Hyundai announces prices and specs for new Bayon

Hyundai has revealed further details about its new Bayon compact SUV.

Priced from £20,295, the Bayon arrives as the latest member of Hyundai’s flourishing SUV line-up, sitting alongside cars like the Kona and Tucson.

It’s available with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine incorporating a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that helps to improve its efficiency. There’s the choice of either 98 or 118bhp outputs, as well as either a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission or an intelligent six-speed manual that can decouple the transmission from the engine to bolster efficiency even further.

The exterior of the car features a sharp design, with wide daytime running lights fitted as standalone units to the main headlamps. There’s a full-length air intake running across the front of the car, while at the rear two arrow-shaped brake lights help to continue the Bayon’s angular aesthetic.

It’ll be available in one of three specifications – SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate – with the first trim bringing 16-inch alloy wheels as standard alongside LED daytime running lights, air conditioning and cruise control. Inside, there’s an eight-inch infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, complemented by a 10.25-inch drivers display.

Finally, Ultimate models – priced from £23,795 – receive black gloss door mirrors and a two-tone black roof, as well as keyless entry and start. Inside, there’s a premium Bose sound system and both blind-spot collision warning and lane follow assist systems.
