Kia Soluto Could be Good Consideration for Frontliners
Many—especially medical professionals—are in the hunt to buy a vehicle that they can use without breaking the bank.
For the likes of nurses, medical technicians, resident doctors and other health workers, their consideration reaches up to their needs to further help to keep people healthy and saving lives but also to better represent themselves.
With all those considerations at hand, Kia Philippines serves up the Soluto sub-compact sedan.
Although a little minute in size, the Soluto is packed with features designed to make life a bit less stressful for those who are constantly on the go.
Powering the Soluto is a 1.4-liter Kappa inline-4 engine with Dual CVVT (Continuous Variable Valve Timing) mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that produces around 94 horsepower and 132Nm of torque. A manual transmission variant is available.
Since healthcare workers are into much stress given the circumstances that their job entails, features such as six-speaker audio system controlled by a seven-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth device pairing, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto might somehow ease things a bit.
Bluetooth pairing also allows occupants to stay connected—ideal for medical professionals who constantly need to keep in touch with their patients and places of assignment.
The Soluto is fitted with safety features like rear parking sensors (for the EX) and a standard reverse camera amenities that go a long way in easing stress.
The simple clean overall look could better represent the dynamism of the person and health institution they are connected with.
The Kia brand has received recognitions for design, safety, quality, and performance from the likes of JD Power, Interbrands (Best Global Brands 2019), the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the World Car of the Year awards.
With the Ayala-owned AC Motors backing it up locally, the Kia Soluto has its 5-year/160,000 kilometer warranty and 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance.
The Kia Soluto is available in four variants:
- 1.4 LX MT: P665,000
- 1.4 LX AT: P710,000
- 1.4 EX MT: P710,000
