Hyundai Bayon electrified SUV priced from £20,295
Hyundai has released UK range information for the Bayon compact SUV, positioned as a rival for vehicles such as the Peugeot 2008 and Volkswagen T-Cross.
The newcomer will launch with a choice of two 48-volt ‘mild hybrid’ powertrains, producing 100hp or 120hp. Both are available with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or the company’s ‘intelligent manual’ gearbox, which can decouple the engine and coast at low loads to save fuel.
Fuel economy and CO2 emissions have not been confirmed yet, but Hyundai has include Benefit-in-Kind rates of 27% and 28% depending on the trim level and powertrain. That equates to CO2 emissions of between 115 and 119g/km for most variants, and 120 to 124g/km for high trim levels with the automatic gearbox – or around 55-60mpg.
Pricing starts at £20,295 for the SE Connect trim, which is only available with the lower-powered engine but can be equipped with the automatic gearbox for £1,250. Customers choosing Premium and Ultimate trims get the option of both engines, and both gearboxes, and the range tops out at £25,795 on the road.
All models include Hyundai’s five-year unlimited mileage warranty, while digital instruments, cruise control and a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity are standard across the range.
