2016 Kia Sorento X-Men
Kia’s love affair with super heroes is well-documented.

How can we forget the quintet of cars it rolled out at the 2012 SEMA Auto Show, all inspired by our favorite members of DC’s Justice League. In July 2013, West Coast Customs even dressed up a 2016 Kia Sorento with all members of the Justice League getting prominent face time. Not one to corner itself in the DC Universe, Kia’s latest superhero-inspired creation is another heavily customized Sorento that pays homage to everyone’s favorite mutant super team, the X-Men.
The X-Men-inspired Sorento was created to commemorate the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past on Blue-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. The release itself is irrelevant in our eyes, but the X-Men Sorento certainly isn’t. In addition to serving as a promo vehicle for the release of this summer’s blockbuster movie, the SUV will also do double-duty as a showcase piece at the 2015 Australian Open in Melbourne. Additionally, It will star in a video of sorts with tennis star Rafael Nadal and a handful of mutants to take on the Sentinels in the lead-up to the Australian Open.
Kia’s keeping mum on the inspiration behind the X-Men Sorento. Instead, it’s inviting fans to vote on its Facebook page from a pool of choices that include Storm, Wolverine, Mystique, and Magneto. Unless you have absolutely no clue who the X-Men are, we’ll venture a guess that nobody’s going to get this multiple choice question wrong.
On that note, we would’ve loved to see how Kia would adapt Mystique on the Kia Sorento. Something about her scaly blue skin would probably look cool as a paint job, wouldn’t it?
