Using the same underpinnings as the i20, the Bayon will also share its engines and most of its interior. The i20 is currently sold with a 99bhp 1.0-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine, although in other markets the car also gets a naturally aspirated 83bhp 1.2-litre engine, and a 118bhp version of the turbocharged 1.0-litre engine. We don’t expect an electric or hybrid model, despite petrol and diesel cars being banned in the UK by 2030.

Full powertrain and engine range now revealed:

BAYON boasts excellent fuel efficiency and highly competitive CO2 emissions ranking thanks to an updated Kappa engine family. The T-GDi is a downsized turbo-charged engine with direct injection for optimum efficiency. When combined with Hyundai’s unique 48-volt mild hybrid technology (48V) with intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), this results in even more enhanced fuel savings and efficiency.

iMT disengages the engine from the transmission when the driver releases the accelerator. This allows the vehicle to start coasting, reducing emissions and saving fuel. There are two different coasting levels associated with iMT: first, when the engine is idle, and second, when the engine is turned completely off. The engine is restarted again as soon as the driver presses either the brake or the accelerator pedal, and starts running again in the same gear as when it was switched off. This results in better fuel efficiency with no compromises on performance.

BAYON also features Hyundai’s unique Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology, which regulates the duration of the valve opening and closing according to driving conditions. This optimises engine performance while also improving fuel efficiency, resulting in reduced emissions and saving fuel.

At the top of the line-up is a 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with 48V and 120 or 100 PS. This can be coupled with the 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT) or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT).

The 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with 48V also comes with three drive modes to optimise the engine response and steering performance based on driving conditions. These are Eco, Normal and Sport.

BAYON is the first Hyundai SUV to come equipped with Rev Matching, a feature usually reserved for Hyundai’s high-performance models. Rev matching synchronises the engine to the output shaft, allowing for smoother or sportier downshifts. It will be available for the 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with 48V when paired with the 6iMT in Sport mode.
