2020 Kia Soluto: The 4 variants in detail

kia soluto

The Ayala Corp. took over the reigns of Kia in early 2019, re-launching the South Korean car brand via subsidiary AC Industrials. The reintroduction came with the unveiling of a batch of new models, including the new Soluto sedan.

Known as the Pegas in China, where the car is assembled, the Soluto is Kia's latest contender in the subcompact sedan category, where it competes against heavyweights such as theHonda City and the number one car in the land, the Toyota Vios.

Lovingly known as the 'Baby Kia Rio,' the 2020 Kia Soluto—a carryover from 2019—shares more than a few design cues with its older and bigger brother. All of the Soluto’s four trims are powered by a 1.4-liter Kappa Dual-CVVT gasoline engine that dishes out 94hp and 132Nm of torque, sending all its power to the front wheels via a four-speed auto or five-speed manual transmission, depending on trim. The automatic gearbox in particular, has a smart selector that offers precise and fuel-efficient gear transition.

Though a compact car through and through, the 2570mm wheelbase proves the Soluto’s interior spaciousness. Available colors for the Kia Soluto are Clear White, Blue Stream, Titanium Silver, and Aurora Black Pearl. A fifth color, Marcato Red, is an added paint option for the EX trims.

Inside, comfy seating for five is provided by soft-padded seats and a smartly styled interior design that allows for plenty of room to stretch, even for full-size adults. Circles characterize the dashboard design, starting with the rotary AC switches, 360-degree rotating airducts (EX variants only), and contemporary-looking instrument panel. An Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible audio system, 2.8-inch LCD cluster, and steering-wheel-incorporated audio remote control provide the Soluto driver with enhanced creature comforts.

As for what differentiates the Kia Soluto’s four trims from one another, here are the details.
