You wouldn't get power seats anyways, Recaros being what they are

Yeah I would think it would have a power driver seat like the Ti, but it only describes them as heated leather seats only. However the pre-production ST3 I sat in at one of their drive events had a full leather and power Recaro Driver seat so I don't think the website is listing the full feature set.

Just make it an option on the focus Ti only and use the fusion version of the 2.0 eco with the fusion auto trans only. If you want a manual trans, just get the ST.
They could also import the wet clutch DCT which is mated to this engine in the current European Mondeo which would be a better match for the engine in my opinion than a 6F35. But the 6F35 is domestically produced and the wet clutch DCT is not.
