There's a few questions for you:
- what do you want to use the car for business or personal?
- what is your driving habit/style? Mario Andretti or Granny Smith?
- how long do you want to keep the car?
- How "heavy" a guy are you?
Honestly I haven't tested the Elantra even though I considered it.
I guess to add other vehicles to your list:
Toyota Corolla [never tested it] and Nissan Sentra [tested it], and yes even a VW Golf [never tested it].
You see, my tastes are : personal use, Mario Andretti, keep for a few years, and I'm not a big guy
My choices were a little different:
-Mazda Protege ES + GT pkg.
-Hyundai Elantra GT
-Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V
-Ford Focus ZX3
-Suburu Imprezza [base model]
[think of Honda Civic sedan +]
From your list, I would definitely stick with the Elantra.
