Look at invoice price of the 2012. Look at invoice price of 2013. You should be paying less for the 2012 then the 2013.
Factors to consider -
1) is the warranty/maintenance going to be from the point of sale or the point of car creation? That is the difference of at least a year.
2) That car has been sitting on the dealership lot for a while...they are losing money on it (they have to pay interest on the loan they took out) - plus everyday it gets older they are going to sell it for less
Take a look at the residual value for that car (like a lease). See what the car will be in four years. Let's say the car is $40,000 in 2012 brand new. In 2013 = $35,000. In 2014 = 27,000. In 2015 = 20,000 (hypothetical). You are now buying the car in 2013. I would want that reduction of price ($5,000).
Obviously the dealership will argue. They will want to give you $500 cheaper than a 2013 - but you should argue back. They look at residual values and so should you.
