Ok I don't know if my eyes are serving me right.

According to Hyundai the 'current' 2001 Tiburon weighs in at 2633 lbs.

According to Hyundai the 'future' 2003 Tiburon I4 weighs in at 2633 lbs.

IS THIS RIGHT???? New materials or something are being used to lessen weight since I know the previous Tiburon was smaller etc so more aluminum in the 2003??

That would also throw the numbers that the Europeans have off since they were saying it does the 0-60 in 9.1 in the manual. The time would be exactly like before if not better (revised 5-speed manual) so 8.4ish.

Making it as fast as what they had claimed on the 6-speed V6. So that means that number has to be off too.

See where I am going with this?

I highly doubt that such a radical change in body style will result in an equal weight to it's predecessor. Even if it has the same 2.0L Beta.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Odds are that it is a mistake...

Hi. I heard there's 100kg difference between the two. There was change of the gear ratios to I4 engines. As far as I am hearing, I4s are slower in start than the 01 models. (it could be 100lb or kg. I can't exactly remember the units.. but I think kg was right.) Hope that helped =)

Whenever car data companies don't have the information they need, they automatically put in the last known figures...which is why they have last year's numbers. Also the 2000/2001 Tibs actually weighed 2586 lbs., but that 2633 number floats around in alot of documentation.
