IT would be too heavy in the front and hard to handle (the Tiburon). A lot of body roll is what will happen. Not to mention the torque the XG350 has <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

If they pulled less torque and more hp out of that engine though for the Tiburon. I think it would keep up/smoke a Mustang GT??<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

i don't want to diss hyundai, but the V6 engines in many competitors have larger horse/torque outputs. nissan has a na 3.5 rated at 255 hp, the accord makes 200 hp with 3.0 L, and i don't even need to mention the mighty BMW engines. i know that some of these cars are much more expensive than an XG, but i think that hyundai can still ante up and put some more juice into their engines (especially when you consider that many 4 cylinder engines now push the envelope).

I tend to agree! I think you'll see more powerful engines down the road in order to compete with competition. When our XG is fully loaded with people, let me tell you that it could use another 50 horses and torque to pass other cars!!!!! We still love the car though!! I encourage people to take these cars for a test drive, they are a beautiful machine to drive!! Just my 2 cents!

my bad, i had suggested that the BMW engines are V6, when in truth, everyone knows that they're inline 6. but the point remains the same.

i must add.... the above cars mentioned all run on premium 91 or better gas..

xg and other hyundai's run on 87 regular...

if the factory did some ecu tuning with premium gas and stuff... i think it'll be very close to the competitors hp figures.
