22
00:00:44,480 –> 00:00:48,160
and i have my friend zakrin in the back

23
00:00:48,239 –> 00:00:52,000
yeah so you may remember him from the

24
00:00:50,239 –> 00:00:54,079
vessel review and the integra

25
00:00:52,000 –> 00:00:56,480
review you’ll see probably see more of

26
00:00:54,079 –> 00:00:59,359
him in upcoming reviews as well

27
00:00:56,480 –> 00:01:01,440
okay so uh some quick specs for this kia

28
00:00:59,359 –> 00:01:02,160
celtos this comes with a 1.4 liter

29
00:01:01,440 –> 00:01:05,760
turbocharged

30
00:01:02,160 –> 00:01:06,960
engine um 138 horsepower 242 newton

31
00:01:05,760 –> 00:01:09,040
meters of torque

32
00:01:06,960 –> 00:01:10,640
this car comes with a 7 speed dct

33
00:01:09,040 –> 00:01:11,200
transmission that powers the front

34
00:01:10,640 –> 00:01:12,799
wheels

35
00:01:11,200 –> 00:01:14,560
so this car is a front wheel drive and

36
00:01:12,799 –> 00:01:15,600
this car being the gt line there are

37
00:01:14,560 –> 00:01:16,640
three variants that you can get in

38
00:01:15,600 –> 00:01:19,119
singapore the ex

39
00:01:16,640 –> 00:01:20,080
sx and the gt line this gt line is the

40
00:01:19,119 –> 00:01:21,280
highest

41
00:01:20,080 –> 00:01:23,040
level variant that you can get in

42
00:01:21,280 –> 00:01:24,159
singapore so it comes with all the bells

43
00:01:23,040 –> 00:01:26,400
and whistles

44
00:01:24,159 –> 00:01:28,400
that you don’t get in the ex and the sx

45
00:01:26,400 –> 00:01:29,920
but of course it costs the most so some

46
00:01:28,400 –> 00:01:30,960
features that you can find in the gt

47
00:01:29,920 –> 00:01:31,840
line are things like your heads-up

48
00:01:30,960 –> 00:01:34,320
display this

49
00:01:31,840 –> 00:01:36,159
ventilated seats which uh it’s really

50
00:01:34,320 –> 00:01:39,360
turned on so it’s actually keeping us

51
00:01:36,159 –> 00:01:40,640
very very cool yeah the upgraded uh i

52
00:01:39,360 –> 00:01:42,079
would say upgraded is a bigger

53
00:01:40,640 –> 00:01:44,159
infotainment screen

54
00:01:42,079 –> 00:01:46,079
and oh yeah these are flat bottom

55
00:01:44,159 –> 00:01:47,119
steering as well with the gt line uh

56
00:01:46,079 –> 00:01:49,439
batch at the bottom

57
00:01:47,119 –> 00:01:50,640
yeah so these are some of the nicer

58
00:01:49,439 –> 00:01:52,320
features that you

59
00:01:50,640 –> 00:01:54,399
can get when you pay more for the gt

60
00:01:52,320 –> 00:01:54,960
line as compared to the ex or the sx

61
00:01:54,399 –> 00:01:58,000
variant

62
00:01:54,960 –> 00:01:59,680
why did you choose this car

63
00:01:58,000 –> 00:02:02,000
my wife and i went to iceland for

64
00:01:59,680 –> 00:02:05,040
honeymoon okay so we

65
00:02:02,000 –> 00:02:07,759
rented a car and they gave us a tucson

66
00:02:05,040 –> 00:02:08,879
we find it very comfortable spacious

67
00:02:07,759 –> 00:02:11,840
good for family

68
00:02:08,879 –> 00:02:12,239
okay so so after you came back singapore

69
00:02:11,840 –> 00:02:15,599
we

70
00:02:12,239 –> 00:02:16,239
look at um suv because previously we

71
00:02:15,599 –> 00:02:19,440
were

72
00:02:16,239 –> 00:02:22,239
driving kia forte k3 okay

73
00:02:19,440 –> 00:02:23,760
yeah so we’re just looking around but

74
00:02:22,239 –> 00:02:26,640
tucson is a bit

75
00:02:23,760 –> 00:02:27,120
