New Hyundai Bayon is a bit prettier

The Hyundai Bayon 2024 undergoes a slight aesthetic refresh, primarily altering the front end and introducing new interiors, along with updates to both infotainment and safety technology, three years after its initial launch.

The engine options remain unchanged. Pricing information and market debut details will be disclosed in the coming weeks.

Hyundai Bayon 2024 and the New Front End

The Hyundai Bayon 2024 introduces four new colors: Lumen Grey Pearl, Meta Blue Pearl, Lucid Lime Metallic, and Vibrant Blue Pearl (pictured). Additionally, it features new intricately designed wheels in 16 and 17-inch sizes.

The most notable change is to the front end, resembling the new Kona, especially concerning the LED daytime running lights—a single continuous bar reminiscent of the larger model’s Horizon Lamp.

HyuFurthermore, the shape and pattern of the front bumper, as well as the radiator grille, have been enhanced to impart a more bold, robust appearance, aligning it closer to the SUV aesthetic.

The rear also presents a slightly redesigned bumper, but it remains largely in line with the current version.

New Interiors

Inside, there are technological improvements, including a 4.2-inch LCD cluster with a central 10.25-inch Audio Visual touch screen as standard. Optionally, it can feature a cluster of the same size as the touch display.

There are two USB-C ports, one in the front and one in the back, while the front also features a Type-A USB port for data transfer. The premium Bose audio system is also available, offering a higher quality audio experience with eight speakers, including a subwoofer.

For Semi-Autonomous Driving

Hyundai Bayon 2024 updates its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), including:

  • Lane Following Assist (LFA) works to keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) issues an alarm and, if necessary, applies brakes to avoid a collision. This function includes detection of cars, pedestrians, and cyclists, along with Junction Turning, which can apply brakes to prevent a collision with an oncoming car during a turn at an intersection.
  • Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC) uses data from the vehicle’s navigation system to autonomously adjust speed during highway or expressway driving.
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) uses multiple sensors around the car to monitor blind spots. If another vehicle is detected, a visual alert appears on the side mirrors. When necessary, BCA acts on the differential brake to avoid a collision or reduce impact damage.
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW) analyzes driving patterns to help detect drowsy or distracted driving. This system works in tandem with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA), which notifies the driver when the vehicle ahead starts moving.

The car now also features second-generation emergency call based on the 4G network, automatically alerting emergency services if the vehicle’s airbags are deployed in the event of an accident. Alternatively, occupants can activate this function with the press of a button
