From 2006–2009, Kia manufactured a rebadged variant of the Carnival for sister company Hyundai. Called the Hyundai Entourage, the Hyundai version was briefly cancelled in August 2005, but resurrected in October without affecting its introduction date. The production Entourage was shown at the Chicago Auto Show in February 2006 and went on sale in April 2006. While otherwise similar to the Carnival except for the name, the Entourage was only available in extended-length because of the mid-size Hyundai Veracruz crossover SUV, which measured about the same length as the short-wheelbase Carnival. Unlike the Kia Carnival, the Entourage was never a sales success, and in April 2009, the Entourage was discontinued for the 2010 model year.
In the United States, the Entourage was available for model yearse 2007-2009.
