The automotive New Year is quickly approaching and 2013 models have already begun appearing in dealership showrooms. The summer sales season is typically a great time to shop for previous year bargains—or for the newest models. For those shopping the 2013 Toyota Corolla, Matrix, Sienna, Tacoma, and the Scion xD and iQ—your wait is over!
