The sport is a great little SUV. I bought one while I wait for my full size and love it. I think the hate here is misguided. They are two completely different class of vehicles. It was a great replacement for my 2006 Escape. I plan on driving that as my daily driver and winter driving duties. The full size will be relegated to all the fun driving and will be verboten to visit the mall. The biggest issue for the Sport is the lack of ground clearance and there is very little that you can do to improve it. Adding a 2 in lift helps a little but you are still limited to 30 inch tires. That being said, the 2.0 Badlands makes a great daily driver and is great in the sand and snow.How do you like it? I haven’t driven a Sport yet.
