With fresh exterior styling in 2007, the 2008 Hyundai Tiburon 2+2 coupe adds an upgraded 220-watt audio system with available satellite radio. Tiburon starts off with the entry GS trim, standard with a 2.0-liter 138 hp 4-cylinder combined with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic, delivering up to 20/28 mpg city/hwy. Upgrade to the GT, SE, or luxurious GT Limited trim levels and you get a 2.7-liter 172 hp V-6 and available 6-speed manual gearbox helping achieve up to 17/24 mpg city/hwy. All trims have standard front-seat side airbags, anti-lock brakes, a tire-pressure monitoring system, and generous 10-year 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. With optional leather interior, sunroof, 6-speed manual combined with excellent safety and mpg, the Tiburon remains a sporty and fun coupe with excellent bang for the buck.Read more Read less

Sporty styling and handling; low price.
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.
