Introduction

What Car? says...

Do you ever get out of bed in the morning craving a bit more ‘yee-haw’ in your life? If the answer to that is a big 10-4, say howdy to the Ford Mustang Fastback (read coupé).

Right, now that we’ve got all the American clichés out of our system, let’s look at what the 'Stang offers. You can choose from two engines, both of which are powerful petrols. The tamest is a 266bhp 2.3-litre four-cylinder Ecoboost that shares more than a few nuts and bolts with the motor in the Focus RS. Spend a little more, though, and you can have a thumping great 444bhp 5.0-litre V8.

The latter engine also comes in a slightly more powerful 454bhp configuration, but this is reserved for the Bullitt edition coupé – a car that was initially built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that much-celebrated car-chase film, but one that proved so popular with UK buyers that Ford turned it into a full production model. 

Despite being a large, brawny slice of Americana, the Mustang has a purchase price that seems entirely reasonable. If you want similar levels of firepower with a European badge, you’ll need to pay a lot more money or buy a much smaller car; the Audi TT and BMW 4 Series Coupé are among its closest coupé rivals from this side of the pond. Compared to those, the Mustang certainly has undeniable presence.

So, if the Mustang sounds like your pitcher of root beer, click through the next few pages to see how it drives, what its interior is like and how it will treat your pocket. And if you get the urge to pony up, check out our New Car Buying pages for supersized savings.
