Yesterday, Hyundai Motor revealed the name of a new crossover SUV model: Hyundai Bayon. Today, we can share the very first pictures of the Bayon (codenamed as BC3) while caught in South Korea courtesy of SHM Studio.
Hyundai has unveiled a new crossover SUV, the Hyundai Bayon, the car is designed to be a compact SUV and it comes with Hyundai’s latest technology. Bigger than the Venue and smaller than Creta, the Bayon is a stylish new Hyundai SUV for select markets only. Hyundai Bayon now revealed as the crossover SUV competitor in European market.
What we know so far?
Coming to the European market in the first half of 2021, Bayon will be a fully-new model and an important addition to the current Hyundai SUV line-up.
Hyundai is strongly established in the European SUV market already, in terms of our model range as well as our sales success. By launching a new, additional B-segment model as the entry point into our SUV line-up, we see a great opportunity to cover European customers’ demand even better and to increase our offering in a highly popular segment.Andreas-Christoph HofmannVice President of Marketing & Product
Hyundai Bayon will join the Kona, Tucson, NEXO and Santa Fe, becoming the latest member of the Hyundai SUV line-up in Europe.
The name Bayon was inspired by the city of Bayonne in the southwest of France. As Hyundai Bayon is primarily a European product, Hyundai decided to name it after a European city. Positioned between the Atlantic coast and the Pyrenees mountains, the French town is a great location for those who enjoy activities such as sailing and hiking, fitting with the lifestyle character of the new model.
During the last 20 years, the company has frequently taken inspiration from locations around the world to generate some of the best-known nameplates among SUVs. These include not only the Tucson and Santa Fe, named after cities in the states of Arizona and New Mexico respectively, but also the Kona – whose name is derived from the Kona district on the Big Island of Hawaii. Even the pioneering fuel-cell electric vehicle NEXO has a geographic connection, taking its name from Nexø – one of the largest towns on the popular Danish holiday island of Bornholm.
More details about the Hyundai Bayon will be revealed soon.

HYUNDAI is bestowing yet another new model upon us, writes William Scholes.
So prolific is Hyundai these days that it can be a little difficult to keep up with the latest goings on. This one is a small SUV called the Bayon, which seems to slot in beneath its other smallish SUV, the Kona.
Still, there is clearly huge appetite for all things SUV and Hyundai seems to know what it is doing.
The Bayon carries a lot of hardware from the i20 and is cloaked in the sort of interesting looking bodywork that may look more successful in real life than it does in these photographs.

Still, the paintwork is a nice colour ('mangrove green pearl', if you're interested) and it is an undeniably distinctive thing.
We're told that the Bayon will arrive with a single engine choice - a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol, available with outputs of either 99bhp or 118bhp.
You can have an optional 48-volt mild-hybrid system if you wish. Gearboxes are seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual which can disconnect itself from the engine while coasting. Unusually, the mild-hybrid with the manual gearbox gets 'rev matching' technology for sportier gear shifts - a feature typically seen on performance cars.
The Bayon is due to reach showrooms later this year.
