03 Mar 2021 | International News : South Korea

Hyundai Motor has revealed the Bayon, an all new crossover SUV designed specifically for Europe. As a B-segment SUV, the Bayon will be the latest and smallest member of Hyundai's expanding SUV family.

The new Bayon features a compact exterior, a roomy interior, and a long list of intelligent safety and connectivity features which make it stand out in its segment. With this, the Bayon democratises technology, making high-tech safety and connectivity features accessible for all.

The Bayon is the latest Hyundai model to be styled with Hyundai's Sensuous Sportiness design identity
In line with Hyundai's existing SUV naming strategy, the Bayon's name was inspired by Bayonne, the capital of the French Basque Country. With the Bayon, Hyundai has now launched or enhanced seven new models in just 12 months - or 20, counting all body types and powertrain variations, making 2020 a record year for its fleet expansion.

The 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.

The 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. 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, with a horizontal air intake band and DRLs to establish width.

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.

A spacious cabin with a digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment screen makes for a highly ergonomic environment in the Bayon
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. Full LED lights and indicators complete its modern look.

The Bayon features a clean, roomy, well-lit interior. There is a strong focus on maximising front and rear passenger comfort and increasing boot space. Occupants can enjoy LED ambient lighting technology integrated into the front passenger foot areas, door wells, and front door pull handle areas, as well as the storage area below the centre console.

Passengers can choose between a 10.25-inch AVN screen or an 8.0-inch Display Audio. The 8.0-inch Display Audio is available with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making Hyundai the first car manufacturer to introduce wireless phone mirroring into a car of this size.

Two USB ports for the front passengers and one for the rear make it possible for up to three devices to charge simultaneously. One of the front ports also allows data transfer, enabling occupants to connect their phone to the vehicle's infotainment system. A premium Bose sound system completes the package, promising occupants a high-quality listening experience.

The 411-litre boot can be further expanded by folding down the rear seats 
The Bayon delivers the comfort and storage space of an SUV with the agility and fuel efficiency of a B-segment vehicle. Its compact exterior size and its family-friendly interior mean customers can enjoy the best of both worlds, while it's compact size and excellent visibility make it easy to enter and easy to handle.

With 411 litres of boot space, the Bayon stands out for its large amount of storage space, despite its compact size. An intelligent trunk cover that can be slid along the rear of the back seat to cover the cargo brings an added benefit.

The Bayon shares its safe and robust DNA with the other members of the Hyundai SUV family, and it has the safety features to match. Another way it stands out in its segment, the Bayon offers an extensive list of Hyundai SmartSense safety features. Many of them are included as standard equipment.

Safety systems like Lane Following Assist works to keep the vehicle centred in its lane, while Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist first sounds an alarm, then, if necessary, applies the brakes to prevent a collision from occurring. This feature includes car, pedestrian and cyclist detection, as well as Junction Turning, which can apply the brakes to prevent a collision with an oncoming car when turning left at an intersection.
