2012 Ford Focus SE hatchback front seats
 
Do all hatchbacks come with sport seats?

As in Sport Package seats? No. They have what their sedan counterparts would have. The ST has only Sport seats or Recaros though.

Correct, and to add 2013 models you cannot get sport seats in ANYTHING but the ST1 package, The ST2 has the 2 tone Recaros, and ST3 are solid black Recaros.

The 2012 Se hatch only had sport seats if it had the Sport package.
The main identifier for the SE with Sport package is rear disc brakes.
The 2012 SE hatch without the sport package has drum rears.

Sorry about that. It is still a great car though!

Well yes, the only way to get the two toned SE sport seat cloth is to get the ST1 package in 2013, however the Sport seat frame was used at least in 2012 in the SEL and Titanium with a different cloth or leather pattern on the seating surfaces as opposed to the base "comfort" seat assembly used on the S and base SE.

I've compared the bolstering of my SEL seat to the SE sport seat and its the exact same frame and much more aggressively bolstered than the base seats.

It may be possible that the SE 201A in 2013 as well as the Ti still use the same seat frame as the ST1 but with different materials over the seating surface.
