Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

Despite high tech updates, the Mustang is as crude and cool as ever. A muscle car, not a sports car, and all the better for it.

It might be a flawed car, but it must be doing something right – Ford out-sold Porsche in Europe in the sports car segment last year. Clearly, the styling, badge and attitude have massive appeal to anyone who’s a car nut, but it will be interesting to see if sales are maintained now the first cohort of ‘dream car’ buyers have scratched their Mustang itch.

The updates have undoubtedly improved the Mustang offering. The automatic gearbox makes the car crisper to drive, while the looks and noise give it kerb appeal that can’t be matched at this price point. It’s not sophisticated, but it is enormously good fun. Yes, even as a convertible. An EcoBoost coupe with Magneride dampers and the satisfying, hefty manual gearbox is probably the best all-round choice if you care about driving. But could you say no to the V8?
