I was looking at getting a 2014 but got a great deal on a leftover 2012 equipped just like I wanted. Anyway, you should be able to wait and test drive a 2014 and still be able to get a 2013 if you wanted too. Wait for the '14 model and make your decision. The biggest change to the '14 is the 6 speed automatic (on everything but the FDII) but there are a few interior tweaks too.