too big for my wife okay seven seats so

76
00:02:26,640 –> 00:02:31,280
so

77
00:02:27,120 –> 00:02:33,360
um came out and it’s compact so it’s

78
00:02:31,280 –> 00:02:35,519
like oh let’s go down and take a look so

79
00:02:33,360 –> 00:02:36,640
yeah we test jovi and everything is this

80
00:02:35,519 –> 00:02:38,560
is good so

81
00:02:36,640 –> 00:02:41,760
yeah you didn’t consider any other cars

82
00:02:38,560 –> 00:02:44,160
when you were looking at this car

83
00:02:41,760 –> 00:02:45,200
not really we are really quite

84
00:02:44,160 –> 00:02:47,280
comfortable with kia

85
00:02:45,200 –> 00:02:48,480
okay okay yeah it didn’t didn’t give us

86
00:02:47,280 –> 00:02:51,599
any problems

87
00:02:48,480 –> 00:02:51,599
you’re okay three

88
00:02:56,570 –> 00:02:59,660
[Music]

89
00:03:01,360 –> 00:03:05,519
okay so around late july early august

90
00:03:03,519 –> 00:03:08,640
2020 until now which is

91
00:03:05,519 –> 00:03:10,400
uh march uh early march 20 21

92
00:03:08,640 –> 00:03:11,920
so how has your ownership experience

93
00:03:10,400 –> 00:03:14,000
been so far good

94
00:03:11,920 –> 00:03:15,360
very good no problems whatsoever okay

95
00:03:14,000 –> 00:03:16,640
what’s your fuel consumption like for

96
00:03:15,360 –> 00:03:21,200
this car

97
00:03:16,640 –> 00:03:24,319
no idea okay so they’re accumulating

98
00:03:21,200 –> 00:03:27,120
13 or 14 yeah yeah so i’m looking at the

99
00:03:24,319 –> 00:03:28,319
accumulated uh info for the fuel

100
00:03:27,120 –> 00:03:31,360
consumption

101
00:03:28,319 –> 00:03:34,080
so over 386

102
00:03:31,360 –> 00:03:36,159
kilometers uh the average fuel

103
00:03:34,080 –> 00:03:38,879
consumption is about 13.3

104
00:03:36,159 –> 00:03:39,599
kilometers per liter which i think is

105
00:03:38,879 –> 00:03:41,280
okay

106
00:03:39,599 –> 00:03:42,959
quite good actually yeah actually it’s

107
00:03:41,280 –> 00:03:46,159
quite close to the factory

108
00:03:42,959 –> 00:03:48,720
uh fuel consumption of about 15

109
00:03:46,159 –> 00:03:49,360
blocks okay kilometers per liter yeah

110
00:03:48,720 –> 00:03:52,000
yeah

111
00:03:49,360 –> 00:03:53,519
so uh next question what do you like

112
00:03:52,000 –> 00:03:57,280

113
00:03:53,519 –> 00:04:00,799

00:04:00,799 –> 00:04:05,599
okay yeah the lake space is also how is

116
00:04:04,640 –> 00:04:07,920
it in the back comfortable

117
00:04:05,599 –> 00:04:08,959
very very comfortable i’ve got tons of

118
00:04:07,920 –> 00:04:12,480
room in

119
00:04:08,959 –> 00:04:15,760
the back i don’t i don’t have to have my

120
00:04:12,480 –> 00:04:17,519
feet up just to sit down it’s like

121
00:04:15,760 –> 00:04:19,519
got a lot of room man okay okay head

122
00:04:17,519 –> 00:04:21,759
room also right oh yeah definitely

123
00:04:19,519 –> 00:04:22,560
wrong okay okay so there’s the sunshine

124
00:04:21,759 –> 00:04:24,880
yeah there’s also

125
00:04:22,560 –> 00:04:27,120
this is gt line so it comes with the

126
00:04:24,880 –> 00:04:29,280
privacy sunshade in the rear

127
00:04:27,120 –> 00:04:31,680
okay next what do you dislike about your

128
00:04:29,280 –> 00:04:34,140
kia celtics

129
00:04:31,680 –> 00:04:35,680
maybe just not used to it to the um

130
00:04:34,140 –> 00:04:38,880
[Music]

