If you want to buy a compact coupe type vehicle with a sporty exterior, you may want to look for a used Hyundai Tiburon for sale. Otherwise known as the Hyundai Coupe, the Tiburon was first sold in 1996 and remained in production until 2009. This model was designed to be an economical and safe vehicle that still resembles a more expensive and classy sports car from the outside. It could come with either a 2 liter DOHC 16-valve inline-four engine that runs at 138 horsepower or a 2.7 liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that runs at 172 horsepower. The standard transmission in the Hyundai Tiburon is a 6-speed manual, but there are also 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions available. This is a relatively safe model, with front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution and even a tire-pressure monitor. For additional safety, you could also have electronic stability control with brake assist and traction control in the Hyundai Tiburon. At between $17,000 and $23,000, this model is a little pricey to buy new, so it is a great idea to save money by looking for a used Hyundai Tiburon for sale. This car is a great choice for anyone who wants a safety and economy-oriented vehicle for urban driving. It has a spacey and comfortable interior, and looks like a sports car on the road. Although, it doesn't compare to the performance of some of the more expensive vehicles.
