Are there books or article that develop (or sketch the main points) of Euclidean geometry without fudging the hard parts such as angle measure, but might at times use coordinates, calculus or other means so as to maintain rigor or avoid the detail involved in Hilbert-type axiomatizations?

I am aware of Hilbert's foundations and the book by Moise. I was wondering if there is anything more modern that tries to stay (mostly) in the tradition of synthetic geometry.

You might look at Hartshorne's Geometry: Euclid and Beyond.
