Ten Second Review
Prepare to re-set your views on sports coupe value for money. The sixth generation version of Ford's iconic Mustang gets proper right hand drive engineering and the choice of both coupe and Convertible bodystyles. It goes large on power too, bringing a super-sized 418PS powerplant in full-fat 5.0-litre V8 guise or one with 314PS in more economical 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbo form. With prices from around £30,000, similarly powerful European performance cars look hopelessly over-priced.
It's almost a national pastime to take pot shots at American sports coupes. The specialist magazines tend to dismiss them as crude, lumbering fuel hogs that couldn't get out of their own way if they tried. Historically, some of that has been down to jealousy. Traditionally after all, many US sportscars haven't been sold here in right-hand drive form, leaving the 'experts' yet another reason to bitterly snipe away at Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs and Vipers to their hearts' content. And then this happened. Ford announced it was going to make the Mustang in right-hand drive and offer it for sale in the UK. Yep, in the same dealer where you can buy your Fiesta, you can now buy a five-litre V8 Mustang. Suddenly American sports coupes aren't stupid any longer. We suspect this one in particular might actually be quite wonderful.
The Mustang offers a choice between two very different powerplants. While there will be many who don't see the point in choosing anything other than the 5.0-litre V8, Ford predicts a good take-up of the 2.3-litre Ecoboost turbo four. With UK pump prices being what they are, you can see the logic. It's not exactly limp-wristed either. With 314PS to call upon, it'll get to 62mph in a mere 5.5 seconds in six-speed manual guise. There's also a six-speed auto option. In isolation, that would be a very tempting proposition. Look at the ballistic 418PS V8 version though and your resolve might weaken. This demolishes the benchmark sprint in just 4.8 seconds and sounds immeasurably better. Early reports suggest that with less weight under the bonnet, the Ecoboost Mustang may actually handle a bit more crisply than the big-banger five-litre. The standard performance pack on European cars is supposed to firm up the ride, which some won't care for, but should also improve body control when the car's being driven hard. It's a fair compromise and you also get better brakes. There are three driving modes to choose from and stacks of grip. Of course, you can also disable the traction control if you'd rather demonstrate the effects of a surplus of unfettered power going to the rear wheels. The rear suspension is a multi-link affair, so you won't have to put up with ill-informed barbs about leaf springs and live axles.
Design and Build
Buyers choose between fixed-top or Convertible bodystyles and it's the coupe that most distinctively retains the characteristic fastback shape the Mustang has always had, a look which first debuted way back in 1965. Half a century later, this version of the car was unveiled in December 2014. It's still a fundamentally simple piece of styling, more modern and less aggressively surfaced than its predecessor, with flowing curves replacing wedgy angles. Its stance is more purposeful, with this sixth-generation car being lower and wider than before. It's still a fairly conservative all-steel unitary creation and it is a bit disappointing that it's slightly heavier than its predecessor. Still, Ford reckons that's purely down to higher equipment levels and better safety provision. Like for like, the latest Mustang would be slightly lighter than the car it replaced. The cabin isn't going to have the likes of Audi and Mercedes reaching for their drawing boards anytime soon, but a Mustang needs to feel like a Mustang; a proper blue-collar, hairy-chested people's sports car. No, that's not a cop-out: Ford had long and detailed discussions about this. Mustang buyers have an expectation of a certain straightforwardness about the car and Ford needed to guarantee this while at the same time improving interior quality. It actually strikes a nice balance. It's not chi chi but then neither does it feel like a holiday rental.
Market and Model
The Mustang has always been a blue collar icon of value for money in the USA and Ford is just as keen for the car to be seen that way here. You might not initially think that when first faced with the Blue Oval brand's price list, which at launch saw prices pitched in the £31,000 to £40,000 bracket. In terms of performance-per-pound though, that's still represents an awful lot for your cash though. Essentially, the choices here are simple. 'Fastback' coupe or Convertible bodystyles; 2.3-litre turbo four cylinder or 5.0-litre V8 GT power; and six-speed manual or six-speed auto transmission. That's it. No fancier trim levels, no all-wheel drive option: you get it as it comes. You won't be surprised to hear that the base £31,000 price applies to the 2.3-litre EcoBoost 'Fastback' coupe manual version; for a 5.0-litre V8 Fastback coupe GT manual model, the starting price would be around £35,000. Add £3,500 to each of those figures if you want the Convertible bodystyle. And a further £1,500 of you want the auto gearbox. It's also worth pointing out that Mustangs aren't sold at every one of the Blue Oval maker's dealerships. You'll find this sportscar only in the showrooms of the company's premium 'Ford Store' locations. At this model's launch, there were 70 of these, enough, says the brand, to ensure that 90% of the population will be with an hour's drive of one.
Cost of Ownership
If you hold great store in miles per gallon figures, don't ever, ever take a test drive in the 5.0-litre V8 Mustang. It'll ruin you for the Ecoboost model. The 2.3-litre car returns an economy reading that is actually quite impressive for such a big, powerful, petrol-engined car, getting 35.3mpg in manual guise and a less rosy 28.5mpg if you choose the automatic, respective emissions figures being 179 and 228g/km. Choose that heavy hitting V8 instead though, and you'll emit 306g/km, while if you can get the fuel meter to average anything into the twenties, you have more restraint than we could manage. The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine uses direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to deliver its efficiency. A unique intake manifold and turbocharger housing enable it to make good on the performance Mustang drivers expect. The automatic transmission versions feature steering wheel-mounted shift paddles, which isn't really very 'Mustang': more Mondeo coupe...
