This 2009 Hyundai "has the best crash-safety ratings any minivan has yet earned," according to MyRide.com—although TheCarConnection.com's editors can't find the basis of this claim. The Entourage earns top scores and ratings from both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), as have a few other minivan models, including the Honda Odyssey.

ConsumerGuide notes that the 2009 Hyundai does have a few visibility issues: "The thick windshield pillars can impede visibility to the front corners, but there are clear sightlines elsewhere."

Automotive.com has nothing but accolades: "established life-savers that come standard on the Hyundai Entourage 2009 include electronic stability control (to control skids), and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist. Side-impact air bags inflate from the front seats for torso protection, and air curtains cover the side windows for vital head protection in a rollover or side-impact crash. Front-seat active head restraints move forward in a rear-end crash to minimize whiplash injuries." The source also notes that the Entourage offers "the same kind of safety equipment you'll find on the Odyssey and Sienna."

Conclusion

The 2009 Hyundai Entourage is designed with safety in mind, and it's a top performer.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
