It is believed that the the Tiburon’s replacement is only months away from popping out, so the car should be presented at the Los Angeles Motor Show on December 2, at the Detroit Show on January 11 or the Geneva Show on March 2.
Everything is based on Hyundai’s Australia sales and marketing chief Kevin McCann confirmation that a new model based on the Veloster would eventually replace the Tiburon, which is now out of production.
“The Tiburon is gone, but it’s a hole that will definitely be filled – and the magic word is Veloster,” said Mr McCann.
“I don’t know what final form, it will take, but I expect that if you look at the trends in Europe that kind of swoopy, low-slung hatchback is very appealing to the generational equivalent of people why bought two-door coupes."
“I suppose it’s an affluent Gen Y car, if you like, so it’s only my opinion but I think that’s the way it’ll go.”
In some countries like Australia for example, visiting a Hyundai dealership can still get you a brand new Tiburon, as the car is still in stock.
