Artistic inspiration

Art from around Europe inspired by the BAYON

To celebrate the BAYON’s world premiere, we invited 9 different artists from all over Europe to create unique pieces of art inspired by its design. The idea for the campaign came from the unique characteristics of the model: it is the first Hyundai model developed specifically for Europe – and its distinctive design, which incorporates Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design identity – served as a source of artistic inspiration.

Express yourself. Your car. Your colours.

You can choose from a total of nine exterior colours to complement the eye-catching silhouette of your all-new BAYON, including a new colour: Mangrove Green Pearl. On top of that, the option of a two-tone roof and matching mirror housings in Phantom Black lets you further customise some colour combinations to express to create a car perfectly matched to your taste.

Best-in-class safety package with SmartSense.

The all-new BAYON shares its safe and robust DNA with the other members of the Hyundai SUV family – and it has the safety features to match. Another way it stands out in its segment: an extensive list of Hyundai SmartSense safety features – our cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. Many of them are included in the standard equipment already.

Lane Following Assist (LFA).

The all-new BAYON features Lane Following Assist (LFA). When activated, it keeps the car centred in its lane at speeds between 0 and 180 km/h on motorways and city streets.

Blind Spot Collision-avoidance Assist (BCA).

Using two radar sensors in the lower rear bumper, the system warns you of traffic in the blind spot area. Should you set the turn indicator in such a situation, it will sound an acoustic alert and brake to prevent collision.

Smart Cruise Control (SCC).

More safety and less stress. Maintains a set distance to the vehicle ahead, automatically reducing or increasing speed to a pre-set limit.

Rear Cross-traffic Collision-avoidance Assist (RCCA).

When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles approach from the side – it also applies the brakes automatically.

Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA).

This clever feature for city driving alerts the driver when the vehicle in front departs from an idle state, like at a stoplight or in a traffic jam.




Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA).

The FCA system automatically brakes when it detects sudden braking by the car ahead or detects pedestrians or cyclists in your path. Now updated with a Junction Turning feature, specially calibrated to help prevent frontal collisions when turning left at intersections (in left hand drive countries).



Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC).

This advanced feature uses data from the BAYON’s state-of-the-art navigation system and front radar to adjust speed autonomously when driving on a highway or motorway. The system anticipates upcoming curves or straights and adjusts speed for safer driving, automatically decelerating and re-accelerating to your set original speed after a curve.


Dynamic performance meets excellent fuel efficiency.

The all-new BAYON delivers excellent fuel efficiency and highly competitive CO2 emissions thanks to its updated T-GDi engines – downsized turbo-charged engines with direct injection for optimum efficiency and driving fun. When combined with our unique 48-volt mild hybrid technology (48V) with Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), you get even more enhanced fuel savings and efficiency.

Intelligent efficiency.

Choose from 2 engines in 4 variants that deliver some of best CO2 efficiency in its class – because taking care of the environment is as important to us as it is to you.

Mild hybrid.

Save fuel and reduce emissions. The all-new BAYON is available 48V mild hybrid technology to support the combustion engine with additional torque during acceleration.

Smooth shifting.

Choose from several smooth shifting transmission options: including: a 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT) or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT).


1.0 litre T-GDi 100 PS.

The 100 PS version of the 1.0-litre T-GDi is also available without 48V and can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) or 7DCT.


1.0 litre T-GDi 120 PS.

Our three cylinder, 1.0-litre Turbo GDI engine is designed to take the all-new BAYON's sporty personality to the road. With 120 PS and our new 48v mild hybrid technology available, this low-key powerhouse makes the car just as fun to drive as it looks. It can be coupled with the 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT) or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT).


1.2 litre MPi petrol engine.

With 1197 cc of engine displacement and 4 cylinders, our 84 PS entry engine is a gentle force to be reckoned with. Coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission, this power unit offers offers both full control and pleasant torque delivery.





Rev Matching.

BAYON is the first Hyundai SUV with this feature, which is usually reserved for our high-performance models. Rev matching synchronises the 1.0 T-GDi engine to the output shaft, allowing for smoother or sportier downshifts.



48V mild hybrid – save fuel and reduce emissions.

The BAYON’s 48V mild hybrid system supports the combustion engine with additional torque during acceleration to save fuel and reduce emissions. Hyundai’s mild hybrid technology features a compact 0.46 kWh 48 volt lithium-ion battery and a new Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (up to 10kW electric power). Find out more about its advantages here.


Comfort start.

The mild hybrid system has particular advantages in city traffic, with the Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG) supporting the combustion engine when re-starting after traffic stops. This action supports a faster and smoother engine start with supplemental torque, drawing on energy from the 48V battery. The MHSG assists the combustion engine during take-off by compensating with torque and power.


Under acceleration, the MHSG supports the combustion engine with compensatory 4 to 10 kW of power, depending on the battery system’s state of charge and the degree of accelerator input from the driver. Once the required speed is reached, the MHSG shifts to neutral mode, delivering no power. As a result CO2 emissions, as well as fuel consumption, can be reduced by up to 11 per cent.* (*NEDC 2.0)
