The new Hyundai Bayon on sale in Ireland now

The Hyundai Bayon has arrived in Ireland and goes on sale priced from €21,645 rising to €24,245.

It has been designed for Europe and has been given a European name to reflect that – Bayon is inspired by ‘Bayonne’, the capital of the French Basque Country.

With on-trend crossover styling, it is now the most compact of Hyundai’s SUV family – joining the Kona, Tucson and Santa Fe. Bayon is the latest model from Hyundai to showcase the brand’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design identity, with strong lines, slim headlights and arrow-shaped lights at the rear.

In Ireland the new Bayon goes on sale with a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 84 hp. It’s available from launch with a 5-speed manual gearbox, with an automatic to join the range in January 2022. Motor tax is €200 per year for the Bayon 1.2 manual.

The interior of the new Bayon has been designed to be clean, roomy, and well-lit with ambient lighting available as standard on Executive models, which also get the full digital look with touchscreen and 10.25-inch digital cluster for the driver.

There has been a focus on maximising front and rear passenger comfort and increasing boot space, with 411 litres available.

New Bayon goes on sale in Ireland in two trim levels – Comfort Plus and Executive – with a two tone roof option available on the Executive model.

Standard equipment includes roof rails, air con and Bluetooth, while the Executive model (from €23,645) adds 16″ alloys, heated from seats, automatic air con, 8″ touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charger and digital instrument panel.

The launch of the new Bayon means Hyundai has now launched or enhanced seven new models in just 12 months.

The Bayon is in Hyundai dealers around Ireland now.
