View Full Version : Tiburon refresh

01-12-2005, 01:37 PM

Hyundai has redesigned the car that's come to represent its fresh new face to the world. The Coupe gains new looks inside and out, keeping it fresh ahead of the arrival of the spectacular CCS open-top version next year.

Key mid-life changes include:
New headlamps and air intake
Side 'shark gills' and new door mirrors
Restyled rear light clusters
New range of 17-inch alloys

On the inside, you get:
New lighter-coloured headlining
Redesigned overhead console
Extra chrome

The 1.6 S model, meanwhile, also gains leather garnish for its cloth-trimmed interior.

Until the end of March, 1.6 S buyers aged between 25 and 65 also benefit from a year's free insurance for themselves and two other named drivers.

I've always liked the new style of the Tiburon, I just wished they would make it RWD (that would make it one of my possibles). Hyundai has really become a different company from what they were a few years back.

It's a refresh, not the next generation.

I like the revamp, looks good.

Hyundai always does a mild refresh to their models a couple of years into the design. I guess the idea is to keep things fresh and interesting until their new, redesigned model comes out (every 4-5 years or so).

Not bad. Saving a year's insurance is a pretty sweet perk as well if you fall into the age range....

the interior looks pretty great.

Shit! I've seen so many of those over the past 5 months...then again, I am in Korea!! hahaha But yah, I don't mind those at all...they're starting to grow on me. I think I'll get one when I get back! haha yah right! I'll snap some pics of some nicely done up ones. Only thing, I see a lot of the older ones labelled as Tibourons, but these ones have a big "T" where the Hyundai's "H" should be and it says Tuscani and then DOHC. :dunno:

Those are a special edition Tiburon Tuscani. I am sure if you searched for it, you would find out what the difference is. I think they only came in Yellow and White or something. Then engine was the same if I recall correctly.
