The United States and United Kingdom are said to be two countries separated by a common language, and so while Americans call the Ford Mustang a ‘Fastback’, to us Brits it’s a two-door coupe.
Engine options are limited to a turbocharged 2.3-litre petrol or a 5.0-litre V8, and on price it competes with the likes of the BMW M235i and Audi TT S, even though it's much closer in size to bigger models such as the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5.
Its real appeal lies not in the four-seat interior, though, but in the all-American muscle car image and general bravado it exudes, not to mention the amount of performance it offers for much less than most comparably potent coupes.
The big downside is that, while it’s cheaper to buy than most European rivals, it will be a lot more expensive to run, and it doesn’t feel as well built or as polished. There also isn’t the same variety of engines.
