More power and more features are added this year to the 2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT, along with revised head and taillights, new mirrors, sleeker foglights, a more subtle grille, and an indented horizontal line along both sides. Powered by a 2.7-liter, 172-hp DOHC V6 with 181 lb-ft of low-end torque, the front-wheel drive sports coupe rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and a fully independent suspension. Dual front-side airbags are standard, and 4-wheel ABS is offered on the 2006 Tiburon GT, unlike the base model. The stronger engine means less gas mileage, and the coupe is rated at 19/26 mpg.
Upgrading from the GS, the 2005 Tiburon GT adds cruise control, automatic climate control, and leather wheel and shifter trim. Other standard features include power windows, locks, and mirrors, heated mirrors, a security system, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, keyless entry, CD player, and dual exhaust. A larger rear spoiler decorates the back deck. A sunroof is available on the GT, and you can also get sporty leather seats. Drivers mention the poor fuel economy, some rear blind spots, and the lack of leg and headroom as negatives for the 2005 Tiburon GT. But the fun driving experience, good V6 power, responsive handling, and surprising 14.7 cubic foot trunk space all at an affordable price keeps owners happy.
