Hyundai announces BAYON prices and specifications
Hyundai Motor UK has announced the pricing and specification of BAYON, the latest member of the popular Hyundai SUV line-up in Europe.
The all-new BAYON has a unique exterior design for a distinctive look on the road. Wide, narrow DRLs which are completely separate from the headlamps create a distinctive light architecture, and an air intake band stretching across the entire front of the vehicle generates width. A broad front grill creates a solid stance. At the rear, two arrow-shaped brake lights, positioned far out to the sides and connected by a thin red line, further emphasise the vehicle’s width.
BAYON models will all be powered by a 1.0 turbocharged GDi engine which combines with a 48 Volt Mild Hybrid system to provide a choice of 100PS or 120PS power outputs. Customers are offered the choice of two transmissions, an intelligent 6 speed manual (iMT) that features an electronically controlled clutch to decouple the transmission from the engine under certain driving conditions to enhance efficiency, or a 7 speed dual clutch transmission which combines optimum fuel consumption and automatically controlled gear changes.
All-new BAYON is equipped with a number of Hyundai SmartSense systems as standard with six airbags, the automatic emergency call system eCall, Lane Keep Assist (LKA) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Forward Collision Assist (FCA) warning with pedestrian and cyclist detection as well as automatic headlamps with High Beam Assist (HBA) are standard on board, with optional Lane Follow Assist (LFA) and Blindspot Collision Warning (BCW) on higher specification models. Standard speed sensitive automatic door locking, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) also provide additional peace of mind.
BAYON will be available in 3 specification levels, SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate, with a choice of 6 speed manual or 7 speed dual clutch transmission options to combine with the 100PS 1.0 turbocharged GDi 48 volt mild hybrid engine. Customers opting for Premium or Ultimate specifications also have the choice of a higher 120PS output combined with either transmission option.
