Kia makes mutant Sportage


KIA is set to unveil an X-Men-inspired Sportage as it continues its partnership with Twentieth Century Fox and the X-Men movie franchise. The second-generation Kia X-Car has been created to promote the new X-Men: Apocalypse film.

As many X-Men fans might have noticed the vehicle has been made to look like the character, Mystique, the shape shifter following the previous Wolverine-inspired Sorento.

Watch the Kia X-Car shape-shift in the below video starring Kia’s brand ambassador, Rafael Nadal - the video documents the car being driven by Nadal in his efforts to take on the X-Men’s arch villain, Apocalypse.

The vehicle will make its public début before the release of the film in May 2016 at the start of the Australian Open 2016 in January. The car will be displayed  at the Melbourne Park throughout the tournament (January 18-31) before making appearances at various international motor shows and fan events in the run up to the film’s premiere.

X-Men edition aside, we will be seeing the all-new Kia Sportage in South Africa towards the end of the second quarter this year.
