TheCarConnection.com finds only two sources that comment on 2008 Hyundai Tiburon features and equipment, but they have a lot to say.

Automobile reports that there are four Hyundai Tiburon 2008 trims, "beginning with the inexpensive GS, which includes power windows, doors and heated mirrors, air conditioning, keyless entry, tilt steering, a 220-watt Kenwood MP3 sound system, XM Satellite Radio, fog lamps, and 16-inch alloy wheels." The Hyundai Tiburon 2008 GT offers "black leather seat bolsters with cloth inserts, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, driver's-side adjustable lumbar support, automatic climate control, trip computer, and metallic trim." The Hyundai Tiburon SE features "a suspension set up for hard cornering [and] comes with the same the 2.7-liter V6 as the GT and GT Limited."

The 2008 Hyundai Tiburon has the basics covered, but the exotic tech gear of other compact coupes hasn’t shown up yet.

Kelley Blue Book considers the Hyundai Tiburon SE the "sportiest version" and says it "has a lot of standard equipment that often costs extra on the competition, such as air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry with alarm, 17-inch alloy wheels and four airbags," adding "convenient features that are standard on the entire line include a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo with six speakers, a timed rear-window defroster, heated and powered outside mirrors, tire-pressure monitoring system, fog lights and anti-lock brakes."

2008 Hyundai Tiburon options include "Bluetooth hands-free phone system ($325), cargo net ($45), carpeted floor mats ($90), mud guards ($85), sunroof wind deflector ($85), and wheel locks ($40)," according to Automobile. Kelley Blue Book adds that the Hyundai Tiburon 2008's "optional tilt-and-slide sunroof allows in fresh air and sunshine." They say "aside from floor mats and a cargo net for the trunk, few other options are available on the SE, but little else is necessary."

The Tiburon doesn’t offer a navigation system or iPod connectivity, and it lacks the customization features of a Scion or the category-killing SYNC entertainment controller sold by Ford, which brings down its rating in this highly competitive, gadget-friendly market segment.
