yes (benches fold forward, seatbacks fold down flat). Many '12's didnt have it below the SEL trim but now SE's have it if you have the convenience/leather package. Also just to be a nitpicking bastard, anything long that may fit in the sedan's trunk would have to either stand up or require a seat down in the hatch, exposing it (tip for the ninja thieves)

I dont think its not 'sporty' enough as much as its appeasing a target market. enthusiasts (willing and able to buy) prefer the hatch. I prefer the Sedan, however I would have NO problem in an ST despite the hatch.

on the other hand, the hatch is a TAD tighter in the corners, maybe that all went into ST development too
