Simple small sedans: Kia Soluto vs. Hyundai Reina

Simple small sedans: Kia Soluto vs. Hyundai Reina

During this time when many cars pack automated-this and touch-controlled-that, the simple Kia Soluto and Hyundai Reina mini subcompacts become a breath of fresh air. 

Kia's and Hyundai's small sedans are made from the same building blocks, and are touted to be no-frills and basic modes of transport, kind of cars that have seemingly been overlooked as the spotlight focuses on cars, even mini subcompacts, that carry gadgets galore. 

Soluto-

Hyundai Reina

However, that's not to say that basic means bare. The Soluto and Reina are powered by the same 1.4-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine with 94hp and 132Nm of torque. 

Inside, the Soluto carries an Android Auto and Apple CarPlay-compatible infotainment that's controlled via a seven-inch touchscreen. The Soluto is also fitted with rear parking sensors. The Reina is equipped with a 1DIN radio with USB connectivity, or can be optioned with an AVN (audio, visual, navigation) system. Driving the Reina becomes easier with a four-speed automatic transmission. 

Kia-Soluto

Hyundai-ReinaAttractive as these features may sound, most of them are available in the top-trim Soluto and Reina. For the most minimalist motoring experience, the cars' base trims are the way to go. Check the sedans' spec sheets below and see which basic car catches your fancy.
