Man, Kia has taken things a little too literally here and slapped on a few claws to its Sorento X-Men edition. Obviously an one-off, this Wolverine on wheels is the result of Kia Motors teaming up with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to promote the upcoming Blu-Ray and DVD release of promote X-Men: Days of Future Past. And those steel claws look like they mean business!
It will also be used as a marketing piece at next year’s Australian Open where Kia Motors happens to be one of the main sponsors. The car will make its public debut on January 19 at Melbourne Park and will be showcased there until February 1 but Kia plans on bringing it to major international auto shows later in 2015.
The Kia Sorento in its normal guise, sans the claws, is available with three engine choices: a 185 bhp 2.4-liter GDI, 240 bhp 2.0-liter GDI turbo and a 290 bhp 3.3-liter V6, with all of them coupled to a six-speed automatic gearbox and optional all-wheel drive.
