Zeons replaced the 17" Conti's during the 13MY run.

There's more bang for the buck on the SE platform now than before since 'real wheels' are available on lower trim levels and packages.
I'm not seeing your logic here - the packages are roughly the same price - maybe a bit more in 2014. How is getting less for the same price more bang for the buck.

Honestly, I still think it's worth it just for the rear disc; though that should really be standard!
Agreed on both counts - although I'm not sure there is that much issue with drum brakes - they've worked fine on my 2002 Focus - just antiquated 12 years later.

Mainly, the two-tone gray/black seats and the leather-wrapped wheel.

Arco-Zakus mentioned the shifter trim and door handle trim being different between 2012 and 2014, but the shifter looks the same here:

Oh okay. Yeah I knew about those. I just wondered if there was anything 'different'. That leather wrapped wheel is awesome. I test drove a Focus with it. It'll be on mine when it comes in!

EDIT: Door trim and shifter trim are definitely black not silver for 2014 (the trim to the right of the shifter was silver on the 2012). Also, the shift knob itself had a silver insert on the top in 2012 and does not in 2014.

Like stated above.
The seat colour has not changed but the bolstering looks bigger and looks more like the Recaro's now. The centre dash has an added piece that's painted and the sport pack interior trim colour is slightly different which I'm not a fan of and will just vinyl wrap it like I did my 2013.
The leather wrapped steering wheel might be different but definitely not new for the sport black pack.
The shifter did look different.
I haven't even sat inside the car yet but if I go see it tonight I will. I'm having the dealership install a Ford two way starter and tint the windows so I likely won't pick it up till later this week or might save it for the weekend

Yes the 2012- mid 2013 build with the 17" wheels came with the Continental ContiProContact tires in the P215/50/R17 size with only a 91 load rating and an h speed rating vs the 95Y rated Summer only Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2 tires that come standard on the ST.

They should make good winter wheels though the tires might not be fully up to the task.
