Hyundai to Release Kona Iron Man Edition


 Marvel-lous Hyundai Kona Iron Man Edition styled to look like Iron Man’s suit

Iron Man and Hyundai fans can marvel (get it?) that Hyundai is releasing a Kona Iron Man Edition. As the name suggests, the car is inspired by the Iron Man movie and features number of bespoke Tony Stark-inspired options throughout.

The most notable of all features is the matte grey paint with “Iron Man red” highlights, special Iron-grip dual-tone 18” alloy wheels, a redesigned bonnet with a red bonnet bezel and Iron Man logo, and perhaps the coolest feature of them all, the Iron Man logo projecting through the puddle lamps at night. There’s also Iron Man badging on the front guards.

They haven’t skimped with the Iron Man inspired stuff on the inside, either. There are STARK and Iron Man logos stitched onto the heated and cooled leather seats that are also finished in Iron Man red piping.

The 8” multimedia touch screen and instrument cluster feature an Iron Man themed graphical interface, while a character themed welcome animation on greets passengers from both the cluster and Head-Up Display (HUD).

STARK Industries Arc Reactor serve as the background graphics for the speedo and tacho gauges. The leather wrapped steering wheel and gearshift lever also gain relevant touches. Tony Stark’s signature is scrawled across the dashboard.

Kona Iron Man Edition is available in one highly specified trim level, and all models are powered by a 130kW 1.6T-GDi with 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and AWD.

Additional standard features will include LED headlights, LED taillights, push button start, satellite navigation, dual-zone climate and Apple CarPlay.

Standard safety kit incorporates Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), High Beam Assist (HBA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) all fitted as standard.

If you want a Kona Iron Man Edition, you’ll have to be quick, as only 400 Kona Iron Man Edition models will be brought to Australia from March, with a recommended retail price of $39,990.
