there really isn't a difference. it's just a different name. tuscani is the name from korea, coupe is from europe and tiburon is US

aright. thanks guys. youre reall helpful.

now seriously.

what is the real difference.
Well..I was being serious...its just like how they call 240sx's, silvias in japan (I mayb be wrong, best example i could think of), Im almost positive there is no performance difference, just random knick nacks like the badges and heated seats and so on

there are a few misc. things like the passenger side cup holder and idk even know what else that just comes to mind canada does have an actual tuscani trim which is a fully loaded tiburon and is sold with tuscani badging.

Well the H's or T's have two holes behind them, not worth the effort to fill those and make it look clean imho, but the actual words come off quite easily

If it was originally sold in the US it is not a tuscani, its that easy


BUT proper kdm would be passenger side cup holder, heated seats, tcs, hands free, auto folding mirrors ... if its an 03-04 im not sure if the kdm chrome headlights where standard or just an option ... theres a few small things like that, but basically its not in the US, and if it was originally sold new in canada, then it must be a V6 6sp and they called it a tuscani

"tuscani" is just an alternate badging found in Korea and in 03/04 special tuscani edition models in canada.
thats all it is. an alternate name and a better looking badge.

More or less, they started in 04 and went to 06 up here. All the Tuscani had over the regular badged Tiburon was some extra options like 3 little gauges under the stereo, cup holder under the passenger vent, door sills, heated/leather seats etc etc.

ABS was available on all, TCS was also part of the options list.
