The prices of Hyundai BAYON, which has three different engine and equipment options, start from 201,900 TL. Hyundai Assan, which has been producing in Turkey since 1997, has added BAYON to the new generation i10 and i20 models that it has now taken off its bands. Thanks to BAYON, which was commissioned with an additional investment of more than 50 million Euros, with the New i10, which started to be produced at the beginning of last year, and the New i20, which went off the bands as of August, a total investment of more than 170 million Euros was completed.
It will be produced only in Turkey
Complementing Hyundai’s SUV family, the compact BAYON will be exported to more than 40 countries around the world, just from Turkey, at the Hyundai Assan Izmit Factory, which has an annual production capacity of 230,000 units.
Sangsu Kim, chairman of Hyundai Assan, said, “We completed our new i10 and i20 projects without delay last year. This year, we left behind many difficult processes and started mass production of BAYON on the exact date we planned.
Together with our BAYON production, we have completed our investment of over 170 million Euros.
This high added value car will play a key role in the future of Hyundai Assan, our sister country in Turkey. As always, we will continue to contribute to the Turkish economy and employment in the coming years.”
Engine options and volume
Murat Berkel, General Manager of Hyundai Assan, said, “We think that BAYON, which incorporates the most advantageous features of different segments, is both compatible with the Turkish family structure and will meet the expectations of young people and those who feel young.
There is already a great demand for the vehicle,” he said. The B-SUV is 4,180mm long, 1,775mm wide and 1,500mm high. BAYON has a wheelbase of 2,580 mm and offers an ideal legroom. The MPi and T-GDi turbocharged engines stand out with their fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions. In addition, 48-volt mild hybrid technology (48V) is also offered for greater fuel economy. The 48V mild hybrid technology offered at BAYON is offered with a 7DCT automatic transmission and 120 horsepower.
