Metro Pharma PH chooses the versatile Kia Soluto sub-compact sedan as its on-the-field partner

Six units of the Kia Soluto were turned over to one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in the country.

Having a reliable, stylish, and efficient vehicle is a must when part of a very demanding and highly competitive pharmaceutical industry. The right sedan for the job is essential for medical representatives who need to cover a large area and tackle to the reality of living and working in and out of Metro Manila. This is why Metro Pharma Philippines, Inc. (MPPI) chose the Kia Soluto LX AT for its hardworking and dedicated field representatives.

MPPI is a Philippine-based search and development pharmaceutical company engaged in the ethical marketing of top-quality research-based pharmaceutical products that provide innovative solutions to the current healthcare needs of Filipinos. “After extensive research, we found that the Soluto ticks all of the right boxes and exceeds our requirements,” says Rush Kimhoko, President and CEO of MPPI. “The coverage of our medical representatives brings them to the busiest and most congested areas in the city, so we need a vehicle that is proven to be comfortable, reliable, easy to park and maneuver, and efficient. And because it represents our company, it must also be stylish.”

The Soluto offers an array of value-for-money features, highlighted by the 1.4-liter Dual-CVVT gasoline engine that produces 95 PS of power and 132 Nm of torque, combined with a spacious interior as well as standard 7-inch Touchscreen Audio with Android Auto & Apple Carplay, 6-speaker system, rearview camera, and steering wheel controls.

“It is essential that the vehicle we offer to our valued customers fits this very unique and demanding industry,” says Patty Echivarre, Functional Director for Sales of Iconic Dealership Inc. “Every kilometer that is traveled is considered, so efficiency is key. Of course, the sedan must also have the convenience and connectivity features to make the hours spent on the road by representatives as comfortable as possible.”

“The Soluto is ideal for people who are on the move constantly,” says Brian Buendia, Chief Operating Officer of Kia Philippines. “And to avoid any potential downtime, there is an entire Kia dealership network that is ready with parts and service for any unforeseen circumstances.” The Soluto comes with comprehensive warranty coverage. Aside from the five years or 160,000-km general warranty, whichever comes first, Kia Philippines also offers 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance. The periodic maintenance service (PMS) interval schedule for these models is every six months, or every 5,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
