Mild hybrids with double-declutching function among the engines

There is no diesel for the Bayon, instead you can go out four gasoline engines choose. The entry point is a 1.2-liter four-cylinder 84 hp and manual five-speed gearbox. The more powerful engines have three cylinders and one liter displacement. There is an aggregate here with 100 hpthat it is also optionally available as a mild hybrid with 48-volt technology. The most powerful engine always comes with this technology and performs 120 hp. While the pure combustion engine is always shifted manually over six gears, with the mild hybrids there is a choice between a seven-speed automatic or an intelligent six-speed gearshift. The latter decouples the engine in certain situations and goes into a fuel-saving sailing mode when the driver takes his foot off the accelerator pedal. Both transmission variants come with the double-declutching function from the sports models i20 N and i30 N, which ensures faster gear changes. As you’d expect, Hyundai doesn’t offer all-wheel drive for the Bayon. There is also no variant with a purely electric drive.
