Hyundai's introduction of the Tiburon signified the brand's desire to diversify its line; to make more than just another cheap and uninspired compact. The Scoupe never did all that well, and Hyundai needed a re-fresh. This boasted a new sporty design, low curb weight, and capable engine providing the driver with an inexpensive, fun hatchback. The second generation wasn't a hatchback this time, but rather more of a fastback/coupe. It included an even larger engine (as optional equipment) and more standard options, but thanks to the Hyundai Tiburon parts that made up the suspension and chassis, it still stayed extremely light - around 3,000-lbs. Unfortunately, it was discontinued in 2001 and replaced with the Genesis.
