Key Hyundai Wonders: What happens to the Hyundai Tiburon?

April 3, 2009

Here at Key Hyundai, CT’s Hyundai dealer, we’ve been wondering if the Hyundai Tiburon will ever be seen again now that the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is out. We know that the Hyundai Tiburon is being discontinued with this model year. But, what does it’s future hold? We’ll we just read an article in Automotive News that clears up the mystery. Hyundai says that there will be a successor to the Hyundai Tiburon and that it will be a smaller and less expensive car. The Hyundai Tiburon will be positioned below the current Tiburon (and I assume below the Hyundai Genesis Coupe) and will be released in 2011.

According to John Krafcik, Hyundai’s CEO, “it will have a lower price point, kind of eco sport positioning, where it is not going to be all about performance.”

That sounds pretty good to us at Key Hyundai of Manchester. We are surrounded by a lot of colleges, including UCONN, Manchester Community College and Central Connecticut. The new Hyundai Tiburon sounds like it will appeal to a lot of people in that 18-25 year old age range.

We do still have a couple of brand new 2008 Hyundai Tiburons left. And, who knows, they could become collectors items (okay, a little humor doesn’t hurt).   There is a huge rebate on those cars so make sure to take advantage of it before they are gone. Visit our website to see all the current Hyundai rebates.


At Key Hyundai of Manchester, we want to help you get into a new or pre-owned Hyundai whether you are a Hyundai Hartford buyer, a Hyundai Enfield buyer, a Hyundai Meriden buyer, or anywhere in between.  And, don’t forget to check out our award winning service department.   We are proud to be Connecticut’s Hyundai dealer.
