Introducing the all-new Hyundai Bayon
Small on the outside, but spacious on the inside, the all-new Bayon is Hyundai's latest addition to their range of SUVs.
Hyundai have been on a roll with the design of their vehicles in recent years, which consistently offer stylish looks and a tasteful cabin layout. The all-new Bayon is no exception, and has been built to provide a lasting impression.
In addition to a sharp appearance and spacious interior, the all-new Bayon will boast a range of advanced safety equipment alongside a variety of connectivity features. Alongside the efficient choice of engines, mild hybrid technology is available; helping to to reduce emissions and running costs.
Design and Practicality
The all-new Bayon certainly makes a strong impression thanks to its unique styling. Features, such as the wide grille, narrow head lights, and visually extended rear window, all contribute towards the all-new Bayon's sharp looks. Complementing the overall package are a total of nine colours, which includes an optional two-tone roof in black.
Emphasis has been placed on creating a spacious interior for passengers of all sizes. As such, this crossover has a generous amount of head and knee room in the front and rear. All models come with 5-doors as standard, so gaining access to the back seats is easy; ideal for fitting a child's seat.
With 411 litres of space, the boot can accommodate just about any everyday task, such as food shopping. The intelligent boot cover can slide in behind the back seats for convenient storage when it isn't required.
Technology and Safety
Typical of Hyundai, the all-new Bayon is well-equipped and boasts a range of desirable safety features. Entry-level models get an 8-inch Display Audio infotainment system, and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. However, a sharper 10.25-inch touchscreen system is also available, and comes with satellite-navigation.
Two USB ports can be found in the front, and one in the back, allowing for three devices to charge simultaneously. A wireless charging pad and a Bose sound system will be available, too.
Each model will come with Bluelink and LIVE services, which allows you to connect your smartphone to the car and access useful features such as maintenance schedules, cloud-based navigation routes, street parking information, and calendar integration.
All-new Bayon available safety features:
- Lane Following Assist (LFA)
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
- Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
- eCall (automatically alerts emergency services if the vehicle's airbags are deployed)
- Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)
Economy and Performance
Initially, the all-new Bayon will be available with two petrol engines, one of which features mild hybrid technology.
The entry-level 1.2-litre MPi petrol engine only produces a humble 82bhp, but it offers flexible performance lower down in the rev-range and combines with a 5-speed manual gearbox to provide a refined ride.
Alternatively, there will be a turbocharged 1.0-litre GDi petrol unit that is fitted with a 48V mild hybrid system. Choose from two power outputs: 98bhp or 118bhp. Complementing this drivetrain is an intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), which allows you to coast when you aren't using the accelerator. As a result, emissions and fuel usage are reduced. However, a more traditional 7-speed auto is also available.
