Is the Hyundai Kona too big for you? Then take this Hyundai Bayon

Consumers are still craving crossovers and SUVs. And of course Hyundai is happy to respond to that. The Korean manufacturer now has five models in that category in the delivery program in our country: the Hyundai Kona, Tucson, Santa Fe, Nexo and Ioniq 5. We feel that there is little space under the Kona, but Hyundai still has found a hole. The Hyundai Bayon will be the Benjamin from later this year (for the summer holidays).

Designed in Europe for the European market

The model is named after the French city of Bayonne, because a car designed for Europe must have a European name, according to Hyundai. From the rear, we find the Bayon somewhat like the new Hyundai i20, with a black area under the rear window and a light strip connecting the V-shaped rear lights. The front of the SUV is very Kona, with a large, flared ‘mouth’ and separate daytime running lights high on the nose. Hyundai supplies 15-inch steel wheels or 16-inch alloy wheels on the Bayon.

Relatively gigantic infotainment screen

In the interior, a number of things stand out: the truly enormous gear lever, the optional (and relatively gigantic) screen of the infotainment screen, and the ventilation grilles, which, like the new Hyundai Tucson, are ‘hidden’ in a horizontal grid. that spans the entire cabin. The Hyundai Bayon is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, has three USB ports and can be equipped with a wireless phone charger.

Hyundai Bayon hardly smaller than Hyundai Kona

With a length of 4.18 meters, width of 1.775 meters and height of 1.49 meters, the Hyundai Bayon is hardly smaller than the Kona. It only saves 2 centimeters in length, 3 centimeters in width and 6 centimeters in height. The wheelbase of the Bayon is no more than 2 centimeters shorter (2.58 versus 2.60 meters). The trunk can carry between 411 and 1205 liters. With the Kona that is even less: 374 – 1156 liters.

No electric variant, only petrol engines

There is as yet no electric variant of the Hyundai Bayon available. The car will be available with a 1.0-liter T-GDi petrol engine with mild hybrid support. In combination with Hyundai’s Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), it delivers 100 hp. If the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is chosen, the power goes up to 120 hp. The iMT manual transmission disengages the engine when the driver releases the throttle. This reduces fuel consumption.
