KIA Soluto Review
KIA Soluto Overview
Aimed at those family-oriented buyers who want an affordable and compact vehicle but with the aspirational value of a big sedan, the Kia Soluto is the Korean car maker’s most affordable three-box car right now. The Kia Soluto is being made available in the Philippines with a standard petrol engine, with a choice of both manual and automatic gearboxes in two different variants – LX and EX. The color options available in the Kia Soluto are Clear White, Titanium Silver, Blue Stream, Aurora Black Pearl, and Marcato Red.
KIA Soluto Interior
The same simple and minimalist approach of the exterior styling of the Kia Soluto has been followed while designing its interior cabin as well. The overall cabin is finished in an all-black theme, which gets good looking contrasting silver inserts on the dashboard.
The three-spoke multi-functional steering wheel with silver inserts on the lower spoke and a monochrome instrument console might not look too flashy, but they are easy to grab and read. The center console has a wide layout with a large 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system sitting in the middle, being flanked with vertically placed rounded AC vents.
The lower portion of this center console looks quite minimalist with round dials for manual AC and a small array of buttons for power windows. The Kia Soluto gets a very limited list of equipment onboard – just the essentials, which makes it feel very simple in terms of overall feel.
KIA Soluto Exterior
For a compact sedan, the Kia Soluto possesses a commendable road presence, which makes it look a better value when compared to similarly priced hatchbacks. However, on closer introspection, the Kia Soluto looks a bit basic and devoid of many new design elements and features.
Take for instance, the front headlamps, which do not get any projector or LED lighting elements. These wide and slightly sweptback headlamps are flanking the slim tiger-nose grille, which gets thin chrome strips at its upper and lower edges. The large air dam on the central portion of the front bumper gets rounded edges and projector fog lamps placed on its lower edges. At the place of conventional fog lamps, there are faux air vents laid out in a vertical fashion.
The side profile of the Kia Soluto has been designed in a very proportional manner, and in no way it looks compromised despite its compact size. With proper three-box design and long wheelbase, coupled with rounded wheel arches, the Kia Soluto looks quite elegant. However, it could have looked even better, had it got one or more character lines flowing sideways. At the back, the Kia Soluto gets a very basic design comprising of broad and sweptback tail lamps.
KIA Soluto Ride & Handling
The Kia Soluto has been armed with a suspension setup comprising of Macpherson struts with an H-type subframe at the front and V-beam coupled torsion beam axle at the rear. The power is channeled to the front wheels, and the overall handling and steering feedback combination is quite decent for a compact sedan.
KIA Soluto Engine & Fuel Consumption
The Kia Soluto comes with a single-engine option of a 1.4-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol mill under its hood, which is available with both the options of a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic gearbox. The engine has the capacity to breathe out a maximum power output of 95 PS and a peak torque output of 132 Nm.
KIA Soluto Braking & Safety
The list of the safety features on board of the Kia Soluto is pretty basic, with the compact sedan getting things like dual front airbags, ABS, and engine immobilizer. Few more features could have made the package quite appealing and safer too.
KIA Soluto Verdict
The Kia Soluto, at first, looks like a practical sedan for a small family of four or five, with enough space and comfortable ride quality. However, the overall appeal of the Kia Soluto looks quite basic, with just the essential features at a place and no extra features to make it look or feel extra special. A longer list of features itself could have made it feel appealing.
