Adult occupant

The SEAT Mii has been scrutinised by Euro NCAP and the car is structurally identical to the Volkswagen up! and has the same interior fittings. SEAT has informed Euro NCAP that the Mii also has the same levels of safety equipment as the up!. Accordingly, Euro NCAP believes that the star rating of the up! can also be applied to the SEAT Mii. In the frontal impact, the passenger compartment remained stable. Maximum points were scored for protection of the passenger dummy. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. It was demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, most body areas had adequate protection. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection of the driver's chest. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear and the system was not rewarded by Euro NCAP. The dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in the passenger seat without first disabling the airbag are not clearly labelled in the car.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided mostly good protection to pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was poor in all areas tested and scored no points. In those areas where a child's head might strike, the bonnet provided poor protection. In those areas where an adult's head would strike, protection was mixed, some areas providing good protection and others poor.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard in most European countries but optional on some variants in some countries. SEAT provided information to show that it will meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements for 2011, and the system passed the test requirements. A seatbelt reminder system is standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats. A speed limitation device is not offered on the Mii.
