Come on, who doesn’t love Iron Man? Or at least, know or heard of Iron Man? This infamous Marvel superhero is so popular and well-loved due to his money, power, wit and charm. Even I, have become a victim of his dashing good looks and intelligence that I even got an Iron Man tattoo on my left arm. Iron Man aka Tony Stark definitely exudes an undeniable appeal that lives up to his description of himself: genius, billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist. Oh, my, I’m in love.
Some might love him, some might hate him for his overwhelming guts, but whichever side you're on, he's still Iron Man
Honestly, being a big fan of Iron Man myself, I uttered the same words when I first saw the photos of Hyundai’s collaboration with Marvel – the Hyundai Kona Iron Man Edition 2019, well, that will be released in the early part of 2019.

I got excited and at the same time, intrigued, that I wish I could run my fingers through its sleek body. Anyway, so much for the fanaticism, let’s move over and discuss more about this Hyundai Kona Special Iron Man Edition 2019.
Obviously, it’s a collaboration between Marvel and Hyundai, and this sassy car will come out early 2019.

So, the Hyundai Kona Special Iron Man Edition 2019 sports an all-wheel drive that can help the driver overcome any type of road conditions. Besides that, it also has a Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist that is vital to road safety as it activates the brakes automatically when its sensors detect dangerous and sudden braking of the car ahead of you or if a pedestrian suddenly appears in front of your car. It works as preventive measure when an incident of collision is about to happen.
