Hyundai Motor America announced pricing today for the best minivan ever tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) -- the 2007 Hyundai Entourage(1). With its unprecedented combination of unsurpassed standard safety technology, Gold Top Safety Pick status by IIHS, outstanding interior roominess, and industry- leading quality backed by Hyundai's 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty, minivan shoppers now have a new gold standard minivan to consider.
2007 Hyundai Entourage Pricing:
* Entourage GLS -- $24,495 (freight included)(2)
* Entourage SE -- $26,995 (freight included)
* Entourage Limited -- $29,495 (freight included)
"The all-new Entourage combines roominess, comfort, power, and the industry's most effective safety technologies to take it to the front of the minivan pack," says John Krafcik, Hyundai's vice-president of product development and strategic planning. "Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey cannot match Entourage's unbeatable combination of power, interior roominess, IIHS Gold Top Safety Pick status and segment-leading standard safety technologies, like six airbags with air curtains, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and anti-whiplash active head restraints -- all for under $25,000."
Entourage is the first vehicle with the Hyundai Hideaway(TM) third-row seat, a simple-to-use 60/40 split fold-into-floor seat offering flexibility for up to seven passengers. At 202 inches long and 78.1 inches wide, the new Entourage is truly full-size. In fact, these larger dimensions and efficient packaging deliver an interior volume of 172 cubic feet -- more than Honda Odyssey.
Hyundai packed the all-new Entourage with the industry's most effective safety technologies, including ESC, anti-whiplash active front head restraints and six airbags including side air curtains, which help protect occupants in all three rows during side impacts. The Hyundai Entourage earned the IIHS's highest honor -- the gold "TOP SAFETY PICK" award because of its strong body construction and the standard application of the industry's most effective safety technologies.
Entourage GLS comes well-equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 engine, five-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission, ESC with traction control system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), 16-inch wheels, chrome-insert bodyside moldings, bodycolor power side mirrors, power windows, power door locks and remote keyless entry.

Other features include premium cloth seats, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, dual vanity mirrors, front armrest, AM/FM/CD audio system, tri-zone climate control system, a front wiper deicer and the Hyundai Hideaway(TM) third-row seat.
