2009 Hyundai Entourage Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
A sister of the Kia Sedona minivan, the Hyundai Entourage competes with similar minivans such as the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Dodge Grand Caravan. It seats seven passengers and is available in base GLS or Limited trim. It's packed with the usual features and options in this class, like folding third-row seats and dual, power-sliding rear doors. The Entourage also loads up on standard safety features, including side curtain airbags and an electronic stability system, and its crash-test ratings are tops in the minivan class.

New for 2009
The Entourage gets a more distinctive chrome grille, XM Satellite Radio becomes standard and the audio system has been updated.

Exterior
The headlights are large, the hood appears raised from the fenders and the belt line extends from the top of the fenders at the same height from front to rear, giving the vehicle a solid, uniform appearance. The Entourage measures 202 inches long, 78.1 inches wide and 71.5 inches tall. It's very close to its competitors in both length and width, but it's the tallest by a couple of inches.
  • New chrome grille
  • Chrome exterior accents on Limited models
  • Integrated roof rack and rear spoiler


Interior
Faux wood or metal-like trim finishes are available on a two-tone interior scheme. There are climate controls for both front seats, as well as for the second row. With all its seats in place, the Entourage's cargo space is 32.2 cubic feet, which is a bit smaller than its compe...

Interior
Faux wood or metal-like trim finishes are available on a two-tone interior scheme. There are climate controls for both front seats, as well as for the second row. With all its seats in place, the Entourage's cargo space is 32.2 cubic feet, which is a bit smaller than its competitors. Its overall interior volume of 172 cubic feet, however, is more than the Odyssey or Grand Caravan. The Popular Equipment Package on the GLS includes backup warning sensors, and the Rear Seat Entertainment package adds a backseat DVD video system with an 8-inch screen.

Now standard on the Entourage Limited are a rear-seat entertainment system; tilt/slide glass sunroof; power front passenger seat; power adjustable foot pedals; a memory function for the driver's seat, outside mirrors and foot pedals; and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink.
  • Optional heated leather seats
  • Standard driver's seat height adjustment
  • Third-row seats fold into the floor
  • Standard XM Satellite Radio with three months of free service
  • Updated audio system with new controls and a display that more readily displays information from iPods and other devices
  • Standard USB/iPod auxiliary inputs


Under the Hood
The Entourage's V-6 makes 250 horsepower — a healthy amount for a minivan, but the van's weight results in modest acceleration and decent but not exceptional fuel economy.
  • 250-hp, 3.8-liter V-6 with 253 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual mode
  • Towing capacity of 1,000 pounds


Safety
The Entourage boasts the top ratings of any minivan in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, with Good scores in rear- as well as front- and side-impact tests.

Standard features include:
  • Electronic stability system
  • Antilock brakes
  • Seat-mounted side-impact airbags
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Active front head restraints
  • Three-point seat belts and adjustable head restraints for all seats

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
