Driving

What is it like on the road?

Ford Mustang Fastback front quarter

Confession: so far we’ve only driven the V8, although we suspect that in the UK the turbo four will be the more popular choice – not least because it’ll be a fair bit more efficient (saying that, the price difference isn’t great and the V8 does offer 435bhp, 400lb ft, 0-60 in 4.4secs and genuine Mustang kudos).

The Mustang feels larger on the road and as a result less wieldy than it does in the States. But don’t go thinking it’s a talentless heffalump. The new rear suspension has transformed the car’s stability and ride control, and although we’d stop short of saying the Mustang has the long range ease of a Bentley, it sucks up distance effortlessly, plus steers pleasingly accurately and is easily rapid enough.
