Let's put the top down.
Ford released their sixth version of the Mustang, one of the planet's most widely known cars, for the 2015 model year. As the car market shrinks and as buyers turn from sedans to crossovers, there's clearly plenty of room in the industry for a pony car from Ford.
• Terrific design
• Sufficient power
• Surprising agility
• Cooled seats
• Fast top operation
|THE BAD |
• Sounds like an electric lawnmower
• Automatic isn't sports-minded
• EcoBoost is no leap from V6
• MyFordTouch: easy but slow
• Over the top spec
50 years after launching the first Mustang to instantaneous success, Ford drastically improved the Mustang for 2015. Though not to the extent that Ford's first Mustang was, the new car is a hit. Part of the explanation for the success attained by this new model lies under the hood of the test car loaned to us for a week by Ford Canada.
Yet it's that very engine that lies at the centre of our criticism.
Not that there's much else to complain about.
