An iconic muscle car with plenty of personality, the new Ford Mustang epitomises power and presence. Featuring a more dynamic look thanks to a lower-set bonnet and slimmer, streamlined lights, it’s available in a range of guises including convertible and Fastback, and with the option of a 2.3-litre EcoBoost or 5.0-litre V8 engine. To step inside this vehicle is to take control and experience performance that leaves other cars in the shade.
Performance is where the new Ford Mustang really comes into its own. Ford’s revolutionary EcoBoost technology is paired with the 2.3-litre engine and together they deliver a top speed of 145mph and a 0-62mph sprint of just 5.5* seconds. This is balanced by startling fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions of as little as 199g/km.
The 5.0-litre V8 unit is even more impressive, providing smooth power delivery through the gears and a 0-62mph time of 4.3* seconds. Those who love the sound of 450PS power will appreciate the throaty roar produced by this engine, while those interested in the figures can find real-time performance information on the LCD screen in the dash.
The highly-efficient 10 speed selectshift automatic gearbox has been tuned and perfected for ultimate performance returning the V8 fastback 0-60 times a hair over 4 seconds and improving overall mpg performance, producing the lowest CO2 emissions at 270 g/km.

A high-performance car needs state-of-the-art safety features to support its power, and the Mustang features all the latest systems to ensure complete protection. A specially designed braking system is linked to electronic safety and driver assist technologies for maximum efficiency, while the airbags offer optimised chest and leg protection for the driver and front passenger.
AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control monitors the speed of each wheel to ensure the Mustang is composed and controlled in wet conditions or when taking corners. Meanwhile, Advanced Traction Control ensures maximum grip and contact when accelerating.
There’s no doubt that the Mustang’s driving experience is thrilling. With four different modes – Normal, Sport Plus, Track and Snow/Wet – drivers can choose their preferred style. Each setting adjusts the steering response, stability control and throttle to deliver the perfect ride for the conditions. In addition, the body structure has been stiffened to promote excellent composure through corners, while finely-tuned suspension ensures a comfy ride.
Driver Assistance technologies include Hill Start Assist to make pulling away on an incline easier and safer, as well as tyre pressure monitoring, which illuminates an icon on the instrument panel if a tyre starts to lose pressure.
MagneRide suspension provides the ultimate control over performance; able to adapt the damper fluid to driving conditions one thousand times per second, stiffening and softening resistance for perfect cornering.
And when you're finished taking your local B-road like LeMons, lighting up the wilderness with Mustang Muscle growls, the Active Valve exhaust system takes note of your late night return and can activate 'Good Neighbour Mode' to soften your arrival.
To add to the excitement offered by this latest iteration, the new Mustang comes fitted with some truly sophisticated technology. The push-button start mechanism allows you to get going in a flash, while the driving mode selector means that you will be able to tailor your driving style to suit your mood.
With a range of technologies to make life easier, the new Mustang puts a focus on relaxation. The spacious cabin features dual-zone climate control so both occupants can travel at the perfect temperature, while ambient lighting provides a sophisticated yet calm atmosphere in the cabin during night-time drives.
The Ford SYNC 3 system enables media and navigation functions to be controlled via the fully customisable 12" colour touchscreen or voice commands, as well as being able to display information from your smartphone. Add the optional Shaker Pro Audio System for unrivalled music clarity from CDs, MP3 devices, and the DAB radio.
