Edmunds' Expert Review

Though affordable, the 2007 Hyundai Tiburon's age, lack of power and handling finesse put it near the bottom of our list.

vehicle overview

In recent years, Hyundai has mastered the art of giving people more than they've paid for, delivering vehicles whose generous warranties and standard features lists belie their ultralow price tags. The 2007 Hyundai Tiburon reflects the manufacturer's effort to translate this approach to the sport coupe segment.

Appearance counts for a lot in the sport-coupe world, and the Hyundai Tiburon has the sort of sharp lines that make a car stand apart from the pack. In profile, it's especially eye-catching, with a rising beltline, scooped outside detail and sweeping roof line. The Tiburon's upscale look is topped off with side sculpting and slick alloy wheels shod with performance tires.

Although the Tiburon is a sport coupe, its suspension tuning is on the soft side, resulting in compromises with regard to handling. This is something driving enthusiasts will notice in back-to-back test-drives with the Tiburon's competition. Still, the handling is competent enough for most folks, and the Tiburon offers a forgiving ride for those who value comfort over performance.

A more serious problem is engine power, as even the Tiburon's V6 is now outclassed by the four-cylinders of many competitors. Given these weaknesses and the car's aging design, we think shoppers would be better served by a variety of other choices, including the Chevrolet Cobalt SS, Ford Mustang V6, Honda Civic Si or Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Trim levels & features

The 2007 Hyundai Tiburon coupe is available in GS, GT, GT Limited and SE trims. Standard equipment for the GS includes a tire-pressure monitoring system, air-conditioning, a six-speaker stereo with CD player, remote keyless entry, full power accessories, foglamps, 16-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. The GT adds automatic climate control, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth/leather seats, chrome interior accents, a trip computer and 17-inch wheels. The GT Limited includes red leather upholstery, a power sunroof and a 440-watt Infinity audio system. The SE adds a sport-tuned suspension, a high-mounted rear spoiler, aluminum pedals, manual air-conditioning, a Kenwood CD/MP3 audio system, cross-drilled brake rotors with red calipers and a six-speed manual transmission.

2007 Highlights

The Tiburon puts on a somewhat new face for 2007 with revamped front and rear fascias, headlights, taillights, hood, front fenders and exhaust tips. The cabin has been spiffed up with blue backlit gauges and chrome accents and MP3 capability, and a tire-pressure monitoring system is now standard. SE models get standard stability control, traction control, larger and cross-drilled brake rotors, a track-tuned suspension and a full-size spare.

Performance & mpg

The GS comes with a 138-horsepower, 2.0-liter inline-4. Step up to the GT, SE or GT Limited, and you'll get a 2.7-liter V6 rated at 172 hp and 181 pound-feet of torque. Although smooth, the V6 is considerably down on power for this segment. The GS, GT and GT Limited are available with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, while the SE can only be had with a six-speed manual.

Safety

All Tiburons come standard with side airbags for front occupants, a tire-pressure monitor and antilock brakes. Traction control and electronic stability control are standard on the SE, but aren't available on other models. In NHTSA crash tests, the 2007 Hyundai Tiburon earned a full five stars for driver protection in frontal impacts and four stars for the front passenger. Side-impact testing found the Tiburon earning a four-star rating.

Driving

The four-cylinder engine provides barely adequate power for this 3,000-pound coupe, so upgrading to the V6-powered GT, GT Limited or SE is strongly encouraged. When the Tiburon is driven hard, it lacks the athleticism of its more nimble competitors. The SE offers a sport-tuned suspension for more responsive handling and a tauter ride, but even that Tiburon is not as light on its feet as the class leaders. The Tiburon's V6 is confident but not eager and its steering is a bit slow and numb. However, when driven in a relaxed manner, this Hyundai performs capably and delivers a smooth ride.

Interior

The 2007 Hyundai Tiburon has a simple but handsome cockpit. At first glance, it's evident that the interior designers wanted to impart a high-quality look and feel to the cabin. Everything is laid out in a straightforward fashion, free of gimmickry. Fiddle with the climate control knobs and the silky fluidity with which they move would do a Honda proud. Bolstered sport seats help keep occupants in place during enthusiastic cornering, and the large speedometer and tachometer are easy to read at a glance.

My 2007 Hyundai Tiburon GT Limited
Nick E.,04/09/2016
I bought my Tiburon with 73,500 miles on it with an after market exhaust. Today it has around 133000 miles on it and just installed a K&N cold air intake. I drive it around town and mostly on the highway between school and my home town. Topped it on the highway around 150 mph. 0-60 is roughly 8s. Good: The sound of the engine when accelerating. Looks. Many options for customization. Car isn't heavy. still attracts attention. Bad: Paint has started to peal. replaced the Gt wing with a color matched Se wing, and repainted the side mirrors. lately noticed little spots on the right side, but at this moment can not be seen unless looking for it. Sunroof is having faults opening and closing. Not enough acceleration. Fuel consumption could be better. I'm 6'6" tall, the seats are reclined back and moved in the most aft position. Lumbar is just about useless, causing my back to hurt on long drives. Really wish it was a manual. My advice for new owners: Value of the car will drop sharply. Great car for high school and college students.

I have owned my 07 Tiburon for over a year and I have not had a single problem with it in any way. This car is compact, and fun to drive. People will turn their head when they see you drive by. I have had compliments from other drivers while at the red light. The exterior gives a very sporty and pricey look. The interior is very sharp and modern looking. The vehicle is built very strong which is noticeable when you get in and close the door. Friends will want a ride with you all of the time. My friend say in the drivers seat, turned on the car and said "wow". The engine sounds great for a 4 cyl. and acceleration is impressive. I recommend this car mostly for reliability and looks.
07 Tiburon GS
phoenix15,04/18/2014
This car caught my attention at the time when they first came out. My was a dark navy blue color which is what caught my attention and the body style. Had it for over 7 years now with less than 60K mileage on it. After about 40k mileage I started to notice that the clutch is performing really bad like its not responding when shifting. So I did a little research and found out that the manufacture had put in a clutch delay thing inside the master cylinder to prevent clutch overheating if you drive aggressively. So I just remove that clutch delay thing and now it's responding a little better without that lag.
Standing the test of time
shanc25,01/24/2015
My 2007 Tiburon GT, automatic, is up to nearly 129,000 miles so far and the only issue I've had to this point is to replace a faulty fuel sensor. That's it. Most reliable car I've ever owned and I hope it keeps going strong for a while longer, because I'm still in love with the way the car looks and how it drives. Gorgeous machine and it's proven to have longevity to boot. Wonderful for a single person (who's under 6'0" tall - that's important with the shallow headroom here). UPDATE: Now 160,000 miles. Only unexpected issues in past 30K miles have been replacing rear sway bar and a couple TPMS sensors. Not bad considering age/mileage.

Should I lease or buy a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
