Model Highlights

Hyundai's small, front-wheel drive sport coupe still comes in three trim levels: the affordable Tiburon GS, touring-oriented GT and GT Limited, and performance-oriented SE.

The GS comes with a 138-horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder engine, while the GT and SE come with a 172-horsepower 2.7L V6. GS and GT models are available with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, while the Limited is only available with the automatic and the SE models are offered only with a six-speed manual.

All Tiburon models come with electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD). Front seat-mounted side air bags are also standard on all Tiburons. SE models upgrade to big 12-inch front rotors and brake assist for the ABS.

The performance-oriented SE model has a significantly stiffer suspension than other Tiburons. The independent rear setup and stabilizer bars front and back provide sharp, precise handling on curvy roads.

Even the base GS model comes equipped quite well, with standard features including keyless entry, air conditioning, and a 220-watt Kenwood CD audio system that comes with a three-month XM satellite radio subscription. The touring-oriented GT model adds leather upholstery and trim, an improved gauge cluster, cruise control, and automatic climate control. The GT Limited adds flamboyant red leather seats, special interior trim, and a 440-watt, MP3-compatible sound system with a six-disc CD changer. GS models get 16-inch wheels and tires while GT, GT Limited, and SE models all get larger and wider 17-inch wheels and rubber.


Model News

For the 2008 Hyundai Tiburon, the Limited model is no longer available with manual transmission, and Bluetooth is optional across the model line. A three-month XM satellite radio subscription now comes with the standard Kenwood audio system this year.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Hyundai Tiburon sport coupe has attention-getting wedge-shaped styling, along with handling that's competitive with other front-wheel drive coupes. Price also remains one of the Tiburon's strongest selling points, as it comes in at several thousand less than most of its competitors, and has side air bags standard.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
