I went through a similar dilemma and picked up a brand new 2013 Laredo CRD with 27km on the clock for 10k below the RRP. If I went for MY14 CRD it would have been another 12k plus 4 months wait. The biggest deciding factor for me was the 8 speed transmission. I drove CRD with 8 speed and 5 speed back to back and found 8 speed to be better but the difference was not significant enough for me to pay extra 12k for it. Very happy with the outcome given I got brand new car with big chunk of new car depreciation already gone.
