I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking that if you could buy a Hyundai Kona with links to the Marvel Universe then it would surely be a Kona Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. Well hold on to you metallic suit and hat as Hyundai have only gone and launched the Kona Iron Man Edition which can be found in a showroom near you from March 1.
This (unlikely?) Edition, the result of a collaboration with Marvel and featuring, according to Hyundai, both exterior and interior design elements that closely resemble and give a nod to the dynamic Iron Man suit.
So the important news. At £27,995 on the road, the Kona Iron Man Edition features the usual plethora of standard equipment in line with the rest of the Kona range, with the addition of bespoke Iron Man inspired features such as matte grey and “red armour” exterior paintwork, bespoke Iron-grip dual-tone 18” alloy wheels and Iron Man emblems on the front wings and puddle lamps. The bonnet has been redesigned for the Kona Iron Man Edition, featuring a red bonnet bezel with Marvel logo, of course.
Hyundai have taken the time to explain to MotorMartin that the Iron Man theme continues on the inside as the leather seats feature red stitching and piping and the heated and ventilated front seats are embossed with the STARK Industries logo and Iron Man image on the backrests. Upon start up, the standard KRELL Premium audio system and supervision instrument cluster both display the Iron Man eyes during system check. The instrument cluster and tachometer also feature the STARK Industries Arc Reactor as the background graphics, as does the leather wrapped and red stitched gear lever. The Iron Man theme is rounded off by a dashboard signature from Tony Stark. Blimey.
Kona Iron Man Edition is available in one exterior colour, Matte Grey with Red Armour roof and contrasts, with one powertrain available, a 177PS 1.6 T-GDi, with 7 speed Dual Clutch Transmission and 2WD.
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK shared with MotorMartin recently that, “The KONA range has always had a strong identity with its expressive styling and choice of vibrant exterior colours. Kona Iron Man Edition takes this further, standing out even more with its Iron Man inspired looks and equipment. With only 300 cars coming to the UK, the Kona Iron Man Edition will be a unique ownership experience, combining the Kona’s style, technology and performance with a slice of superhero fun!”
All KONA models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.
