If ESC is important to you, you might also check out the Sonata GLS (4-cylinder), which has a $2000 rebate on it so it really isn't much more than an Elantra. I've seen Sonatas advertised recently for under $14k.
Now that the new Elantra hatch/wagon has been unveiled, the comparison to the Rabbit is a little more direct. But I suppose if the likes of C/D can compare the Elantra sedan to the Rabbit, we can too.

agreed. Its much easier to find similiarly priced/equipped rabbits and elantras than elantras and jettas. (the gli decked out can near 30k, most people wont even pay that for a sonata. But then again there is no need to.)
Once the sportwagen comes, it'll be interesting to see how the elantra hatch stacks up too. Backy when is it coming? is there a release date?

There was a news report yesterday about early 2008 for the Elantra wagon.

When I was at the dealer this morning the person who sold me my 07 Elantra SE told me that the 2009 Elantra is going to have an optional 50 state legal turbodiesel. So, in 2009 I can choose between an Elantra or Rabbit diesel. Sweet.
