Hyundai Bayon Is Officially Ranked As An Entry-Level Subcompact SUV

The recently released teaser showed bold front and rear light but now we are able to take a closer look at the Hyundai’s Supermini-based Bayon crossover. Designed with a high-riding B-segment hatch, the Bayon is powerful enough to compete with cars like Ford Puma, Volkswagen T-Cross, and Nissan Juke.

The subcompact SUV will land in showrooms this summer and will be sold starting with $28,276. Having its name inspired by the capital’s picturesque Basque Country, this model should reflect Hyundai’s targeted market – Europe. Sadly, this model won’t be available for U.S. customers.

It’s not your typical off-road vehicle. This model is definitely a conventional supermini if you strip away its ride height, the practical black wheelarch lips, and the bold front skid-plate. Despite its supermini look, the interior and luggage volume state great design work.

The model’s assertive look is ensured by the integrated Kona’s styling with the wafer-thin DRLs separating the hood from the bumper below and the arrow-shaped headlights at the rear-end. Also, it’s important to mention that the Bayon is based on Hyundai’s i20 hatchback, but isn’t offered in FWD.

The interior totally borrowed from the i20. All the Bayon versions will have a 10.25-inch digital instrument pack mounted right behind the steering wheel mated to one on the touchscreens on the top of the 8-inch version dashboard, or the basic 10.25-inch version which includes a navigation system.

Hyundai Bayon’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine will be the same for both available versions while the base option for the mini version will deliver up to 98bhb and 172 Nm, and 118bhp and the same amount of torque. There are 48v mild-hybrid standard assistance and a six-speed manual transmission, or you can upgrade it to a seven-speed DCT.
