A fuel-efficient mobility solution: Spec-checking the Kia Soluto

A fuel-efficient mobility solution: Spec-checking the Kia Soluto

Fuel prices may be skyrocketing today, but that would pose just a small problem to cars that are easy on precious resources in the first place — such as the Kia Soluto, for example. That's because Kia's baby sedan can attain a fuel efficiency rating of as much as 16.7kpl.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What powers the Kia Soluto?

    The Soluto is powered by a 1.4-liter engine that produces 95hp and 132Nm of torque. Transmission options include a five-speed manual and four-speed automatic.
  • How much is the Kia Soluto?

    Across its four trim levels, the Soluto retails from P740,000 to P830,000.
  • How does the Soluto achieve such a high economy rating? Well, the Soluto is a featherweight as it tips the scales from 1,036 to 1,066 kilograms across its four variants, several of which carry either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic. 

    Thanks to the measly curb weight, the Soluto's 1.4-liter, four-cylinder engine — which, by the way, generates 95hp and 132Nm of torque and is standard among the four versions — doesn't need to sweat bucketloads to motivate the vehicle. 

    Match all of the above with the Soluto's 43-liter fuel tank, then you have a car that will spend more time on the road than at the pumps.

    And it's on city roads, in particular, that the Soluto will be in its element. The subcompact sedan occupies little of the precious few parking spaces in the metro, as well as of the narrow urban streets.

    To entertain its five passengers especially during gridlock, the Soluto uses an Android Auto- and Apple CarPlay-compatible infotainment system that's controlled via a seven-inch touchscreen or tiller buttons. Adding to the urban-friendly credentials of the Soluto are its reversing sensors and camera that help the driver in parking.

    The Soluto should also hold its own on the long road, too — thanks to some handy features — and that 16.7kpl fuel consumption. The Soluto's 475-liter trunk capacity should swallow loads of backpacks and luggage. Up front, the driver can have a comfortable perch with the center armrest, as well as a leather tiller on higher trim levels.

    Now that we've told you the Soluto's feeble thirst and many attractions, it's now up to the spec sheets of the Soluto's four variants — provided below, as always — to tell you more vital information on this small sedan.
