Review

The Hyundai Bayon doesn’t offer the high-up driving position of many small SUVs, which is likely to put some buyers off. It’s comfortable, well equipped and roomy in the back, though

Our favourite trim. As well as all the kit that comes with entry-level SE Connect trim, you also get an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, rain-sensing wipers, automatic climate control and heated front seats. The touchscreen also grows to 10.25in and the alloys grow to 17in,

We haven’t tried this entry-level engine in the Bayon, although a 0-62mph time of 10.7 seconds suggests it’ll be up to the job. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, although you can have an automatic if you prefer.
