The iconic Hyundai Coupe has always been a real head turner. Now it is joined in the showroom this month by a limited edition model, called the TSIII. This promises to really strain the neck muscles of passers-by with extra styling enhancements and exclusive color options.
Four paint color options of Stone Black, Rose Red, Crystal White or Carbon Grey are available. Crystal White and Rose Red have never been offered on the Coupe before and are exclusively available on the TSIII in very limited numbers.
To complement and contrast with these colors, the 17” alloy wheels have a special anthracite finish. At the rear the quad exhaust pipes deliver a sportier engine note, while a larger boot spoiler with integral brake light gives the TSIII a more purposeful look.
Inside the cabin, TSIII features quilted leather sports seats offering more support and comfort to enhance the driving experience. Matching quilted door trims complete the look. Elsewhere in the interior, chrome sill guards with a TSIII logo, metal trimmed pedals and footrest add to the sporty feel of the cabin. Air conditioning with climate control, heated front seats and cruise control all come as standard on the TSIII, along with iPod compatible stereo and metal-look finishes on the steering wheel, center console and air vents.
Hyundai is currently testing the next generation Tiburon that will go on sale in 2009 (for the US market). Supposed to take design cues from HCD8 Concept, unveiled at the 2004 Detroit Auto Show, the next generation Tiburon will move up a class and will also move to the high-$20s and even above $30K. The main competitors for the Tiburon will be the Infiniti G37 and the BMW 335i coupe.
Hyundai has launched the latest version of its much-loved Coupe. The Hyundai Coupe SIII officially goes on sale on 1st January 2007. The new Coupe SIII, so called because it is the third incarnation of the Coupe, has been completely re-designed outside as well as significant changes and enhancements inside.
Hyundai Tiburon receives a new face-lift for 2007. The automaker’s sporty coupe was first offered in its current body style for 2003. The car received updated front and rear styling for 2005, and it does again for 2007. Top-of-the-line SE models also gain an electronic stability system and upgraded brakes.
