Hyundai has announced that its new Bayon compact SUV will cost from £ 20,295 when it goes on sale in July.
From launch, three trim levels – SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate – two engine options and two transmission options are available, with more powerful models only available in higher trims.
All versions of the Bayon are powered by a 1.0 liter petrol engine with 48V mild hybrid technology. The turbocharged three-cylinder unit will be offered in either 99bhp or 118bhp versions, both of which are offered with either a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual. The manual transmission includes an electronically controlled clutch that can decouple the engine and transmission to improve efficiency under certain driving conditions.
Entry-level SE Connect cars are only available with the 99bhp engine, with prices starting at £ 20,295 for the manual and £ 21,545 for the automatic. All SE Connect cars come with 16 inch alloy rims, roof racks, spoiler, LED daytime running lights, air conditioning, cruise control, rear parking sensors with camera reversing, an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument.
Starting at £ 22,495, the Premium adds 17-inch alloys, privacy windows, heated front seats and steering wheel, automatic climate control, LED headlights and taillights, a 10.25 touchscreen inch with live satellite navigation and a wireless phone charger for compatible devices and height adjustable front seat belts. Higher end models are also available with the higher horsepower engine.
Ultimate specs start at £ 23,795 and feature glossy black exterior mirrors, a standard two-tone black roof, black and gray interior, keyless entry and start, and a premium BOSE audio system.
All Bayon models are equipped with Hyundai SmartSense safety systems, including emergency call system, lane keeping assist with lane departure warning, driver attention alert, autonomous emergency braking , front collision assistance with detection of pedestrians and cyclists and high beam assistance. Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot Collision Warning are standard on Ultimate models.
