We're fans of the superhero genre not necessarily for the bleak storyline, but for the action, explosions and, you’ve guessed it, the cars used by Marvel Comics' and DC Comics’ most loved superhero figures.
This time around we won’t talk about Batman’s Tumbler or the Green Hornet’s Black Beauty. In fact, today we’ll talk you through... a 2016 Kia Sorento with a beastly persona. On any given day, a wolverine is a stocky carnivorous animal, but in the Marvel universe, Wolverine isn’t that kind of animal.

He’s furry and has some 1970s sideburns, but the alter ego of James Howlett a.k.a. Logan is one of the central characters of the extremely popular X-Men saga. You know, that bloke who’s portrayed by Hugh Jackman in the latest X-Men movies, that guy with the superhuman muscles, regenerative healing factor and the infamous Adamantium retractable claws.

Now try to imagine Wolverine behind the wheel of the so-called Kia X-Car

Yeah, something is not quite right here, but still, you can’t deny this South Korean family-oriented SUV has an edge to it (no pun intended). Produced by Kia Motors in collaboration with Twentieth Century Fox, the Kia X-Car will be displayed at Melbourne Park in Australia throughout the Grand Slam tournament at the Australian Open, which takes place from January 19th to February 1st, 2015.

If you’re more interested in Kia’s all-new Sorento, then here’s a reminder of what it packs: seating for seven, a flowing dash, 605 liters of boot storage with the third-row seats flat into the floor, multiple four-pot turbo diesels and gasoline-fed mills, as well as a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 3.3-liter V6 powerplant for the North American market.
