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.
