The Hyundai Tuscani is a compact coupe manufactured and marketed by the South Korean car manufacturer for the South Korean market from 2001 to 2009.

History of the Hyundai Tuscani

After five years of production, Hyundai discontinued the first-generation Tiburon. For the 2003 model year, Hyundai introduced a restyled Tiburon with a bigger body and a V6 engine as an option. Some European and Middle Eastern markets refer to the vehicle as the Hyundai Coupe. The vehicle is offered and labeled as a Tuscani in several countries. In South Korea, for example. On the left and right sides of a gold and silver letter 'T,' the Tuscani wear a round logo with a smaller group of black and grey horizontal bars atop. The Tuscani is a famous nameplate even in regions where the automobile is marketed as a Hyundai Tiburon or Hyundai Coupe. Aftermarket modifications have allowed several vehicles to be rebadged with Tuscani decals. A "Tuscani edition" of the Tiburon is available in Canada. Hyundai was rumored to be considering creating a Tuscani sub-brand to cater to more affluent, sportier, and high-end buyers. Greater sales are most probable in markets where the Hyundai brand is more closely associated with lower-priced products.


If you're an interested buyer of a used Hyundai Tuscani, you must prepare at least $7,000 to buy one of the cheapest used Tuscani vehicles.

Features of the Hyundai Tuscani

Hyundai made consistent changes to the front of the vehicle. The lower bumper region's smoked headlamps and the trapezoidal grille exhibited strong style. The carmaker positioned several pods of fog lights on the outside edges of the apron. Rather than three vertical slats, the manufacturer opted for two horizontal slats in the area behind the front wheels. As if that wasn't enough for Hyundai, the automaker also redesigned the tailgates to include larger reversing lights. An optional tiny trunk wing might be fitted to the car based on engine choice. The automaker has updated the center stack with intuitive controls for the climate-control module within the vehicle. Hyundai retained the three gauges above the audio system as part of their sporty-oriented car. The high-bolstered seats of the 2001 model were well-received, so they retained them. However, like in the past, the back seats were only fit for legless dwarves.
