While Hyundai Motor released new teaser images of its all-new B-segment crossover SUV, Bayon, a few days ago, today our colleague SHM Studio have caught the compact SUV back in South Korea ahead an inminent release in the European market.
The images revealed by Hyundai were low-light teaser images that reveals a wide and connected design with a clean, high-tech look. This Bayon (codenamed as BC3 CUV) could be like a competitor for the Stonic, leaving the Kona more upscale after its facelift.
Additionally, the company has confirmed that Bayon will be the latest model to incorporate its Sensuous Sportiness design identity in Europe, which combines emotional value with innovative design solutions.
At the front, an air intake band stretching across the entire front of the vehicle and wide, narrow DRLs generate width. The broad front grille opens at the bottom, creating a solid stance. The headlamps are separated from the DRLs, creating a unique light architecture for a distinctive look.
The rear design of the crossover utility vehicle features arrow-shaped brake lights connected by a thin red line. Positioned far out to the sides, these lamps enhance the visual impression of width, making the rear graphic even more outstanding.
Inside and according the spy pics we already have seen, the interior of the Bayon will be the practically the same as the i20 (at the end it is just a higher i20) Like Rio (YB) and Stonic (YB CUV) the i20 and Bayon are (BC3 and BC3 CUV respectively).
About the powertrain, it is expected to share the same line-up as the i20, with the entry 1.2 Naturally aspirated and the 1.0 Turbo GDi with 48v mild hybrid variants. Hyundai’s Bayon will be available in Europe in the first half of 2021. More information will be revealed in the coming weeks.
