Interior

If there's one area that lets the Mustang down, it's the interior. Although improved for 2018, it still falls short of the standards of other Ford cars. The Mustang's low list price compared to rivals makes up for it to an extent, but it still costs more than £30,000.

It gets the basics right - the driving position is good and there's plenty of adjustment in the steering column plus we like the supportive yet comfortable seats. But that doesn't disguise the fact that it feels rather dated.

Things like the row of switches at the base of the centre console highlight this. They may look like metal but they are in fact silver painted plastic. The same goes for the dials on the stereo and the air conditioning controls. It feels distinctly low rent in what's supposed to be a feel-good sports car.

Even small details like the buttons for turning on the interior lights - which look like they've been lifted from an early 90s Nissan - show where costs have been kept down.

That's not to say it's short of kit. All models come well equipped with dual zone air con, keyless entry and start while the Ford Sync system (initially the 2 but later upgraded to the much better 3) is excellent with an easy to use and responsive touchscreen. There's also a reversing camera although we're surprised that navigation is an optional extra.

We've also got gripes with the change to right hand drive. The handbrake is on the wrong side, while the cupholders get in the way when changing gear.

Standard equipment:

Mustang comes with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, plus 19-inch wheels, aperformance brake package, automatic HID xenon headlamps, LED tail lamps and a rear diffuser. Further standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a nine-speaker sound system, and SYNC 3 voice control connectivity with an eight-inch colour touch screen.

Additional options include climate control seats and premium 19-inch alloy wheels with Lustre Nickel finish (available as part of the optional custom pack). 11 exterior colour choices include exclusive Orange Fury and tri-coat Triple Yellow.
