Crossover themed around Marvel superhero franchise priced from £27,995 with range-topping petrol engine
21 January 2019

Hyundai has confirmed the limited-run Kona Iron Man Edition, which it revealed last year, will go on sale in the UK this March.

The result of a collaboration with Marvel, the comic book superhero-inspired Kona is based on a range-topping variant and priced from £27,995 as a result. A total of 300 examples are coming to the UK.

Upgrades for the Seat Arona rival include matte grey paint with a contrasting red roof (featuring a giant Marvel logo), plus red bumper and door sill inserts. The daytime running lights have also been tweaked to mimic the glowing eyes of Iron Man’s metal mask, according to Hyundai.

The bonnet also features a red-detailed plastic vent, while a full-width Iron Man badge adorns the roof. Themed ‘Stark Industries’ graphics and badging also feature around the Korean crossover, while the 18-inch alloy wheels are finished in two-tone grey and red paint.

Inside, the Iron Man Edition is based on a higher-end trim, but with additional red accents, new themed instrument graphics and a custom head-up display design. The signature of Tony Stark (Iron Man’s 'real' identity) has also been added to the dashboard, while the seat fabric and gear knob feature a custom design. Standard kit includes sat-nav, climate control, keyless entry and automatic LED headlights. 

The special variant is only available with the most powerful engine offered in the Kona. It's a 174bhp 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine, mated exclusively to the firm's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

It's not just those windows  that are looking shallow.

If I want an autonomous car, I'll take a taxi.

You’ve got to be a special kind of Iron Man enthusiast to actually buy this haven’t you? No problem with the Kona per se, but seriously?

Hey for those whose kids are into Marvel comics they will love this or for fans of the BBT. It’s a niche market but I actually like it, it’s a bit of fun, not to be taken too seriously.......

You are the weakest link......

I think it looks quite good, the colour contrast looks well done and not in your face, all a bit of fun, a few years ago my kids would have loved me to have had this, now they're older they'd probably be embarrassed. But remove the roof sticker and it wouldnt be .

Would a 12 year old really be able to afford one?

If he/she could, why would they consider buying one...?...because it is comic book themed?. Seems the "average" 12 year old would have more sense (than you, is without doubt). TwIT, the w is silent, as you should be...and if you don't like my rebukes, you have two choices...vastly improve your post quality or don't respond.

Oh dear.  There you go again.  Is this bitterness and anger over the death of your Mother?  Did she top herself?  Did she have a moment of realisation, an epiphany, that the thing that slipped out of her all those years ago turned out to be such a vacuous, insipid little wank stain that she took her own life?

I knew a car like this would find a buyer. If you don't like mine or other posts don't respond or go to school.
