You’ll recall we recently reviewed the Hyundai Kona, and rather liked it. Marvel fans might want to listen up now, because the Kona has a new suit. It can be found in a showroom near you from March 1, donning a rather ‘Stark’ new look…
The Kona Iron Man Edition is the result of a collaboration with Marvel. It features both exterior and interior design elements that closely resemble and give a nod to the dynamic Iron Man suit.
The Kona Iron Man Edition is priced at £27,995 on the road. As with all Konas, it features a host of standard equipment.
In addition, it boasts 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.
Stark contrast inside
The Iron Man theme continues inside. The leather seats feature red stitching and piping. The front seats are embossed with the Stark Industries logo and Iron Man image on the backrests.
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.
Kona Iron Man Edition is available in one exterior colour: Matte Grey with Red Armour roof and contrasts. There is also one powertrain available: a 177PS 1.6 T-GDi with 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission and 2WD.
Only 300 coming to the UK
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK said, “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 5-Year, unlimited-mileage warranty, roadside assistance package, 5-year annual health check, and 12-year anti-corrosion warranty.
