Experts at TheCarConnection.com find that the 2009 Hyundai Entourage offers functional styling with a better-than-average interior.
Cars.com acknowledges that the Hyundai Entourage 2009 is a "nice-looking minivan—not as homely (GM) or polarizing (Nissan Quest) as some," but suggests that "if you're looking for high fashion, you're shopping in the wrong vehicle class." Automotive.com describes the Hyundai Entourage 2009 as "crisp and contemporary, perhaps a little more interesting than the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, but certainly not as unusual as the Nissan Quest." In any event, this 2009 Hyundai strikes most reviewers as being very generic in appearance; Kelley Blue Book observes that "except for details of the grille, headlamps and lower air intake up front, not much differentiates the Entourage from Kia's Sedona...both look a lot like most minivans on the road."
The Entourage's interior elicits few raves or complaints from reviewers. Cars.com is not sold on the "stripped-down [2009 Hyundai] GLS model's velour-style upholstery, which appears on the door panels in addition to the seats," suggesting that while it "gives the cabin a warmer feel than some of the new woven-cloth fabrics that are spreading throughout the market," the cloth fabrics are of a higher quality. MyRide.com reports that the 2009 Hyundai Entourage interior offers "pleasant yet functional surroundings." Kelley Blue Book states that the "fuzzy suede-like fabric in the handsome two-tone interior" gives the Hyundai Entourage 2009 "an upscale look and promises easy care," but notes that its "durability compared to other materials is uncertain."
The 2009 Hyundai Entourage is acceptable on the outside and surprisingly chic on the inside.
