The Ford Mustang is the quintessential all-American car that was first introduced in late 1960. While there have been several changes in this model over the decades, the core essence of this superb- looking coupe is still an American in the heart with its powerful engine, expensive swept lines and an aggressive look. In the last five decades, Ford has managed to sell more than 9.2 million units of this beautiful looking car. In fact, in the year 2015 alone, the company has managed to sell more than 1.10 lakh units of Ford Mustang, which shows that the attractiveness of this model is still very high among the auto enthusiast all over the world.
This cool looking beast, thanks to its sleek looks is an all-time favourite of the Hollywood and it has featured in more than 3000 movies, which will tell you the impact of this car in the mind of people all over the world. This car has a sweptback look with a sloping roofline that has a pronounced gradient at the rear end of this car, which gives it super aerodynamic capability. The front profile of this car is distinguished by a cool looking engine grill with the logo of a racing Mustang embedded in its middle. If you look at this coupe from the side, it looks pretty long, which not only gives it a sleeker profile but also helps its stability on high speed.
When you enter this car, you will realise why it is called an all-American car. The seats are quite big in size and even a heavyset man can sit comfortably in it. The furnishing of this car is done to flaunt a retro look with round knobs and vents. While the interior of this car does not match up with the refinement of top European cars provide, it has a unique identity of its own which is quite charming. While the seats are wide and very comfortable, if you are tall, then you will feel uncomfortable sitting in the back, thanks to the sloping roof that gives you a smaller headroom. The leg room for the rear passenger is also very tight and it would be a great inconvenience for tall people to sit in the rear seats of the Ford Mustang.
The Ford Mustang is available with only one diesel motor option. The engineers have blessed this car with a very powerful 5 L V8 engine that can churn out a huge power of 401 PS, which results in an impressive torque of 515 Nm, which is sent to the rear wheels with the help of a sophisticated six-speed automatic transmission box. This arrangement allows the car to reach a speed of 0 to 100 km/h under five seconds. You can drive it in four different modes called the comfort, sports, track, and wet. Driving this car is a great pleasure, as you will find that power is available throughout the range of revs and it really pushes you back in the seat, the moment you press the pedal.
Ford Mustang is available for a price tag of Rs. 74.62 lakh (approximate). However, if you want to compare it with its competitors before you buy it, then we suggest that you look at Audi TT, and Porsche Cayman.
