The best of connectivity and technology

Like other Hyundai models, BAYON offers cutting-edge connectivity technologies that are not generally offered in its segment. It benefits from a state-of-the-art digital cockpit and premium infotainment features.

Customers can choose between the AVN system with 10.25 inch screen and the 8 inch multimedia system integrating Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functions. In addition, the 10.25-inch digital speedometers feature different graphics depending on the driving mode and driver selections.

Two USB ports for the front occupants and one USB port for the rear passengers allow up to three devices to be charged simultaneously. One of the two front ports also allows data transfer, giving occupants the option of connecting their phone to the vehicle’s infotainment system. A premium Bose audio system completes this equipment, guaranteeing occupants a high-quality audio experience thanks to its eight speakers, including a subwoofer.

First-class security equipment

BAYON shares its safe and robust character with the other SUVs in the Hyundai range, and benefits from the same safety equipment. It also stands out from other models in its segment with its extensive Hyundai SmartSense safety package, most of which is standard equipment.

A number of semi-autonomous driving functions clearly set BAYON apart from its competitors. Active Lane Keeping Assist (LFA) helps the vehicle stay centered in its lane. The Autonomous Emergency Braking System (FCA) first gives an audible warning, then applies the brakes if necessary to avoid a collision. This system integrates the detection of vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, as well as the intersection function, which activates the brakes to avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle when the driver turns left at an intersection. Another advanced feature is Adaptive Navigation-Based Cruise Control (NSCC) which uses data from the vehicle’s navigation system to automatically adjust speed on a highway or highway.

Active Blind Spot Monitoring (BCA) uses a front camera and rear radar to monitor the sides of the vehicle, and warns the driver via a warning light in the mirrors as soon as it detects the presence of vehicles in the blind spots . If necessary, the BCA system acts on the differential brake to avoid a collision or reduce its severity.

BAYON also incorporates a number of features to gently re-mobilize the driver’s attention when distracted. Driver Fatigue Detection (DAW) analyzes their driving habits to detect any signs of distraction or drowsiness. This system works in conjunction with the Upstream Vehicle Restart Alert (LVDA), which alerts the driver if they do not react quickly enough when the upstream vehicle restarts. In addition, before exiting the vehicle, the Rear Passenger Presence Alert (ROA) alerts the driver if the sensors detect movement in the rear seats. Thanks to this system, BAYON guarantees even greater safety for its rear passengers – including children and pets.

Other functions guarantee an optimum level of safety at reduced speed or when parking. The Autonomous Reverse Emergency Braking System (PCA-R) issues a warning and applies the brakes if necessary when an obstacle is detected behind the vehicle in reverse at reduced speed. Likewise, the Rear Traffic Detection System with Braking Function (RCCA) assists the driver when leaving a parking space in reverse while another vehicle is approaching. Finally, the semi-autonomous Active Parking Assistance (PA) system uses a series of sensors that work together to help the driver park in tight spaces.

In the event of an accident with triggering of an airbag, the eCall function automatically calls the emergency services. Occupants can also activate this feature at the push of a button.

Performance and powertrains

BAYON owes its excellent levels of consumption and CO2 emissions to its range of optimized engines. With reduced displacement, the T-GDi block is a direct injection supercharged engine guaranteeing optimum fuel efficiency. This model also incorporates Continuous Valve Open and Close Time (CVVD) technology, which regulates the valve open and close time based on driving conditions. This technology optimizes engine performance while improving fuel efficiency, which helps reduce emissions and fuel consumption. BAYON is also offered with 48 V light hybridization technology. This technology consists of a 48 V battery, a semi-hybrid starter-alternator (Mild Hybrid Starter Generator / MHSG) and a low voltage DC / DC converter. The starter-alternator recovers kinetic energy and converts it into electricity which it stores in the 48 V battery system where it can be used to stabilize the on-board 12 V power supply for fuel savings.

The 48 V light hybridization system can be paired with an intelligent manual transmission (iMT), a completely exclusive technological combination that guarantees even greater fuel economy and efficiency. The iMT decouples the engine from the transmission as soon as the driver releases the accelerator. Thus, the vehicle can go into “freewheel” mode, reducing emissions and fuel consumption. There are two types of “freewheel” mode associated with the iMT: in the first case, the engine is at idle speed, and in the second, it is completely off. The engine restarts as soon as the driver depresses the brake or accelerator pedal, in the same gear as when he came to a stop. Thus, BAYON offers better energy efficiency without making any compromise in terms of performance.

At the top of the range sits the 1.0 liter 100 hp T-GDi engine mated to 48 V technology. It can be mated to an intelligent 6-speed manual transmission (6iMT) or to a dual-clutch transmission with 7 reports (7DCT).

The 1.0-liter T-GDi engine is offered with three drive modes designed to optimize engine responsiveness and directional control according to driving conditions. These are Eco, Normal and Sport modes.

A 1.2-liter 84 hp MPi engine paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox is also available.

BAYON is Hyundai’s first SUV to be equipped with the “Rev Matching” feature, which is generally reserved for the brand’s high-performance models. This function is used to automatically adjust the engine speed when downshifting. This results in smoother downshifts, guaranteeing better driving comfort. This system is available with the 1.0-liter T-GDi engine coupled to the DCT-7 for all driving modes, and with the 1.0-liter 48V T-GDi engine paired with the 6iMT in driving mode. Sport.
