New Hyundai Kona Iron Man Edition swoops in

Just 300 examples of the superhero-inspired Kona will be available

This is the Hyundai Kona Iron Man Edition, a limited-run collaboration with comic book creators Marvel. Costing £27,995, the uniquely styled Kona will be restricted to 300 fans in the UK, who'll enjoy a host of styling upgrades.

Giving "a nod to the dynamic Iron Man suit", the exterior features a matte grey and "red armour" paintwork, with unique 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels. Other tributes include Iron Man emblems for the front wings and puddle lamps, along with a new bonnet with a red Marvel logo and bonnet scoop. Photos also show an Iron Man logo emblazoned on the roof, along with 'Stark Industries' graphics above its door sills.

The transformation continues inside, where the Kona is decked out with leather seats featuring red stitching and piping, heating and ventilation. They're also embossed with logos, and when you start the ignition, the instrument cluster displays Iron Man eyes as the car performs its system check. The dashboard even features a Tony Stark signature.

Equipment is generous, with automatic LED headlights, keyless entry, climate control and a head up display fitted as standard. There's also an eight-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a premium Krell sound system. Safety kit is comprehensive too, with the latest features like autonomous emergency braking and lane keep assist.

Every Iron Man Edition looks identical and shares the same 1.6 T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine with 175bhp, paired with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox and front-wheel drive. This gets the car from 0-62mph in a sprightly 7.7 seconds, with a fuel economy figure of 38.7mpg (WLTP) and CO2 emissions of 142g/km.

Available in showrooms from 1 March, it comes with a five-year/unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance, five-year annual health check and a 12-year corrosion warranty.