131
00:04:35,680 –> 00:04:42,800
jerking okay i think due to the dct

132
00:04:38,880 –> 00:04:45,360
okay so this uh jerking motion is like

133
00:04:42,800 –> 00:04:48,479
what low speed is it

134
00:04:45,360 –> 00:04:52,000
um going up slope going up

135
00:04:48,479 –> 00:04:55,440
and sometimes moving off um

136
00:04:52,000 –> 00:04:58,880
from the traffic light okay yeah maybe

137
00:04:55,440 –> 00:05:00,080
it’s the dct but let me just try to see

138
00:04:58,880 –> 00:05:01,520
because just now when i was driving at

139
00:05:00,080 –> 00:05:05,680
low speeds around the car park

140
00:05:01,520 –> 00:05:09,840
you can already feel a bit but uh

141
00:05:05,680 –> 00:05:11,440
not too bad yeah see like just now this

142
00:05:09,840 –> 00:05:14,320
moving off i didn’t feel it

143
00:05:11,440 –> 00:05:14,320
so it’s not all the time

144
00:05:14,560 –> 00:05:18,320
did you bring this up to here or second

145
00:05:17,840 –> 00:05:24,160
carriage

146
00:05:18,320 –> 00:05:25,919
no no you didn’t talk to them okay okay

147
00:05:24,160 –> 00:05:28,000
than that everything’s good the car

148
00:05:25,919 –> 00:05:31,039
feels very taller

149
00:05:28,000 –> 00:05:32,800
for this is like not a full-on suv

150
00:05:31,039 –> 00:05:35,280
this is like a container yeah compact

151
00:05:32,800 –> 00:05:37,199
suv but it feels very tall like taller

152
00:05:35,280 –> 00:05:40,240
than the average

153
00:05:37,199 –> 00:05:40,880
compact suv yeah it’s actually um the

154
00:05:40,240 –> 00:05:43,360
tallest

155
00:05:40,880 –> 00:05:43,919
in its class okay for the cell towers

156
00:05:43,360 –> 00:05:46,960
yeah

157
00:05:43,919 –> 00:05:48,240
okay and the looks also i think quite as

158
00:05:46,960 –> 00:05:50,320
this very imposing look

159
00:05:48,240 –> 00:05:51,919
i think because the grill is quite big

160
00:05:50,320 –> 00:05:53,199
it reminds me a bit of the optimus prime

161
00:05:51,919 –> 00:05:55,759
like a transformer

162
00:05:53,199 –> 00:05:59,120
it looks like a range rover ah yeah your

163
00:05:55,759 –> 00:05:59,120
friend actually looks a bit like a range

164
00:05:59,440 –> 00:06:04,840
yeah correct then let’s say somebody is

165
00:06:02,560 –> 00:06:07,280
looking to buy a kia celtos do you have

166
00:06:04,840 –> 00:06:10,880
any uh

167
00:06:07,280 –> 00:06:13,680
advice for us just by okay

168
00:06:10,880 –> 00:06:15,280
which which which variant of the uh of

169
00:06:13,680 –> 00:06:20,000
the celtos should they get

170
00:06:15,280 –> 00:06:22,240
the ex sx or gt xx is fine

171
00:06:20,000 –> 00:06:24,160
