All New Hyundai Bayon Compact Crossover
The Bayon is Hyundai’s all-new compact Crossover model further adding to Hyundai’s SUV/Crossover range of vehicles.
The compact Crossover segment was, once upon a time a very limited affair with very few options, but such is the increasing demand for such vehicles that some manufacturers are not only offering one but two compact Crossovers.
Hyundai already have the Kona, a small Crossover and the Bayon sits beside it in the range, being a tad smaller. They both sit below the medium-sized Tucson SUV and the largest of Hyundai’s SUVs, the Santa Fe.
New Hyundai Bayon Interior
The new Hyundai Bayon blends practicality with the latest tech, all models get a digital driver display and colour touchscreen infotainment system. Entry-level models get the 8-inch touchscreen with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay support, higher grade models get a bigger 10-inch system with integrated navigation and a wireless charging pad.
Considering it’s a compact, the Bayon feels spacious inside and even in the rear leg room is pretty good, two adults should fit comfortably, three might be a squeeze. There are also plenty of practical features and storage, the door bins are a generous size and there are plenty of little storage spaces dotted around the interior.
