The Top Gear USA car review:Ford Mustang
For:It has evolved into a timeless classic. Pleases as much today as it did the day it was born over 50 years ago
Against:Rear-seat access and space is limited; the Camaro is faster and even better handling
What is it?
The silhouette might look much the same as the first fastback pony car produced over 50 years ago. But the modern Ford Mustang is an altogether more accomplished thing than ever before. Available in three core variants – the turbo four-cylinder 310bhp EcoBoost, the 460bhp 5.0-litre V8 and the crazy, high-revving 526bhp GT350 – the Mustang stays true to its roots by being both fun, fast and inexpensive. Only now it adds a layer of sophistication that makes it more of a sports car than just a grumbling muscle car.
