I drove the Sport (without runflat tires) when I bought my '08 Limited. Now I am one that prefers sportier handling but this was too stout a ride for me, I didn't care for it. I did not take the salesperson's suggested route as I had already mapped out my own. It made my teeth chatter on the poor roads that I chose but that is subjective. It may not bother you at all.
For my use the seven passenger set up has no merit. The storage space lost isn't worth it, buy a larger vehicle if you need to haul that many folks.
In real usage, as far as full size adults are concerned, the normal two seat set up is a four person vehicle. Five is claimed but reality dictates four for any kind of comfort. Many utes are claimed to be five person vehicles but comfort and practicality is not considered in that claim.
