The all-new Hyundai Bayon is an all-new crossover SUV designed specifically for Europe. As a B-segment SUV, it is the latest and smallest member of Hyundai’s expanding SUV family. Bayon features a compact exterior, a roomy interior, and a long list of intelligent safety and connectivity features that make it stand out in its segment. With this, Hyundai Bayon democratises technology, making high-tech safety and connectivity features accessible for all. Bayon is the latest design statement within the Hyundai SUV family, distinctive through unexpected and eye-catching proportions and strong graphic features. Furthermore, it encompasses the Hyundai design identity Sensuous Sportiness, defined by the harmony between proportion, architecture, styling, and technology. This latest interpretation of Sensuous Sportiness combines emotional values with innovative solutions. In line with Hyundai’s existing SUV naming strategy, Bayon’s name was inspired by a vacation hotspot: Bayonne, the capital of the French Basque Country and one of the most beautiful destinations in the south-west of France. As Hyundai Bayon is designed to meet the demands of the European market, the company decided to give it a European name.
Hyundai Bayon is characterised by a distinctive exterior design that separates it clearly from its competition. Unique design solutions, high-tech looking details and a clean look elevate it from the crowd. On the side, a dynamic shoulder provides a wedge-shaped appearance. The arrow-shaped C-pillar provides dynamic and unexpected architecture. This, in combination with fender feature and cladding, defines its unique character.
At the front, a wide grille opens at the bottom, creating a solid stance. Three-part main lights combined with air intakes establish a unique look and architecture. A horizontal air intake band and DRLs establish width, and a lower skid plate confirms its SUV identity. To the rear, arrow-shaped lights underline the pillar dynamics. Their far-out position creates a wide stance. In addition, a thin horizontal line connecting the taillights further emphasises width and connects the rear and the side in one gesture. Angular lines above the rear arch emphasise volume, creating a vivid section.
Hyundai Bayon features a clean, roomy, well-lit interior. There is a strong focus on maximising front and rear passenger comfort and increasing boot space. The interior is defined by a range of connectivity equipment, including a 10.25-inch digital cluster and a 10.25-inch AVN or 8-inch Display Audio. Occupants can benefit from LED ambient lighting technology integrated into the front foot areas, door wells, and front door pull handle areas, as well as the storage area below the centre console. Interior colour trims: Full Black, Dark Grey + Light Grey and
Dark Grey + Mangrove Green stitching and inserts. A carefully selected neutral range of interior colours and materials provides maximum compatibility with the exterior colour range. A calm colour and trim concept with small and subtle accents creates a serene atmosphere that allows the driver to focus. Bayon comes standard with a Full Black cloth interior, with two other optional colour combinations available.
Bayon boasts excellent fuel efficiency and highly competitive CO2 emissions thanks to an updated Kappa engine family. The T-GDi is a downsized turbo-charged engine with direct injection for optimum efficiency. Bayon also features Hyundai’s unique Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology, which regulates the duration of the valve opening and closing according to driving conditions. This optimises engine performance while also improving fuel efficiency, resulting in reduced emissions and saving fuel. Hyundai Bayon is also available with 48-volt mild hybrid technology (48V). The system comprises a 48-Volt battery, a Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG) and LDC converter (Low Voltage DC/DC). The MHSG generates kinetic energy from recuperation and stores it in the 48V battery system, where it can be used to stabilise the 12V on-board power supply and thus save fuel.
At the top of the line-up, Hyundai Bayon is available with a 1.0 T-GDi engine with 48V and 100 PS or 120 PS. This can be coupled with the 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT) or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT). The 48V mild hybrid technology can be combined with an intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), a unique technological pairing that ensures even more enhanced fuel savings and efficiency. iMT disengages the engine from the transmission when the driver releases the accelerator. This allows the vehicle to start coasting, reducing emissions and saving fuel. There are two different coasting levels associated with iMT: first, when the engine is idle, and second, when the engine is turned completely off. The engine is restarted again as soon as the driver presses either the brake or the accelerator pedal and starts running again in the same gear as when it was switched off. This results in better fuel efficiency with no compromises on performance.
The 100 PS version of the 1.0-litre T-GDi is also available without 48V and can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) or 7DCT. At the top of the line-up is a 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with 48V and 120 or 100 PS. This can be coupled with the 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT) or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT). The 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with and without 48V also comes with three drive modes to optimise the engine response and steering performance based on driving conditions. These are Eco, Normal and Sport. A 1.2-litre MPi engine with 84 PS paired with 5MT is available as well. Bayon is the first Hyundai SUV to come equipped with Rev Matching, a feature usually reserved for Hyundai’s high-performance models. Rev matching automatically adjusts the revs of the engine when the driver shifts from a higher to a lower gear. Consequently, it allows smoother downshifts for a more comfortable ride. It is available for the 1.0-litre T-GDi engine when paired with the 7DCT for all drive modes, and for the 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with 48V when paired with the 6iMT in Sport mode.
