2021 Hyundai Bayon crossover unveiledMarch 2, 2021
Hyundai has unveiled its new Bayon subcompact crossover. The novelty of the 2021 model year received an unusual appearance and a rather spacious interior.
The South Korean brand has just unveiled another crossover. Contrary to expectations, the new Bayon is actually no smaller than the existing Kona crossover as they share the same underpinnings.
At 4.18 meters long, 1.77 meters wide and 1.59 meters high, the new subcompact crossover is slightly longer than the Kona, but slightly narrower and with a lower roofline. The wheelbase is 2.58 meters.
Essentially, the Hyundai Bayon is a crossover performance of the i20.
The car received odd designs, ranging from split headlights to chopped edges, and boomerang LED backlights.
Available exclusively with mild hybrid technology, the 120-horsepower version of the 1.0-liter turbo engine can handle both manual and automatic. The Hyundai Bayon will only be available in a front-wheel drive version.
The base engine for the Bayon crossover will be a 1.2-liter gasoline engine with 84 horsepower. This motor is aggregated with a classic five-speed “mechanics”. The 1.0-liter turbocharged engine will already produce 100 “horses” and will work with a 6-speed “mechanics” or an optional 7-speed “automatic”.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Hyundai launched the production of a new Tucson crossover. The assembly line is located in the US state of Alabama. For the model, this is its debut at a factory in the United States.
