Tiburon is a sharp-looking small coupe geared for more enthusiastic driving than most Hyundai products. GS versions of the FWD come with a 138hp 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. GT and SE versions include a 172hp 2.7L V6 which is almost unheard of in this size and class of vehicle. The SE pairs the V6 with a 6-speed manual which is also unique in the class. Unfortunately both engines are a bit underpowered compared to other small coupes. The Tiburon is a unique vehicle but a bit overpriced when compared to other offerings like the Civic Si/EX, Cobalt, and Scion TC. The Tiburon is due to be updated in 2007.