sx is fine yeah because you get most of

172
00:06:22,240 –> 00:06:26,400
the features ready right sx

173
00:06:24,160 –> 00:06:27,840
yeah but the sx uh as of time of filming

174
00:06:26,400 –> 00:06:31,039
right the sx is about

175
00:06:27,840 –> 00:06:34,160
11k more than the ex

176
00:06:31,039 –> 00:06:36,160
uh yeah which i think is okay la i’ve

177
00:06:34,160 –> 00:06:36,720
been quite worth it because you are in a

178
00:06:36,160 –> 00:06:38,880
way

179
00:06:36,720 –> 00:06:41,759
future proofing your car but of course

180
00:06:38,880 –> 00:06:44,720
if money no issue gt line is

181
00:06:41,759 –> 00:06:46,840
gt is the best one yeah okay so uh just

182
00:06:44,720 –> 00:06:49,360
some impressions of driving this car

183
00:06:46,840 –> 00:06:51,840
around uh i have to say yeah it’s

184
00:06:49,360 –> 00:06:53,120
the sitting position is quite tall um

185
00:06:51,840 –> 00:06:57,120
but the car is very comfortable

186
00:06:53,120 –> 00:06:59,759
it soaks up bumps really well yeah yeah

187
00:06:57,120 –> 00:07:01,120
i can feel that yeah so the suspension

188
00:06:59,759 –> 00:07:04,319
is very

189
00:07:01,120 –> 00:07:07,120
compliant i would say um the engine even

190
00:07:04,319 –> 00:07:08,960
though it’s a turbocharged engine right

191
00:07:07,120 –> 00:07:10,479
okay yeah now then i feel the search you

192
00:07:08,960 –> 00:07:12,000
have to actually put your foot all the

193
00:07:10,479 –> 00:07:12,800
way down for you to feel that turbo

194
00:07:12,000 –> 00:07:15,199
search

195
00:07:12,800 –> 00:07:16,319
so if you’re not a heavy footer kind of

196
00:07:15,199 –> 00:07:19,440
driver right you are

197
00:07:16,319 –> 00:07:20,240
very gentle you probably won’t feel it

198
00:07:19,440 –> 00:07:23,520
that much

199
00:07:20,240 –> 00:07:26,400
but the car does sometimes

200
00:07:23,520 –> 00:07:27,440
yeah there’s this jerking motion which

201
00:07:26,400 –> 00:07:31,280
you sort of talked about

202
00:07:27,440 –> 00:07:33,360
probably due to the dct i’m not sure but

203
00:07:31,280 –> 00:07:35,120
there are dcts that are driven which

204
00:07:33,360 –> 00:07:36,479
don’t have this joking motion it feels

205
00:07:35,120 –> 00:07:38,319
very smooth

206
00:07:36,479 –> 00:07:40,000
so yeah i’m really not too sure about

207
00:07:38,319 –> 00:07:40,479
that but there’s three driving modes

208
00:07:40,000 –> 00:07:42,639
like

209
00:07:40,479 –> 00:07:44,090
normal eco and sport so right now i’m in

210
00:07:42,639 –> 00:07:46,879
sports mode

211
00:07:44,090 –> 00:07:50,720
[Music]

