Love it or hate it: this is the Seat Mii Miinx

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 12, 2012

Love it or hate it! Cornwall dealership Dales SEAT is offering a bright pink Mii Miinx that’s the complete opposite to the ‘black viper’ Mii Vibora Negra unveiled last July. Sales Manager Tom Rawlings wanted to do “something different” and the Miinx was created as a one-off show car. The dealership chose a Mii Sport in Deep Black metallic as the basis for the still-to-be-named car.

Pink gloss vinyl wrap was used to cover the Mii’s bodywork. Meanwhile, the lights get a more prominent, contrasting appearance from its tint using a translucent film. As soon as the wrap was applied, Dales showed a picture on Twitter where it asked for ideas for its name. It was referred to as ‘Miinky’ for a while but they settled on the Miinx sobriquet name eventually.

The Miinx is a standard three-door Mii Sport so its power is derived from a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine with 75 PS. It offers an impressive lineup of generous standard equipment, which includes a set of 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, leather steering wheel and gear knob, dark tinted rear windows, front fog lights, and sports suspension.

The Mii Miinx may be compact but if offers a bold statement. Its price tag of RRP of £11,500 makes it cost-effective as well. Dales said that for every car sold, it will give £100 to the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.

“One thing’s for sure – the Miinx is a car that always provokes a strong reaction, good or bad,” said Tom Rawlings. “We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to the special edition since we launched it. From the day we first parked it outside our showroom, people have made a point of coming in to tell us what they think. “The car’s also divided opinion on Twitter. I tweeted a photo and within minutes hundreds of people were commenting about it. But we couldn’t believe it when people from all over the place started calling the dealership to enquire about the car. We’ve obviously done something right,” he added.
