Details of the facelifted Hyundai Bayon have been annouced, with the revised crossover SUV now available to order.

The obvious change to the Hyundai Bayon, which was first released in 2021, is in its looks, with an overhauled front end with full width LED daytime running lights across the nose and standard LED headlights. The grille is different too, and the LED lights are standard at the back, complementing a redesigned rear bumper.

New 16-inch and 17-inch alloy wheel designs have been added to the range, and there are four new paint colours to choose from, too. One of those colours – Vibrant Blue – forms the bases of a new interior colour pack, with blue door panels, air vent accents and stitching to contrast against the black dashboard and upholstery.

You can choose from three trims – Advance, Premuum and Ultimate – with prices starting from £22,480.

A single petrol engine is available – a 1.0-litre T-GDi unit with 100PS, available with either a six-speed manual gerabox or a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic. The latter gets slightly more torque from the engine at 200Nm, versus 172Nm in the manual model. 

The Bayon is a rival for cars like the SEAT Arona, Volkswagen T-Cross, Ford Puma and many more.

What's different outside the 2024 Hyundai Bayon?

On the outside, the main changes are the striking new front end, with its horizontal, full-width LED light bar, together with revised grille and bumpers. The LED taillights are new, too, as are the alloy wheel designs – 16-inch units on the Advance trim and 17-inch wheels on the Advance and Premium models. 

Four new exterior paint colours are available – Vibrant Blue Pearl, Meta Blue Pearl, Lucid Lime Metallic and Lumen Grey Pearl – taking the total colour choice to nine. Premium models also have the option of two-tone paint, with a black roof and door mirrors.

What’s different inside the 2024 Hyundai Bayon?

Inside, there's a new seat upholstery pattern, an ambient lighting feature with 64 colour options, and on the top-spec Ultimate model, a glass sunroof that tilts and slides.

All models from the entry-level Advance now come with two 10.25-inch displays – one touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard to take care of infotainment duties, and another in front of the driver in place of traditional analogue dials. The infotainment system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as built-in sat-nav with live traffic information. A rear camera and parking sensors are also included.

Upgrade to the £23,880 Premium model and you'll get automatic climate control aircon, front parking sensors and a USB-C charging point in the back, as well as a heated steering wheel and front seats.

The Ultimate model (£25,280) adds a Bose sound system, wireless phone charging and keyless engine start, as well as the glass sunroof.

The updated Bayon comes with lots of safety features as standard, including Lane Follow Assist, Lane Keep Asist and Forward Collision Avoidance assist, which is what Hyundai alls its automatic emergency braking system. Premium and Ultimate models are available with a driver assistance pack for an extra £800, which includes adaptive cruise control, an upgraded Forward Collision Avoidance system and Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist.

The Hyundai Bayon comes only with a 1.0-litre petrol engine, and isn't available with a hybrid system. It promises up to 51.4mpg according to official figures. 

At 4180mm long and 1775mm wide, the Bayon is a size smaller than the Kona, which is 4355mm long and 1825mm wide. The Bayon is the same width as the i20 hatchback, although it's a fraction longer and higher.

Hyundai has an excellent reputation for reliability and featuring in the Most Reliable Car Brands list on the Honest John Satisfaction Index 2024. We've not heard anything to suggest that the Bayon is any different.
