2004 models now on Canadian website
So the new models and pricing are on the Canadian website. I think Hyundai blew it on this one. The price on the V6 6 spd. is up $2,000 and the 5 speed is up over $1,000 without any real changes that I can see (didn't look too close though).
I am thinking about buying a new car next summer. Given these price increases, I will probably not even consider a Tib and just look at the Mazda3 or a Mazda6 with the 2.3L. I love the Tib, but does Hyundai honestly believe they are going to compete with a SRT-4 or Mazdaspeed Protege with the existing 2.7L engine at that price? Hell, a Mazda3 with the 2.3L makes almost as much power and is $6,000 less. You could turbo the car for the difference and be making some real power.
Anyways, I am quite disappointed with the price increases given there isn't any real performance improvements on the new model.
