The Hyundai Bayon is too new to have featured in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, but Hyundai itself showed solid improvement in the most recent manufacturer ratings - moving up from 16th place (out of 29 brands) in 2021 to 11th position in 2022.

You do get a five-year warranty on all Hyundai models, which shows how confident the company is about its products. It remains to be seen if the Bayon is reliable but we’d make a bet that it will be.

Standard safety kit is good, and all versions of the Bayon come with autonomous emergency braking, driver attention alert, emergency call, hill start assist, pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, parking sensors and tyre pressure monitoring.

Move up to the top-spec model and you also get a blind spot warning, lane follow assist and height-adjustable seatbelts in the front. However, the Bayon received a four-star rating (out of five) from crash test body Euro NCAP, with rear-occupant chest protection rated as weak.

Warranty

Hyundai offers an excellent unlimited-mileage five-year warranty on all new cars. You also get a year’s worth of breakdown cover and an anti-rust warranty that covers the car for 12 years.

Servicing

Hyundai offers fixed-price servicing, which will likely cost around £250 for a full service (you’ll have one of these in a three-year ownership) and £150 for a smaller service (in years one and three of a new car ownership period, unless you cover over 10,000 miles a year).
