I was comparing the driver's seat of the 2001-2006 Elantra, which had an 8-way seat with dual height adjusters and lumbar support, to that on the 2007-8 Elantra, which has a single height adjuster and no lumbar adjustment. I like the seat on the old Elantra better. But the new Elantra SE has a telescopic wheel, which makes up somewhat for fewer seat adjustments. And the 2008 SE has ESC standard, which is really great.
#30 of 515 2008 Hyundai Elantra Pricing
Oct 19, 2007 (9:37 am)
I m from Toronto ON Canada.
I m relatively new to this forum. Right now i m looking to buy new car and after reading all forums and based on my requirement I narrow down to Elantra / Mextix or Vibe
All 3 have some advantages over other. Elantra wins over price and features as well as interior.
I need advise on choosing model and year. I m looking to have Auto + Power everything + 4 disk break + ABS
I have also seen used car listing for 2007 model, If i get everything in one year old car can i consider buying it? here it makes almost $4K-5K difference.

If driving a car that got a "Poor" score on the IIHS side crash test is not an issue for you, you should look at the 2004-2006 Elantra with ABS. The ABS cars from that era had 4 wheel discs also. ABS can be a little hard to find, however. But if you are looking for the 5-door, the GT models (available in Canada?) were typically more loaded than the GLS and might have ABS (my 2004 GT does). Another plus is that the 2001-2006 Elantras with ABS also have traction control--that is not available for 2007 and available only for 2008 on cars with ESC.
Obviously, it's much easier to find a 2007-8 with ABS since it's standard (or is it, in Canada?). Going for a slightly used 2007 might be the way to go; they are almost identical to the 2008s except the 2008 SE has ESC with traction control standard (here in the U.S. anyway).

the 04-06 models with a sunroof will have ABS (it was packaged together).

Yes, for 05-06 at least. Not sure about 04--I think ABS was still available separately then? What about in Canada--aren't the trims different there?
#34 of 515 Door courtesy reflectors?

I see the 2007 and 2008 specs mention "door courtesy reflectors". I don't recall seeing anything that sounds like that on the Elantras I looked at at the dealer. What are these?

We have a 2004 elantra GT (5-speed) and could only get ABS if we took the sunroof, which we did.

I am really looking forward to getting one of these. Does anyone know when these will hit the dealer. All I can find are GLS.

The thread I started was in reference to the 08 SE. There was no reason to move it.
