The 2007 Tiburon is defined by its dynamic and aggressive styling. Starting with classic coupe proportions, Hyundai’s designers added a new hood with muscular character lines, projector headlights and an aggressive front valance panel.

The 2007 Tiburon includes a wide range of both active and passive safety features. All Tiburon models feature standard four-channel ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) to optimize brake performance under various dynamic loading conditions. Tiburon has strong unibody construction, along with front and rear crumple zones, body-side reinforcements, and five- mph energy-absorbing bumpers. The hood also includes buckling creases and safety stops. For 2007, the Tiburon SE gets Electronic Stability Control (ESC), one of the industry’s most effective life-saving technologies, as standard equipment.

Inside the Tiburon, you’ll find driver and front passenger advanced frontal airbags, along with front seat-mounted side airbags. The front seatbelts have pretensioners and force limiters, and the outboard rear positions feature LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children), which make affixing child safety seats easier.
