Spy Shots: 2009 Hyundai Tiburon Coupe

Hyundai’s next generation Tiburon Coupe was recently caught undergoing the final phases of its development program before hitting the international auto show circuit next year. The new coupe is said to mimic some of the lines of the HCD8 Sports Tourer concept, which debuted at the 2004 Detroit Auto Show, but the latest images reveal some of the proportions of the current model will carry over.

The 09 Tiburon will ride on an all-new platform but the front-drive configuration is likely to stay, but with a range of more powerful four-cylinder and V6 engines. Hyundai is also rumored to be working on a new rear-wheel-drive coupe based on its upcoming Genesis sedan. Unlike the Tiburon, this new coupe would be a premium model aimed at luxury makes and is likely to feature a V8 powerplant.

Hyundai is well on its way to reaching its goal of becoming one of the top five car makes in the world. It’s no longer regarded purely as a maker of cheap and unreliable cars and is now comparable with many of its more established rivals. A recent survey has found that Hyundai’s image has improved dramatically in recent times, with the South Korean carmaker’s brand ranking improving by 32%, something that will definitely help the new Tiburon.

  4. If you look at the disguised pics here and open Hyundai’s new coupe caught uncovered link, (http://www.motorauthority.com/cars/hyundai/hyundais-new-coupe-caught-uncovered/) the disguised car has several similarities to the car near the "mousetang". If Hyundai can give the Tiburon a few more ponies under the hood to at-least compete with a GTI or the upcoming Ralliart Lancer, and undercut the price, it could make some great sales. Looking forward to more info.
