The Optima and Sorrento, built at the West Point Kia Motors plant, were responsible for 261,540 (45%) of KMA's total auto sales in 2014.
With the big game just days away, the Georgia-built Sorrento is about to get a big boost from James Bond in a 60-second Super Bowl XLIX advertisement.
Pierce Brosnan, who portrayed Agent 007 in four James Bond films, stars in a new commercial promoting the all-new 2016 Kia Sorento CUV. The ad, which can be seen below, will air during the third quarter of Super Bowl XLIX.

In the spot, Brosnan listens to a Hollywood agent pitching a starring role in an upcoming project. As the agent describes various scenes, Brosnan confidently interjects one movie cliché after another, wrongly assuming he and the Sorento will encounter danger at every turn.
