Hyundai broadens SUV range with compact Bayon

Hyundai Bayon

HYUNDAI says its new Bayon will cost from £20,295 when it joins the company's burgeoning SUV line-up.

It's available with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine incorporating a 48-volt mild-hybrid system in either 98 or 118bhp outputs.

A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and an intelligent six-speed manual that can decouple the transmission from the engine to bolster efficiency are offered.

The Bayon is quite a distinctively styled vehicle, 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 emphasise its angular aesthetic.

The Bayon comes in SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate trims.

SE Connect cars get 16-inch alloy wheels as standard alongside LED daytime running lights, air conditioning and cruise control.
