Comfort & Quality

The 2008 Hyundai Tiburon is reasonably comfortable for front passengers, but backseaters should be tiny.

Cars.com says that "up to four people can fit inside the Hyundai Tiburon...seats are supportive, [and] legroom and elbow space are good, but headroom is meager." The Hyundai Tiburon 2008 is definitely not for the taller among us, warns ConsumerGuide: "low-slung seats tax entry and exit, plus they combine with shallow side windows for a closed-in feel...[rear seats are] unsuitable for occupants over 5-ft-6 because of the low roof and rear window, [and] entry and exit is very tight." Kelley Blue Book concurs: "you may not like this car if you need more rear seating, since legroom back there is minimal."

The 2008 Hyundai Tiburon is better at looking rich than at feeling roomy.

In-vehicle Hyundai Tiburon 2008 storage is not especially problematic, according to what TheCarConnection.com's experts have seen. Automobile reports "the hatch itself definitely enhances interior space." ConsumerGuide notes the Hyundai Tiburon's "hatchback design and split folding rear seat are practical," while "small-item storage is okay, but many rivals do better."

The Hyundai Tiburon 2008 cabin's "good-looking trim belies its pricing and includes ample soft-touch surfaces," according to ConsumerGuide; Edmunds points out that "everything is laid out in a straightforward fashion, free of gimmickry...the large speedometer and tachometer are easy to read at a glance."

The 2008 Hyundai Tiburon isn't the quietest ride, however. Automobile reports "the hatch...adds to the excessive wind and road noise that filter into the cabin," while ConsumerGuide notes "the V6 engine intrudes under full power and coarse-surface tire noise is marked, [and] wind rush is acceptable in gentle cruising, but excess buffeting discourages lowered windows even at modest speeds."
