At least according to my order sheet it says it does.

INT2 Leather Sport Bucket Interior Group
IN2L Medium Stone Leather Sport Buckets Include:
Medium Light Stone Insert & Surround
303A = 301A + 302A

301A = the MFT+Sony
302A = "leather-trimmed seats"
I don't have anything that says leather = sport seats, but it makes a lot of sense.

As previous poster posted the leathers are only avail in sport bucket. if you check out fords website it lists only sport for leather option. the two codes are what gets added to my order when i chose the 303A option.

The Titanium doesn't come standard with leather seats though, right? I am looking at an SEL with 301A, could jump up to Titanium for not much more but I don't want leather.

The 400A doesn't have leather.

That's what I thought, just confirming. Just spoke with Ford and wasn't able to find a 400A in my region with just a moonroof.

I would say go with the Titanium! I ordered the SEL and have some regrets. I was soo focused on the SE model and debating MFT that when I ordered I got the SEL. I thought there was a 2K difference in price (sel vs titanium), but, then I realilzed the MFT was standard on the Titanium. That cuts it down to 1K. Then, the brochure arrived and I saw the Bronze Metallic trim which to me doesn't look nearly as nice as the Silver. My car hasn't come in yet and I'm sure I will love it, but, if I had to do it over..definitely the titanium!

Yeah I couldn't find a 400a with a moonroof either. So I had to order it back in May. Just saying that I think sometimes it was an easier option to order than search for the 400a. I didnt want leather because I'm in Florida. :)

I agree re: bronze metallic vs silver.

What I Drive: 2012 Tuxedo Black Titanium Hatch

The way I see it, if you want MFT and upgraded stereo, the difference between the SEL and Titanium for the Hatch, is $605. ($23495-$22890)

For the $605 difference you get:
Intelligent Access (Push button start, etc.)
17" wheels vs. 16" wheels
Silver vs. bronze interior trim (subjective)
Engine Cover
Sport seats
Touring suspension, with option for $595 sport suspension package
Black headlamp surrounds

Seemed worth it to me. The higher trim line may command better resale value too.

It really works out with the hatch b/c the gap between the SEL and Titanium is so narrow. I'm going 4-door with D plan pricing. Already at the top of my price range unfortunately. And I am showing $23790 MSRP for Titanium w/moonroof and and $22785 for SEL 301A moonroof, so a $1K difference before factoring in the D plan. I sat in a Titanium and an SEL but couldn't really notice much difference between the seats. Anyone care to elaborate?
