My goodness, how Hyundai has come along in the last 15 years. Just look at it. The Hyundai Tiburon is as sexy as J-Lo. Park up anywhere in a car that looks this good and in no time at all, onlookers will be admiring the sensual lines of the all new Hyundai Tiburon. The aggressive looking face of the Tiburon is nicely captured in the grilled front air dam and low profile xenon headlights. Cast your eye over the sporty low roofline, down over the curving rear haunches (told you it was like J-Lo) to the large rear spoiler and the gracefully rounded trapezoidal tail lamps at the back, and it is very obvious that this car was made to be driven. And this is what the Hyundai Tiburon does superbly. Housed under the sleek bonnet lines is the responsive 2.7 litre V6 engine that has a deep throaty sound that some super cars might find hard to replicate.
In Australia, the two spec levels (V6 and TS) come with the V6 engine that has 123 grunty kilowatts on tap at 6000 rpm. The pulling power of 245 Nm at 4000 rpm comes in useful for overtaking manoeuvres that require some get up and go. The Hyundai Tiburon is a pleasant road burner that has a comfortable ride with loads of juicy grip when driven by an enthusiast. The car has balance and poise when whisked through tight corners, and when the throttle is being pressed hard, the driving enjoyment is enhanced with the wonderful exhaust note. The engine’s torque is available at quite low engine revs, so it’s easy to drive. The six-speed close ratio gearbox inside the Hyundai Tiburon is excellent, and the clutch is smooth. A four speed automatic with electronic sequential manual mode is available for both the V6 and TS models. The impressive suspension package offering excellent ride and handling is aided by the ABS, EBD, ESP and BAS active safety features.
Sit back into the very good looking, supportive and comfortable driver’s seat of the Hyundai Tiburon and enjoy the attention to detail on offer that is spear headed with the pleasant instruments that are back-lit in a cool blue, with sharp gunmetal accents on the instrument panel. There are two cup holders, a small glove box, door pockets and a small single-chamber console between the seats for putting your bits and pieces in. The rear seats offer 29.9 inches of legroom, which isn’t bad for a two-plus-two coupe. The Hyundai Tiburon is a well equipped car with anti-lock brakes, a tyre pressure monitor, front airbags that include side airbags, and a clear 220-watt Kenwood MP3 sound system that has six speakers including tweeters. Other standard equipment in the Hyundai Tiburon includes power windows, central locking, heated mirrors, air conditioning, keyless entry, and some hot looking 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the Hyundai Tiburon TS are beautifully sculptured black leather seats and stylish blue rimmed floor mats. The Hyundai Tiburon TS model also boasts a two way electronically operated sunroof. The freshened 2007 Hyundai Tiburon is a stylish four-seat sports car that can be bought for well under that of any of its rival competitors.
Yee-haa, go and enjoy some 2+2 coupe style and fun.
