The interior layout, fit and finish
The Mustang Convertible's driving position is, for the most part, very good. There's a huge range of adjustment to the steering wheel and seat, so even the tallest of drivers should have no problem getting comfortable. That said, some might wish for the seat to go a little lower.
The leather-trimmed front seats offer decent lateral support and come with six-way electric adjustment as standard. However, visibility – particularly over the shoulder – could be better when the roof is up (unsurprisingly, it isn’t an issue when the roof is down). We’d also point out that the Mustang Convertible is quite wide, and judging where the end of the bonnet is can be quite difficult.
Unfortunately, this sophisticated display rather contrasts with the Mustang's more basic-looking Sync 3 infotainment system. Its 8.0in touchscreen has big icons and is fairly responsive, but it looks like someone designed the menus on PowerPoint. You have to pay extra for sat-nav, but the good news is that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring are standard. That means you can use your phone's navigation apps via the car's touchscreen.
Lastly, if you’re something of an audiophile, we’d also recommend pairing the Sync 3 system with the optional B&O premium sound system. It’s priced competitively and is significantly more powerful than the premium sound system options available on the Audi A5 and Mercedes C-Class Cabriolets.
