13 is a db sedan. So was the 09. Difference in 09 and 13 is night and day. 13 is WAY smoother on the road. I cant say much about the power because 09(jasper was its name) had i/h/e fp bp v2 cams and stg 3 clutch. So the 13 feels really slow compared to jasper(09). Its really not fair to compare the two. It shifts way smoother and there is way less drone. Seats are much more plush and i get a lot more in the way of electronics for about the same as the 09. The few things i dont like is the design on the seats. The lack of headroom(6'5, 250 lbs.) And the tiny shiftknob. I got big hands, so it feels like im shifting with a blow pop. Overall, I like the 13 alot more. Even with that terrible interior fabric.
