The Top Gear car review:Ford Mustang
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
It may be big on the outside, but the Mustang isn’t a exactly packaging masterclass within. The boot’s suitably commodious, but fitting normal-sized adult humans into the back seat isn’t an easy undertaking. Especially not if you tick the box for the optional Recaro seats. You really should, though: they are absolutely magnificent bucket chairs.
Build quality isn’t going to rival the TT and nor is design (it contrasts starkly with the Audi’s ‘virtual cockpit’ sophistication), but that’s not the Mustang’s schtick – it’s all about delivering a laidback feelgood factor, and it does that pretty darn well.
