Production is scheduled to end for Job 2 2012 models at the end of the week with Job 1 2013 scheduled for Monday the 23rd. The only thing is I haven't seen a canadian specific order guide so I don't know what the specific differences will be. The SEL is to be eliminated here, as well as the auto dimming rear view mirror and several other features/ colors/ etc.
Despite alloys being made standard on the SE you give up fog lamps and have to get the se premium package (not sure the exact name) for $2000 more with leather and 17" wheels in order to get rear disk brakes, and the dual zone climate control requires MFT where as in 2012 it was standard on an SEL without it. The SE now costs well over the former base or mid range SEL, and approaches Ti territory. Cloth seats are also unavailable on the 2013 Ti, as the base spec Ti starts off with the loaded SE, where as in 2012 at least you could have gotten cloth seats, which is nice since they were only available in black without a seat chiller.
Used/sitting on a lot 2012 here I come.
I'm working with my dealer to see if they can get a similar/same model, I'd give up candy blue if I have to just to make the insurance things easier.
Rain sensing wipes were a boon I don't get why they are removing them
