The base price for the HSE is 56K and the base price for the Supercharged is 69K. That is 13K extra. But it is not 13K for just a faster vehicle and more powerful engine and better handling due to Dynamic Response System which is not yet available on HSE. Here is the math (maybe I should say 'fuzzy' math because it is somewhat subjective):
Start with the base HSE @ 56K, but here is what you would have to add to get to the options of the Supercharged (assuming you wanted any of them):
-20 inch wheels +4K
-HSE Lux Package (Adaptive Lighting, Cherry Trim, Cold Climate, Premium Leather) +3K
-Dynamic Resposne Package +2K estimated* (no pricing yet)
-Dual Exhaust for Sportier look at the back (after market)
So what does that add up to in options 4K + 3K + 2K = 9K.
So 13K - 9K = 4K. In the end, that is roughly what the Supercharged engine is costing you, which for an extra 90 horsepower and the performance that goes with it is not bad depending on how you look at it.
Now if you really don't need the supercharged, then don't get it. Just wanted to demonstrate what the 13K difference really gets you.
Hope that helps a little. I agree that some of the prices are a little silly, example 4K to upgrade the wheels/tires, should be more like 1K-2K realistically.
That was my rationale for getting the Supercharged plus I found the performance significantly better and I wanted the Cold Climate Package and the 20 inch wheels (actually wish they were 22's, ideally 305/35R22) . Plus my budget was not to go over 70K and the Supercharged with PTI and Diff. Lock put me right at 70K.
In the end, the Supercharged feels like the better value for me personally. Enjoy!
