There is a power port in the back as well as the back middle seat "console/armrest" thing folds down into cup holders. I had my car for like a month before I realized this!

Really? Is that a 2013 thing or a sedan-only thing?

/checks car

Yeah, definitely not on my '12 hatch.

My 2012 sedan has a power port on the back of the front seat armrest near the floor for use in the backseat.

Talking about the power port or armrest in the seats? Haha.

It's a sedan thing, only with leather. My Ti sedan has it, my 13 SE 201A has it, but my kids 12 SE 203A does not.

Something else, the back seat bottom cushion folds up to allow the back to sit flat, but only if you have leather seats, cloth seats do not fold up. Don't know if hatches get this too?

All of the hatches I've seen have the lifting seat base to allow the seat back to fold flat.

Both my SEL and now my ST also have the hinged seat base, although I've not used it on the ST.
