The pandemic taught us how useful having a car is. It’s a great way to practice social distancing while getting things done, such as running important errands and doing the groceries. This is true for grocery runs. During the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) when our movement was restricted, many chose to buy their essentials in bulk so they wouldn’t have to go out frequently. A car was helpful, especially when you consider that there was a time when there was no public transportation.
Of course, it’s not easy to buy a car since shelling out a large amount of money in these uncertain times can be risky. If you’re already on the lookout for a vehicle, we have a recommendation for you. The Kia Soluto is great for first-time car buyers since it’s an entry-level model, but it gives you more than you pay for with little luxuries.
The Kia Soluto looks sleek and comes in a variety of colors that will suit any personality. You can choose between the Marcato Red, Clear White, Blue Stream, Titanium Silver, and Aurora Black Pearl. The interiors are designed to be comfortable while looking upscale with leatherette upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering and gear lever. The Soluto is a subcompact sedan but it’s surprisingly spacious and can easily seat five people with room to stretch.
Drivers will love the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth device pairing for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. They can play music, listen to podcasts, refer to maps, or stay in touch with friends and family through calls and text messages while on the road. The infotainment system also controls a 6-speaker audio system so sounds are crisp and evenly-distributed inside the vehicle. An audio remote control is conveniently added to the steering wheel so drivers can effortlessly control the volume. The 2.8-inch LCD cluster makes important information like temperature and fuel easy to see.
The Kia Soluto will also impress seasoned car owners. The vehicle has a Kappa Dual-CVVT Engine, which makes driving efficient, powerful, and exhilarating. The 5-speed manual transmission has gear ratios perfectly matched to the engine so shifts are smooth whether the driving is relaxed or rough. The 4-speed automatic transmission has a comfortable smart selector so gear transitions are precise and fuel-efficient.
The Kia Soluto is also packed with safety features that anticipate possible road hazards. The Rear View Monitor with Parking Guidance allows drivers to see the road when they back up, thanks to the guide lines on the center display. This is useful for safely moving around tight spaces. The Anti-Lock Brake System works with the brakes and tires to maximize stopping control. Of course, standard safety features like dual airbags, child seat anchors, and rear-door child locks are in place. It also has anti-theft technology to keep the car secure.
Each purchase of the Kia Soluto also comes with a great aftersales program. Owners get a five-year warranty and free 24/7 roadside assistance for five years.
At this point, you’re probably wondering how much the Kia Soluto is. You get to experience all these features starting at P665,000!
