X-Men-inspired Kia KX5 – 2016 Auto China Live


Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Created to promote X-Men: Apocalypse’s global release and Kia’s Australian Open 2016 sponsorship.

Kia is displaying a one-off Kia KX5 (fourth generation Kia Sportage) inspired by X-Men at Auto China 2016 (2016 Beijing Motor Show). Created in collaboration with Twentieth Century Fox and the X-Men movie franchise, the special Kia KX5 seen in the images is inspired by X-Men character Mystique.

This is the second generation Kia X-Car. In 2014, Kia introduced the X-Men-inspired Kia Sorento and unveiled it later at the Australian Open 2015.

The X-Men-inspired Kia KX5 was first showcased under the global ‘Sportage’ branding in Melbourne, Australia before the start of the Australian Open 2016 in January. It features custom bodywork with special textured ‘tone-on-tone’ matte and gloss blue paint finish. Other modifications include racing wheels and tyres and red and yellow bodywork highlights. There’s no mention of modifications under the hood.

Needless to say, the X-Men-inspired Kia KX5 (fourth generation Kia Sportage) is just a show car. Kia hasn’t announced any plans to make it available for sale, not even in limited numbers. The show car was created to promote the X-Men: Apocalypse’s global release in cinemas in May 2016 and Kia’s sponsorship of the Australian Open 2016 tennis tournament.
