Why Lease A Ford Mustang?

How Does It Drive?
Unsurprisingly, the Mustang doesn’t do very well in this area, but that won’t matter too much given what it offers elsewhere.
While the more-than-400-litre boot capacity looks decent on paper, in reality a high lip and narrow opening can make it tricky to load. And the rear seats are really only suitable for small children or professional contortionists. The one thing you can say in its favour here is that the Mustang does marginally better than one of its key rivals, the Audi TT, when it comes to both boot and rear-seat space.
The Mustang’s reputation very much precedes it here. No one has ever associated V8 petrol engines with good fuel economy and so it proves. The absolute best you’re going to see from the Mustang is about 25mpg – and that’s if you go for the 10-speed automatic gearbox. Choose the more traditional 6-speed manual, drive with a bit of verve and you’ll be lucky to see mid-teens economy figures.
Mustang FastbackThe classic 2-door Mustang coupe shape. It looks the part, with enough retro cues to get you smiling, yet enough of a contemporary feel that it doesn’t seem like pastiche of the original.
Mustang ConvertibleIf you’re really addicted to that V8 exhaust note, you’ll want to get the drop-top version in order to enjoy the sound even more. Few cars are better suited to cruising around on a warm, sunny evening.
High Performance ModelsWith every variant sporting a solid V8 engine, every Mustang is a high-performance model. But for the ultimate Mustang experience, you’re going to want to lease the Mustang Mach 1. It gets an extra 10 or so horsepower over the standard car, as well as a raft of tweaks to the brakes, suspension and other systems.
The Ford Mustang Vs Competitors
As the Ford Mustang isn’t leased by many UK motorists, it’s hard to build up a comprehensive picture of its long-term reliability. But its V8 engine is a tried-and-tested component, and it’s a relatively simple and straightforward car overall, so there aren’t a lot of complex systems to go wrong.
The Mustang has a 408-litre boot, which is a good capacity for a sports model. But it’s a bit tricky to access due to a high loading lip and fairly narrow, saloon-style opening.
Just GT and Mach 1. The former has most of the kit you’ll need, and the latter mainly adds upgrades designed to make the Mustang handle better on a racetrack.
The Mustang comes with a rear-view camera and rear parking sensors, which is very helpful when reversing into a tight space, as visibility through the car’s narrow windows isn’t the best.
The Mustang has been an iconic car ever since it launched at the height of the optimistic 1960s. And the latest version banishes the stodgy handling of some earlier iterations, making it a worthy rival for the best European sports cars.
