New Hyundai i20 to get a crossover sibling

The Bayon 2021 was recently shown in teasers by the Korean manufacturer, Hyundai. As of now, not much is known about the Bayon. However, what we know is that in the European markets, the Bayon will sit below the Kona whose electric version we do get in the Indian market.

The new crossover is based on the recently launched i20 which has already become quite a successful car from the manufacturer. The new generation of i20 has already been able to clock over 20,000 bookings in just 20 days about which you can read more information by clicking here. The i20 uses a new platform which has helped Hyundai to develop a new crossover from the same platform.

Here we have a render of the new Hyundai Bayon which is based on the i20. The render has been prepared by the Spanish website known as Motor.es. At the front, we still get the Hyundai’s cascading grille which has now become a visual characteristic for the Korean manufacturer. From the render, we can see that Bayon uses the foglamp housing which is similar to the headlamp housing of the Venue that we get in India.

The new crossover gets split headlamp with the LED headlamp placed below and the LED Daytime Running Lamp placed on top which is being carried forward from Kona. You also get a sculpted bonnet and a faux skid plate at the front. The render has used the same diamond-cut alloy wheel design as the new generation i20. It also gets a dual-tone paint job and a floating roofline effect.

The 2021 Bayon has also been spied on the international roads with camouflage. We can see it using a different set of diamond-cut alloy wheels than the 2020 i20. So, we can assume that there would be multiple alloys to choose from. From the rear, we can see that it uses vertical LED tail lamps and some lights or reflectors have also been placed in the lower half of the bumper. From the spy shots, we can see that the crossover uses a shark-fin antenna and a high mounted stoplight. The dimensions of the Bayon also look bigger than the i20. The headlamps also look like a tweaked version of Hyundai Nexo which is sold in the international markets.

The interior also looks quite similar to the i20. However, it uses different digital dials than i20. It gets a wide similar infotainment system that should measure 10.25-inches and it will offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. We can also see the same steering wheel as the Creta and the i20. It also gets the same slim AC vents as the i20. It is highly unlikely of the Bayon to get launched in the Indian market because the i20 is already an expensive premium hatchback. Its price is already overlapping the Hyundai Venue, Verna and the Creta. So, it won’t be possible for Hyundai to place the new crossover in the Indian market with the same pricing.
