluetooth phone connectivity with digital audio streaming, a micro SD card slot and integrated trip computer functions.

Priced from £13,790, the Seat Ibiza I-TECH comes in three bodystyles: SC, five-door and ST. Based on the SE trim level, the B-segment hatchback comes with the 1.2-liter TSI motor boasting with 105 PS and a manual transmission. The special pack adds 16-inch titanium finish alloys rims and B-pillar I-TECH badges, as well as an unique dark blue cloth and simil leather upholstery with embossed logos, I-TECH floor mats and sill plates. As for the Seat Toledo, the £17,015 I-TECH trim level adds 16-inch 'Design' alloy wheels, grey alcantara and black simil leather upholstery, special badging and modern metallic dashboard inlays.

The aging Altea and Altea XL models also benefit from the I-TECH makeover. Starting at £19,345 for the Altea 1.6 TDI Ecomotive and rising to £20,865 for the XL 2.0 TDI, both nameplates get dual-zone climate control, power windows, sliding rear seats, Hill Hold Control and fornt and rear parking sensors. A central roof-mounted TFT screen is fitted in the rear, designed to be a good distraction for the kids during those long motorway journeys. The driver and passenger can entertain themselves with sat nav, DAB radio, a 5-inch colour touchscreen, an SD card slot and Bluetooth. 16-inch ‘Elio’ alloy wheels with titanium finish, auto headlights, rain sensing wipers and a tire pressure monitoring system round the packages nicely.

Last but not least, the fifth and final member of the Seat stable to benefit from I-TECH’s introduction is the family-oriented Alhambra minivan. Slotting in between SE and SE Lux, it offers 17-inch ‘Dynamic’ alloy wheels with titanium finish, sport-style front seats, chrome and black brushed interior and keyless entry & go. Like its compact Altea siblings, it also boasts the Seat Media System 2.2 including satellite navigation, 5-inch colour touchscreen, DAB radio, SD card slot and Bluetooth connectivity. Powered by the 2.0 TDI, the Alhambra I-TECH is available with either a manual or auto gearbox, costing £28,630 or £29,915.
