Superhero takes to Bristol’s streets in the new Hyundai Kona Iron Man
January 30, 2019  Ted Welford


Residents of Bristol had quite a shock last weekend as Iron Man was spotted
parading around the city in a new special edition Hyundai.

The Marvel character was seen taking a dog for a walk, before heading
through a KFC drive-thru and going to a local tip. Just your average
Saturday, right?

Iron Man also headed to Clifton Village—one of Bristol’s upmarket areas—for
his weekly shop and a visit to the opticians.

Unsurprisingly, Iron Man’s presence was a publicity stunt by Hyundai, who
were showing off their new Kona Iron Man Edition.

Inspired by the Marvel superhero film franchise, Hyundai has reworked its
popular small crossover to include as many Iron Man references as possible.

This means it comes with matte grey paint with contrasting red accents,
along with two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels which feature Iron Man logos on the
wheel caps.

Other differences over the standard Kona include leather seats with red
stitching, which are also embossed with an Iron Man image. And just in case
you forget that you’re driving a superhero-inspired car, Hyundai has given
the model puddle lights which project an Iron Man logo onto the floor when
the door is opened.

Ashley Andrew, managing director at Hyundai Motor UK, said: “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.”
