    I like that they have modified the charge port door.

    I don't like that they deleted the blue colour. I thought the blue was reasonably popular? However I am biased as mine is blue.

    Are these the only change or only the ones that are known to date? If so I won't have a reason to update from a 2011 yet.

    Mostly cosmetic. Heated seat cloth or leather is good. I would still have gotten leather. Push charge door will make some happy. Never had an issue with mine though. I doubt we'll see any significant changes until gen 2 rolls out.

    I love the look of the blue, and I rarely see many of them in inventory.

    I'm surprised they're deleting it.

    Heated cloth seats were an option for 2013 with the Comfort Package.

    My first color choice would have been the Blue as the color with black trim is sharp. I took the viridian joule as it was the only "loaded" unit in stock. The Zero out the door deal ended the day I was there, so the color did grow on me and I now like the "Adidas" interior color scheme of black leather with white accents.
    I like the charge door release, as it reminds me in the car to change to 12amp. Doubt that option will work from outside pushing the door open.

    So they remove the nice black/red seats which I would have liked to have, but which were not available in Finland. Those red + black/red seat units will now be collectibles.. Double aaargh "you can't get one, and now we remove the option for good"...

    And for the new colors.. Indifferent.. A metallic orange one would have been nice..

    The push to open charge door is like stone age fix for some harge door opening issues. Instead of fixing the problem, they created a totally new one. Why did they not fix the issues and added a configurable option for enabling this in software for those who like this. Hint to all developers.. Retain the existing, add new features, do not remove funtionality.

    BTW: The DVD player is really nice on 2012, but could we get Netflix etc next? No.. They removed that for 2013..

    So the comfort package isn't available anymore, but heated seats are available with cloth seats, and it isn't called the comfort package anymore? What other ingenious name changes can we look forward to? Seriously, though, I guess since the leather steering wheel is standard now, they just gave the optional heated seats a clearer name.

    If ashen gray is a much lighter gray, it will be very practical for hiding road dirt. I had an Oldsmobile Cutlass that I could have called ashen gray. When it got dirty, it just looked grayer. That saved me time and money on car washes.