212
00:07:46,879 –> 00:07:52,400
yeah the pool is quite

213
00:07:50,720 –> 00:07:54,319
how would you describe the pool i would

214
00:07:52,400 –> 00:07:56,800
say super strong

215
00:07:54,319 –> 00:07:59,280
i think suddenly you turn this inside oh

216
00:07:56,800 –> 00:07:59,280
okay

217
00:08:01,520 –> 00:08:08,879
okay yeah you can

218
00:08:04,560 –> 00:08:10,479
feel the car just okay okay okay

219
00:08:08,879 –> 00:08:12,000
well you’re right i said the steering

220
00:08:10,479 –> 00:08:14,479
wheel feels really premium

221
00:08:12,000 –> 00:08:15,280
yeah it’s so smooth in the hand man it’s

222
00:08:14,479 –> 00:08:17,759
close to

223
00:08:15,280 –> 00:08:19,120
like the audi kind of material yeah yeah

224
00:08:17,759 –> 00:08:21,840
that’s right

225
00:08:19,120 –> 00:08:22,800
and the fact that it’s it’s a quite

226
00:08:21,840 –> 00:08:27,840
small and

227
00:08:22,800 –> 00:08:27,840
feels very very sporty

228
00:08:28,000 –> 00:08:33,200
are we in eco mode normal

229
00:08:31,120 –> 00:08:34,640
yeah but it’s that’s not bad i like the

230
00:08:33,200 –> 00:08:37,839
throttle response man

231
00:08:34,640 –> 00:08:39,839
the pickup is quite good yeah

232
00:08:37,839 –> 00:08:43,200
i think you can easily overtake cars on

233
00:08:39,839 –> 00:08:43,200
the expressway in this uh yeah

234
00:08:43,360 –> 00:08:46,720
okay i think the only thing that i

235
00:08:45,360 –> 00:08:49,600
noticed at this point

236
00:08:46,720 –> 00:08:50,800
is i have to get used to the brakes

237
00:08:49,600 –> 00:08:55,519
biting point

238
00:08:50,800 –> 00:08:58,800
it seems quite quite low as compared to

239
00:08:55,519 –> 00:08:59,760
compared to my car but other than that

240
00:08:58,800 –> 00:09:03,040
the

241
00:08:59,760 –> 00:09:06,720
ride is smooth suspension is

242
00:09:03,040 –> 00:09:07,920
feels really nice like so far

243
00:09:06,720 –> 00:09:10,240
how do you how do you find ticking

244
00:09:07,920 –> 00:09:13,279
corners in this car okay

245
00:09:10,240 –> 00:09:15,360
good smooth huh yes okay okay

246
00:09:13,279 –> 00:09:16,560
and when when you overtake other cars

247
00:09:15,360 –> 00:09:20,560
it’s like it’s

248
00:09:16,560 –> 00:09:20,560
very maneuverable yeah easy

249
00:09:20,839 –> 00:09:25,600
yeah because uh for for

250
00:09:23,760 –> 00:09:27,279
i think for its class the celtos is

251
00:09:25,600 –> 00:09:31,200
considered one of the bigger

252
00:09:27,279 –> 00:09:33,360
suvs but um

253
00:09:31,200 –> 00:09:36,000
yeah you you do feel that it’s bit it’s

254
00:09:33,360 –> 00:09:39,440
a bit on the tall side

255
00:09:36,000 –> 00:09:42,320
but in terms of handling i think it’s

256
00:09:39,440 –> 00:09:43,440
it’s quite good like quiet also oh yeah

257
00:09:42,320 –> 00:09:47,040
yeah that’s right

258
00:09:43,440 –> 00:09:48,800
very quiet i like the pickup

259
00:09:47,040 –> 00:09:52,080
yeah yeah i like the throttle response

260
00:09:48,800 –> 00:09:52,080
on this car it’s very good

261
00:09:52,399 –> 00:09:55,760
it’s more engine also your rotate is

262
00:09:53,760 –> 00:09:58,640
quite cheap yeah that’s like 100

263
00:09:55,760 –> 00:09:58,640
yeah oh my god

264
00:09:59,760 –> 00:10:04,560
yeah okay yeah there’s a apple carplay

265
00:10:02,720 –> 00:10:08,000
and android autos right

266
00:10:04,560 –> 00:10:11,120
yeah yeah it does uh i believe all the

267
00:10:08,000 –> 00:10:14,640
assets and the gt lines will have that

268
00:10:11,120 –> 00:10:17,600
okay yeah yeah that’s i i felt that

269
00:10:14,640 –> 00:10:18,079
okay before every time but just once in

270
00:10:17,600 –> 00:10:19,360
a while

271
00:10:18,079 –> 00:10:21,120
i think you know what happens it’s

272
00:10:19,360 –> 00:10:22,880
because you know the dct is like it

273
00:10:21,120 –> 00:10:25,440
preps the next gear

274
00:10:22,880 –> 00:10:26,000
in advance so sometimes when you come to

275
00:10:25,440 –> 00:10:29,279
uh

276
00:10:26,000 –> 00:10:30,880
like let’s say it’s in third gear you uh

277
00:10:29,279 –> 00:10:32,640
you start slowing down it’s not slowing

278
00:10:30,880 –> 00:10:34,320
down you prep second gear but then you

279
00:10:32,640 –> 00:10:37,360
accelerate immediately

280
00:10:34,320 –> 00:10:38,000
so it takes a while for it to register

281
00:10:37,360 –> 00:10:40,160
to think

282
00:10:38,000 –> 00:10:41,360
and then to uh prepare fourth gear

283
00:10:40,160 –> 00:10:43,920
instead of second

284
00:10:41,360 –> 00:10:45,360
yeah something i did so yeah maybe maybe

285
00:10:43,920 –> 00:10:46,880
that’s what’s going on

286
00:10:45,360 –> 00:10:48,399
i love the fittings on this car

287
00:10:46,880 –> 00:10:51,120
