   2008 Tiburon— Key Features
Awards and Accolades

The 2007 Tiburon earned Kelley Blue Book’s “Top 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000” honors for its sporty styling and affordability.

The Yahoo! Autos Green Center ranked the 2007 Tiburon as one of the top 100 “Green” cars for 2007

"Our take? The Tiburon has always been the most interesting looking vehicle among Hyundai's lineup and its prices, which is thousands less than the competition--make it doubly so. Tuners, especially, should consider the Tiburon if they're looking for something to stand out among the numerous customized Civics on the roads and shows" -- Automotive.com --

"Deceptively quick, the new 2007 Hyundai Tiburon is a real looker, turning heads throughout its travels. It appears to be moving fast even when parked. The no frills interior is symmetrically laid out, our 2007 Hyundai Tiburon GT review elaborates, with attention to simple form, function and balance" -- Top100MuscleCarSites.com --

J.D. Power and Associates named the 2006 Tiburon the second-highest ranked vehicle in the compact sporty car segment in its annual Initial Quality (IQS) survey for new vehicle quality.

The Tiburon ranked second in the Compact Sporty Car segment in the 2006 J.D. Power and Associates Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study.
