Just got a confirmation from a dealer in New Jersey that the new Tib will weight just 2400 lbs and not 2900lbs..a cut of 500lbs!!! pure genius....
plus with still the 181 HP. Asked why 181HP? He said because the car is so light. =D

2400 lbs?

I don't think so. A 2001 Accent weights almost 2300.

The numbers in the Korean brochure are around 2800-2900 lbs.

Um, I read in Car & Driver that it will have a 171 hp 2.7L V6.

Kind of disapointing, i was hoping it would have at least 190hp. <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Cobalt Blue 2K Tib - 5 spd

That is a little harsh. You are not an idiot, just do not believe the dealerships. A few months ago the dealership told me they would <b>NEVER</b> put a V6 in the Tib. lol Guess what<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

171 bhp is what the European market will get (same as the SantaFe), not entirely sure why they decided to cut the power output by a mere 10BHP, emissions regulations maybe????

It will be 181HP not 171..so 10 more Horesepower for you ..:)

Its official, someone in t-h-c got the official 2003 US tiburon brochure.

The GT will have Infinit premium audio system, leather recaro style seats, and some other things I forgot.

Anything you want to know about the 2003 Tib, just ask me <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

I was telling Hyundai stuff about it they didn't even know at SEMA.

Hyundai says its 7.2 seconds. But I'm guessing its more towards the high 6/low 7 area.
