Marvel at Iron Man spe­cial edi­tion Kona

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS - By MIKE TORPEY Driv­ing Force

THE Hyundai Kona has got a new suit - and can be found in a show­room near you from March 1. In true Tony Stark fash­ion, the Kona Iron Man Edi­tion is the re­sult of a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Marvel and fea­tures both ex­te­rior and in­te­rior de­sign el­e­ments that closely re­sem­ble the dy­namic Iron Man suit.

Priced at £27,995, the new­comer fea­tures a host of stan­dard equip­ment in line with the rest of the Kona range, with the ad­di­tion of be­spoke Iron Man in­spired fea­tures.

They in­clude matte grey and ‘red ar­mour’ ex­te­rior paint­work, be­spoke Iron-grip du­al­tone 18-inch al­loy wheels plus Iron Man em­blems on the front wings and pud­dle lamps.

The bon­net has also been re­designed for the spe­cial Kona, fea­tur­ing a red bon­net bezel with Marvel logo.

And the Iron Man theme con­tin­ues on the in­side where the leather seats come with red stitch­ing and pip­ing while 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 in­stru­ment clus­ter both dis­play the Iron Man eyes dur­ing sys­tem check. In fact 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.

Mean­while the Iron Man theme is rounded off by a dash­board sig­na­ture from Tony Stark. As well as be­spoke equip­ment, the car also shares equip­ment from within the Kona range, in­clud­ing au­to­matic LED head and tail lights, key­less en­try with en­gine start/ stop but­ton, 8-inch touch­screen sat nav with An­droid Auto and Ap­ple Car Play, air con with cli­mate con­trol and driver’s side head up dis­play.

Safety equip­ment in­cludes au­ton­o­mous emer­gency brak­ing, blind spot de­tec­tion, down­hill brake con­trol, driver at­ten­tion alert, lane keep as­sist and rear cross traf­fic alert fit­ted as stan­dard.

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 petrol unit, with 7-speed dual clutch trans­mis­sion and 2WD.

Tony Stark would be im­pressed with Hyundai’s Kona Iron Man edi­tion.
