If you check the boxes, you bring the price of a Corolla hatch (or Focus hatch) up to $24k+/-, just under the price of the base model ST.

I mean, just about every car works this way - base model->mid tier model->expensive model->base performance model->mid tier performance model->loaded performance model.

Impreza->impreza WRX->impreza WRX STi, each with their own sub tiers (base, mid, loaded).

Yea, and you just have the entirely different target market. The Corolla HB comes with all the safety tech standard, CarPlay, etc. The focus offers great performance for the dollar but is quite low rent inside unless you get a lot closer to $30k and is on a platform that is a few breaths from dying.
