2007 Hyundai Tiburon

The facelifted 2007 Hyundai Tiburon debuted at the 2006 Paris Auto Show. Hyundai‘s entry level sports coupe has wooed almost a quarter million buyers worldwide with its great looks, and like the previous generation, this coupe looks champagne expensive with a beer-bottle price tag.

Exterior changes are limited to new lighting, wheels, side trim, and new front and rear fascias designed to give the Tiburon an even sportier look. The interior also received a slight facelift with revised HVAC vents and a new center stack with blue LED lighting.

Hyundai wisely left the technical bits alone, investing instead on further improving the styling, which is what has always made the Tiburon move off the showroom floor. We think the Tiburon (which is called simply the “Hyundai Coupe” in Europe) would continue to find buyers if it were powered by a hamster under the hood, simply because it looks like it should cost twice as much as it does.
