TheCarConnection.com's experts note little commentary on 2008 Hyundai Tiburon safety figures, but it does well in government crash tests.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the Tiburon for 2008 five out of five stars in front impact crash tests and a respectable four out of five stars in side impact protection and rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which has much more stringent standards, did not perform any Hyundai Tiburon 2008 crash tests, however.

Automobile notes that 2008 Hyundai Tiburon standard safety equipment "includes front airbags, front side-impact airbags, seatbelt pretensioners and force limiters, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and a tire pressure monitor." Optional Hyundai Tiburon safety equipment includes "Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Brake Assist and Traction Control."

The Hyundai Tiburon has a few visibility issues; ConsumerGuide reports that in the Hyundai Tiburon 2008 "rear visibility is hampered by the sloping roofline." Kelley Blue Book defends the 2008 Hyundai Tiburon, however; this source finds that the Hyundai Tiburon 2008's "visibility is substantial despite the rear spoiler that divides the view through the large hatchback window."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
