<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle> That car would be fine if it was coming from another manufacturer, but they've taken the Tib and made it into a whack-ass ripoff of the RSX with some Cougar thrown in and then a little Eclipse. The best thing about the Tiburon was how ORIGINAL it's styling was. Now it just looks like a Mercury/Mitsubishi/Acura clone.

Well all I can say is that it looks tons better than the current one. Why Hyundai had to mess around with the styling in 2000 I don't know - those twin headlamps - eughhhh!!!!

I agree with Pony. I like the new Tiburon much better then the previous one. Don't get me wrong, I like the current Tiburon but I do not care for the headlight design. Not my cup of tea! The rest of the car is fine though. Now, for the 2002 Tiburon, I think its very well designed. Yes, there is a resemblence between that and the RSX on a profile view. The RSX is a great looking car, and so is the new Tib. Big deal if they copied it a bit. Both cars are nice. Better then having a butt ugly car. But an Eclipse? Hell no!

I seriously don't see the resemblances everybody keeps bringing up. You say it looks like an Eclipse, how? You say it looks like an RSX from the side, big deal, that's one of the best shapes for a sports car of that size. Do you honestly think Hyundai was able to see the RSX when it and the GK were both being designed up to 2 years ago? Give me a break! As far as ripping off the cougar, so the headlights are the same style. Did the XG rip off the cougar? It has the same style lights, how about the RSX? Or how about all the new Infiniti's with that same style light.

There's only so many things you can do to a car to make it different. That's what Hyundai has done.

The 2000-2001 model is the best one so far and the new Tuscani looks just to plain and I rather like the headlights on my car I'm tired of the plain cluster look.

I think the 2001 Tiburon design was originial. The first I saw it I was like Oooh NICE CAR! It truly stands out. But the 2002's design looks plain......... It's UGLY in my opinion.........<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>

Me thinks the new tib is real nice! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> Honestly, I think they used a perfect combination of Mustang and Monte Carlo (if you look close at the front end) and Tiburon styling. They threw in more lines and a little less curve like ALL mfg's are doing. But, if you look at this pic, it still looks like a tiburon. I for one, LOVE it.

The exterior is nice, but I wish it was more original. The interior looks awesome with those Recaro seats and the steering wheel and shifter even look cool.
