#147 of 459 Re: All-New 2007 Hyundai Entourage Earns IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Award [larry1
Apr 21, 2006 (10:22 am)
Here is something cool... I had a 2003 Kia Sedona minivan and in November I got asked to do a 6 hours market research test. I got to test drive 4 new minivans that were to be put on the market by various manufactures in 2007. All the minivans were masked off so that you couldn't tell what manufacturer they were. I figured out most of them by the body styling and they way that they handled. Of the four vehicles that I drove, and scored for performance, style, sportiness, appearance of exterior, interior, price, value, options, warranties, economy and safety, the Entourage was my clear choice. I literally fell in love with this vehicle. Two months ago my husband found a great deal on a 2005 Sedona EX (we had an '03 LX we payed $12,900 for new) and traded ours in getting a $29,000 van for just over $16,000 because they had to get rid of the 05's. I really want an Entourage when they come out, but I may have to wait a few years because of the recent trade in, but I will encourage everyone I know to test drive the Entourage when it is released

Does anyone know why the Entourage tops out at over $33k, while the Sedona with the same options is over $2k less? Everything I've read here indicates that they are identical, except for front and rear cosmetics and the option of faux metallic trim instead of faux wood trim. I'm hoping the Entourage has some features included that the Sedona does not?

I know on the Limited trim of the Entourage, heated seats and HomeLink are included, maybe other features...(maybe also the Hyundai Hideaway (TM) j/k )
Specific pricing with options came out?? I've only seen the press release with the starting base price for each trim. But, 33k loaded makes sense in this class...
Just visited hyundaiusa.com, and the banner at the bottom of the page says the 2007 Entourage is available NOW

Thanks. Yes, kbb has the options and pricing up, and a local dealer said they should be here very soon. As for those options, the loaded Sedona also has heated seats and homelink, so I'm still hoping the Entourage has something else to offer or differentiate it for $2k more, otherwise the choice will be easy.

I saw 2 Entourages on my way to work this morning. They're on the Beaverton Hyundai lot here in Beaverton Oregon.

I think to some degree you are paying for the Hyundai name.

You are probably right. I expected that, just to a much, much lesser degree.
