Hyundai’s facelifted Tiburon V6 coupe gains a revised interior and exterior, extra safety and comfort features and slicker suspension.

Offering a new front end comprising a new-look bonnet, blistered quad headlights and a new bumper with wide lower grille housing two outboard foglight pods.

There is also a high-rise rear wing with integrated LED tail-lights, new chromed dual exhausts, a new rear bumper, an extended side crease that eyebrows new front side vent motifs, more subtle badging and different 17-inch alloys.

Furthermore, electronic stability control and front side thorax airbags are added to the sportscar’s standard safety kit.

Inside, there is now fully automatic climate-control air-conditioning with an Air Quality System (AQS), along with an iPod/MP3-compatible audio system and new cool blue instruments. Other cabin features include new light-grey roof lining, new brushed alloy highlights, red leather side bolsters for the black fabric-clad seats and a number of other detail upgrades.

In line with the current Tiburon, the model range commences with a base Tiburon and is followed by a limited-edition TS variant with Vivid Blue medium metallic paint, a sunroof, black leather trim, TS badging and special carpet mats.

The 1388kg Tiburon continues to be powered by Hyundai’s 2.7-litre "Delta" all-alloy DOHC V6, which now offers 4kW less power (123kW) and the same 245Nm of torque. Official claimed fuel consumption is unchanged at 9.5L/100km for the auto and 9.7L/100km for the manual.
