I was looking up the korean prices on the Tuscani and I noticed there's about a $6,000 difference in pricing between the GTS and the Elisa V6. I didn't do the GT pricing since I highly doubt they'll bring over the 130 hp Tuscani. And this is converted to US currency.. If the I4 is suppose to be around the pricing of the current tiburon and they do have about a $6,000 difference in between the V6 and the I4, then the price for the Elisa V6 would be around $21,000.. And I recall looking at the 2001 Tiburon/Turbulence prices on the Korean Hyudai website. The price difference between the base 2001 Tiburon and the top was about $3,000 if I recall correctly. Which is about how it is here in the states. Sure if you convert the prices of the korean spec GTS to US dollars it would be around $11,835 and the Elisa would be about $17,385. But the 2001 korean Tiburon's price was around the GTS price so they won't bring over the GTS for 12 grand. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> The way I figured this out is that "1,271.89 won = 1 US dollar" My numbers aren't exactly on since I rounded the numbers a bit but all it takes is simple math. I'm probably wrong but oh well. We'll have to wait and see once they announce the 2003 Tiburon prices.

There is sooooo much more to take into consideration when it comes to pricing a car such as shipping and imort taxes which will raise the price of the car.

Also you have to take into consideration things such as what the American public will pay for a car. Maybe the make a higher profit on cars in Korea cause they can (I dunno).

But the price of the Tib V6 fairly loaded up should be right around $20,000. The price of my 2000 Tib was $16,500 before discounts and that had pretty much everthing except leather. So we are looking at a difference of $3,000 to $4000 which is a pretty standard price increase from a 4cyl to a V6.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
