KIA SOLUTO VS HYUNDAI REINA
However, another Korean brand distributor, Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), pre-empted Kia by publishing on the same day a two-page full color center spread in PDI and other newspapers introducing the China-sourced Hyundai Reina subcompact sedan with SRP starting at P638,000.
The Soluto and the Reina share the same 1.4-liter, 95 PS gasoline engine which can be explained by the fact that Hyundai Motor Co. has a 33.88 percent stake in Kia Motors in Korea. But on a global scale, Kia and Hyundai operate independently with separate design, production, marketing and branding activities. Both brands have production facilities in China.
