IT’S no secret that many medical professionals are in search of vehicles that will be their partner as they go about helping to keep people healthy and saving lives. For the likes of nurses, medical technicians, resident doctors and other health workers, Kia Philippines serves up the Soluto sub-compact sedan.
While the Soluto may be compact, it doesn’t scrimp on features and is designed to make life a bit less stressful for those who are constantly on the go. The 1.4-liter Kappa inline-4 engine with Dual CVVT (Continuous Variable Valve Timing) puts out 95PS at 6,000rpm and 132Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Mated to a 4-speed AT, it provides more than adequate power and fuel efficiency for both city and highway drives—both of which medical professionals regularly traverse.
Those long or short jaunts will be made more relaxing with its standard 6-speaker audio system controlled by a 7-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth device pairing, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This allows occupants to stay connected even on the move. Again, this is perfect for medical professionals who constantly need to keep in touch with their patients and places of assignment—albeit in a safe manner.
Apart from being free from distracted driving, driver and passengers are given peace of mind thanks to safety features like rear parking sensors (for the EX) and a standard reverse camera—amenities that go a long way in easing stress.
Plus, a clean and stylish design makes it an ideal ride that represents the dynamism of the person and health institution they’re connected with. Not too flashy yet still has a feel of sensible styling.
The Kia brand has received several 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 and with the Ayala-owned AC Motors backing it up locally, the Kia Soluto with its 5-year/100,000km warranty and 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance is the perfect vehicle for medical professionals and individuals looking for a stylish and feature-packed ride that won’t break the bank.
The Kia Soluto is available in four variants: 1.4 LX MT: P665K; LX AT: P710K; EX MT: P710K; EX AT: P755K
