Continuing the strategy of city names in Hyundai's existing SUV models, BAYON takes its name from Bayonne, the capital of the Basque Country in France. Bayonne, a charming holiday destination in the southwest of the country, inspires a model that is produced entirely for Europe with a quality that will meet the expectations of European customers.
A different design
Hyundai BAYON has a very different design feature compared to its competitors. Designed with comfort and practicality in mind, the car has eye-catching proportions and powerful graphics. In this way, it can be easily distinguished from other models. The latest design product in the Hyundai SUV family, BAYON also shows a great harmony between proportion, architecture, style and technology. Prepared within the framework of Hyundai's new design identity, "Sensuous Sportiness", that is, "Emotional Sportiness", the car combines a stylish look with its innovative solutions.
BAYON begins to express itself with a large grille at the front. There are large air openings on both sides of the grille, which opens downwards and to the side. The lighting group consisting of three parts, including daytime running lights, low and high beams, gives the vehicle a stylish ambiance. Emphasizing the feeling of spaciousness, the daytime running lights are positioned towards the end of the hood. The gray section at the bottom of the front bumper reinforces the car's characteristic SUV identity.
On the side of the BAYON is a dynamic shoulder line. This hard and sharp wedge-shaped line is in perfect harmony with the arrow-shaped taillights, the C-pillar that runs towards the ceiling and the horizontal line that transitions in a line towards the rear door. The design philosophy, which offers a superior architecture thanks to these hard and sharp lines on the side, also gives the car a feeling of spaciousness.
On the back of the car, a completely different design feature emerges. This design line, which has never been used in a Hyundai model before, clearly reveals the car's spaciousness and SUV feel, just like at the front. While the rear taillights are given in the form of arrows, a black section draws attention in the middle. Thanks to these angular lines and the black part, the volume is emphasized, while at the same time the reverse and oblique transitions between the trunk and the bumper offer a visually unique and impressive design. LED taillights and a gray diffuser are another element that supports this lively section. Aluminum alloy wheels, developed in accordance with the SUV body type, are given in BAYON with 16 and 17 inch diameters depending on the equipment level. Hyundai BAYON comes off the production line with a total of nine exterior color options.
A modern and digital interior
BAYON has a spacious and spacious interior. The luggage space in the interior, which maximizes the comfort of the front and rear passengers, is also extremely sufficient for the use of families. Depending on the equipment level, there is a 10,25-inch digital display and a 10,25-inch infotainment screen in the interior. In addition, the car has an 8-inch screen, again depending on the equipment level. There is also LED ambient lighting in the cockpit, door handles and storage pockets of the car, which has an extraordinary design that makes the interior stylish. The new car, which has 9 different color options on its body, also has two different interior colors in its cabin. Together with the completely black and beige upholstery, a calm atmosphere is offered that will allow the driver to focus on the interior.
Class-leading connectivity and technology features
As with other Hyundai models, BAYON has an advanced equipment list that leads its segment. BAYON, which stands out with wireless charging, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which has become one of the most important requirements of today, thus offers maximum comfort and convenience in the B-SUV segment. While all mobile devices can be charged with the front and rear USB ports, Bose sound system is also included for a high level of music enjoyment, depending on the equipment.
Width and Comfort
Hyundai BAYON easily provides all the characteristics of a vehicle in the B-SUV segment. It offers ease of use, especially fuel efficiency, and sufficient loading space. The interior of the family-friendly car, which offers comfortable use in urban and outdoor traffic with its compact exterior dimensions, also reflects the SUV atmosphere thanks to its high seating position.
The car has 411 liters of luggage space. BAYON thus comes with a larger trunk volume despite its compact dimensions. Functionality is not forgotten while transporting high-sized items thanks to the smart luggage pane that can be slid.
The B-SUV is 4.180mm long, 1.775mm wide and 1.500mm high. BAYON has a wheelbase of 2.580 mm and offers an ideal legroom. With this sufficient distance, front or rear passengers have an extremely comfortable driving experience.
This figure is given as 1.072 mm on the front and 882 mm on the back. BAYON offers a ground clearance of up to 17 mm with its 183-inch rim tire combination and stands out higher than other B-SUV models.
Best in class security package
BAYON owes its safety and robustness to the advanced safety equipment in its equipment list. Equipped with SmartSense security features, as in other Hyundai SUV models, most systems are standard in the car.
Distinguishing itself from its competitors with its semi-autonomous driving feature, BAYON helps its driver not to leave the lane with the Lane Keeping Assistant (LFA). Forward Collision Assist (FCA), on the other hand, primarily warns the driver audibly and visually when approaching a vehicle or object in front. If the driver does not brake, it automatically starts braking to prevent the collision from occurring.
BAYON also begins to warn the driver in case of a possible focus problem, so that he can concentrate. Driver Attention Alert (DAW) continuously analyzes driving style to detect drowsy or inattentive driving.
In addition to all these features, Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) works through sensors. The driver is informed before leaving the vehicle so that children or pets are not forgotten in the back seat. In this way, possible dangers or accidents are prevented. BAYON has an automatic parking system to prevent similar accidents when reversing. An audible warning is given when the driver cannot detect the vehicle from the opposite side.
Hyundai BAYON is produced with an improved engine family. The MPi and T-GDi turbocharged engines stand out with their fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions. In addition, 48-volt mild hybrid technology (48V) is also offered for greater fuel economy. The 48V mild hybrid technology offered at BAYON is offered with a 7DCT automatic transmission and 120 horsepower.
The 1.0 hp version of the 100-liter T-GDi engine can be preferred without the 48V mild hybrid technology. Combined with the 7DCT, this option has 100 PS. Apart from this effective option with three different driving modes, Eco, Normal and Sport, there is also a 6 liter 6 PS naturally aspirated engine offered with a 1.4-speed manual or 100-speed automatic transmission with torque converter. The 1.4 liter 100 PS naturally aspirated engine in Bayon is being launched as the most demanded option in our country and expected to reach the highest sales volumes.
The BAYON is the first Hyundai SUV to be equipped with Rev Matching, a synchronized gearshift speed matching system generally developed for Hyundai's high performance N models. This system in the DCT transmission synchronizes the engine to the shaft, allowing for smoother or sportier downshifts. Thus, possible delays or losses are prevented by keeping the rev high while downshifting.
