Ownership cost

What used Ford Mustang coupe will I get for my budget?

About £23,000 seems the bottom line for a Mustang of 2015/16 vintage. This buys you 2.3-litre with an average mileage for the year. Expect to spend between £25,000 and £28,000 on an early V8 GT or a 2017 car, and around £30,000 to £35,000 on a newish 2018 or 2019 car, bought from a franchised dealer.

How much does it cost to run a Ford Mustang coupe?

MPG

According to the older NEDC official figures, the 2.3 achieves 31.3mpg on the combined cycle. The V8 is thirstier, not surprisingly, only manages 22.8mpg. 

CO2 emissions

No Mustang is particularly good when you consider the CO2 emissions (a hangover from its American heritage), with the 2.3 putting out 199g/km and the V8 spewing 277g/km of CO2 emissions from the exhaust.

Car tax (VED)

Cars registered before the tax changes of April 2017 came into force will pay an annual car tax (VED) based on CO2 emissions, while those registered after will pay a flat rate. Mustangs costing over £40,000 when new will also pay a supplementary luxury car tax. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information.

Servicing and insurance 

Insurance groups are relatively high, of course, and servicing costs won’t be as cheap as you might expect a Ford to be.
