2003 Redesign Year
Hyundai Tiburon 2008
Though it's based on the pedestrian Elantra sedan, the Tiburon is fun to drive, with crisp handling, responsive steering, and lively acceleration. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine lacks refinement, however, and the shifting is a bit sloppy. As is typical for a sporty coupe the rear seat is tight and headroom is limited. The 2003 redesign brought a powerful V6 GT. The engine is smooth and refined, but not eager to rev. The base models continued with the four-cylinder. The car feels nose-heavy, and the handling is not very involving for a sporty coupe.

1997-2002
Hyundai Tiburon 2002
The Tiburon was introduced in 1997, filling a void in Hyundai's lineup created by the departure of the Scoupe two years earlier. Even though it's based on the pedestrian Elantra sedan, the Tiburon is fun to drive, with crisp handling, responsive steering, and lively acceleration. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine lacks refinement, however, and the shifting is a bit sloppy. As is typical of a small sporty coupe, the ride can be noisy and the rear seat is tight. The front seats are reasonably well shaped, but very firm and mounted low. There is little head room. For 2000, the Tiburon received freshened exterior styling and some new interior details.
