Not to be harsh but, these questions are pointless. The prices are reflective of demand in your area and host of other considerations.
There's no way someone in California
can tell you what you should pay in Maryland.
Ask yourself this: Is this a good value? What can I afford, really, to support in terms of a payment? What can I put down? What's my trade-in value? Then the math resolves itself.
Remember taxes and fees will add up as well and factor those in.
I paid 40K OTD for a tits-loaded '12 in December of last year, fwiw. Challenges in my area were a huge lack of supply (I got the last '12 in my geographic area, fortunately, I liked it), a generally good economy where I live so, no downward pressure on sales and minimal factory incentives for my region. That said, the car was overall a good deal for what it is and where I am.
