The SEAT Portable System includes a complete navigation system, with five-inch touch screen and voice recognition. As well as showing you the best route through current traffic, it can even take you to the closest petrol station or the best restaurant in town.

It’s portable, too, helping you find your way on foot as conveniently as it does when you’re behind the wheel.

Talking when driving is no problem with the hands-free Bluetooth function. Powerful speakers ensure clarity of reception, while the SEAT Portable System shows you who is calling. You can also manage your phonebook and listen to incoming texts instead of stopping to read them.

For even safer driving you can add the City Safety Assist to your standard equipment. It constantly keeps looking out for objects and other cars in the road ahead, braking automatically to prevent collisions below 30km/h.

All the information you need at the touch of a button. The on-board computer provides up-to-date information about your car, including current and average fuel consumption and the range of your New SEAT Mii. You can also access information including outside temperature, coolant temperature and continuously display the rev counter, so you know you’re driving most efficiently.

With the Rear Parking Sensor you avoid bumps and easily fit into the tiniest parking spaces. When you’re driving in the city, it’s great to have a co-pilot. And with the Cruise Control also long-distance driving becomes a pleasure.
