Seat Mii Vibora Negra: Priced from £9,473

The Vibora Negra pack is a range of styling upgrades for the Seat Mii  city car and includes black stripes for the body, 14- or 15-inch alloy wheels, a spoiler and side skirts and a black gloss gear knob and chequered dashboard.

The host of design updates costs £1,628 if specified with 14-inch wheels, rising to £1,740 if buyers opt for larger 15-inch alloys.

The items can be specified individually on standard Mii models, but when bought as a complete pack feature a 10% discount, saving £160. This means you could pick up a Mii Vibora Negra edition based on the entry-level S trim for £9,473.

But it will still go like a normal Seat Mii

Seat Mii Vibora Negra: Same 1.0-litre engine

The special edition Mii uses the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine as the standard car, in either 59 or 74bhp guise. Efficiency is good from both variants, with the less powerful car returning a claimed 62.8mpg combined with 105g/km CO2 emissions, meaning £20 car tax (VED).

The 74bhp version boasts similar efficiency – 60.1mpg combined with 108g/km CO2 emissions, equating to the same £20 car tax (VED).

An even more economical Ecomotive version of the 59bhp car is available; returning 68.9mpg with 96g/km CO2 it means free car tax (VED) and exemption from the London Congestion Zone charge.

The Vibora Negra upgrades are available now through Seat dealerships.
