Why world anyone buy this car?

I've been using the 2022 Ford Ecosport as a loaner from the dealership while my regular vehicle is being serviced and I am entirely disappointed by the lackluster and uncomfortable interior, by it's uninspired and lethargic performance, and it's boring and sad styling. To start, the first thing I noticed when climbing in is everything inside looks and feels cheap. From the rough and hard plastic feel of the steering wheel, the small and complicated infotainment system, the hard, uncomfortable, flat seats and lack of interior styling immediately put me off the model, and that is before I even started the engine. I was hoping to at least get decent fuel economy or a sporty feel given both are indicated in its name but I guess Ecosport is a complete lie because neither is true. While averaging 22 mpg, and a 0-60 time measured on a calendar, there are no redeeming properties regarding this car. Storage space is small and feels insufficient for an SUV, rear and front passenger leg and head room is also lacking. I can't imagine why anyone would pay for this car. I wouldn't keep it if the dealership gave to me.

Not meant For Vacation But its A work CAR

New 2 weeks ago today. This car is not intended for family vacation. I use it as a daily driver a 100 miles round trip. I got the mid-grade trim package heated seats moon roof. it has a small gas tank 13.9 gallon. I question the MPGs as advertised but its ok at 27 mpg all highway. It will fit 4 people but i believe Ford didnt intend for it to be a vacation car but a general purpose of getting back and forth to work car.So far so good only time will tell.
