    I don't think I've seen one of these cars on the road.

    I have seen them on the road, although they could be loaner cars from a local dealer, as they seem to be replacing TSXs in that role. Only the base car went up by $1000, reflecting the leather upholstery instead of cloth (the latter was actually a selling point to me) and other items. The Tech Package went up $200 and the other models stayed the same (although 2014 hybrid prices haven't been announced).
