Most things are hard to miss if you don't have them.

The handling package with the 18's and push button/intel access is awesome and worth getting IMO. Once you become accustomed to not getting the key out to enter or start the car, I wouldn't buy another car without it. The one touch up/down windows are a nice convenience. I don't have it on my Ti or ST but wish I had the back up camera. Good luck with your decision.

It's really shocking how much easier it makes things, not fumbling for the key

Intelligent Access & Push Button Start -

You have no idea how wonderful a feature this is. Go to dealer and ask them for a Ford Focus SE key & fob & then the Intelligent Access Key.

I have to say I"m a big fan of the intelligent access and push button start. Not only that but the Titanium comes with remote starter as well. You can set it to start defrosting the windows during the winter or turn on the AC during summer.

Plus, I got two daughters and everytime I stop to get the mail I feel like one of them is going to jump in the drivers seat and take off. With the key being in my pocket - I don't have to worry about that happening!

Also, there is something pretty sweet about the MyKey thing as well. You can create a MyKey that limits the car top speed, radio noise, seat belt indicators, and more features so if you kid starts driving you can see exactly how many they have driven.

Forgot to mention that the SE with MFT also had automatic climate
Thanks for this info! Does your fully optioned SE have the chrome HVAC vent bezels? Also, are your front and rear interior door handles silver or black?

On my se the inboard hvac vents are silver the outboard ones are black. With the ti I believe the outboard ones have a silver accent. My interior door handles are chrome. I didn't go for many options on mine and I don't miss anything. Race red is the best colour

The only thing the SE lacks standard to the titanium is keyless start, front parking sensors, backup camera, all one touch power windows. I think titanium also has power passenger seat

option wise the titanium has available handling package with 18s, available parking package, and not sure but maybe available auto wipers.
The parking sensors are only available in the parking assist package. Not standard.

No car in the Focus line has power passenger seats.

The 2012 came with rain-sensing wipers, but the 2013s do not.

In 2012 the SE had a great package. That package was removed for 2013. For 2013 the price difference between an SE and Ti makes the Ti a better deal considering the bonuses you receive.

If you can afford a Ti, then choose the Ti, you won't regret the extras.

Oh another thing. If you are a cleanliness person like me... The parking sensors all over the bumpers KILL the clean looks. Maybe I'm just particular, but OH MAN, I hated seeing them on the lighter colored cars, especially. A rear camera would have been nice on my car, but the sensors, HELL NO.
