2021 Hyundai Bayon SUV Revealed
The Hyundai Bayon SUV is unveiled and will start to be sold in different foreign markets as a substitute for the i20 Active. Bayon is the reaction of Hyundai to a long list of crossovers offered in the rest of the country, beginning with the Volkswagen T-Cross, Nissan Juke, and Ford Puma. The name of the Hyundai SUV is known as ‘Bye-Onn,’ inspired by the capital of the Basque Country in France, which also indicates that the model is mostly for European customers.
The 2021 Hyundai Bayon is based on the new i20 but has a special external design, identical to the recent Kona upgrade. Thin DRLs and arrow-like headlamps are used. The theme of the arrow continues on the back, with a similar style.
The 2021 Hyundai Bayon SUV has solid shoulder lines along the edge, but the tapering roofline gives it an overlapping appearance. Strong coverings along the front and back and imitation skid plates give it a more durable look. The Bayon does not have a 4×4 or an all-wheel-drive gear and, like the i20, is only a front-wheel drive.
The 2021 Hyundai Bayon has a very well-known appearance, as most are straight elevators from the i20. The whole black dashboard, switchgear, wheel steering, and 10.25inch panel are included in these. Hyundai claims that the Bayon is an urban vehicle that is built to take utility, spaciousness, and convenience into account. A 2,580mm (similar to i20s) wheel-board makes 1,072mm leg rooms for passengers in front-seat zones, with 882mm rear seats, and a 411-liter boot, which is extendable to 1,205 liters with a partitioned flat rear bench.
Two engine variants are available globally on Bayon–one 1,2 liter petrol for 84hp and the other 1,0-liter turbo-petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology, which can be supplied in two packs, a 100hp or a 120hp. The 1.0 turbo-petrol is available in countries such as the United Kingdom that do not have a 1.2-liter engine. Gearbox options include, depending on the engine, a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed iMT.
There is no news of the Bayon coming to India. However, Hyundai is planning a new SUV which is situated in the Indian Venue, and is competing with the next Tata HBX (Timero). In addition, by June of this year, the new 6-and 7-seater Alcazar SUV will arrive in the showrooms. Hyundai is also planning the i20 N-Line for India, a market introduction that could be observed this year.
