2016 Ford Mustang Walk Around

With all new sheetmetal for 2015, the Mustang endures as unmistakably Mustang, with muscular yet graceful lines on a low and wide stance, and Mustang cues all around. The fastback sweep from the late ’60s Boss 302 is back.

The Mustang commands stares with its presence, but if you look too hard or too long you will begin to wonder. Thin pillars will make you think of a Pontiac Grand Prix two-door. The panel around the taillamps channels Mopar. Triple light pipes in the headlamps would be at home in the ’70s.

There are two cool appearance packages. Black Accent has 19-inch black alloys, a black spoiler, dark taillamp trim, and pony badging. If you want to go all the pony way, there is the Pony Package, with chrome that tries to turn your Mustang into a time machine that takes you back to the early days. We’ll take black. With titanium paint. Striking.

The Convertible is now available with the Performance Package, making a very special car. The multi-layer insulated top is classy and quiet. No desire to go back to the old days of flapping canvas and freezing inside, not to mention manual labor.

Interior

The cabin is young, and richer than the Camaro, with better ergonomics. Tactile knobs and switches are airplane-like, well organized, neatly fitted. The gauges are large and deep.

The Mustang is the size of a Ford Fusion with the layout of a 2+2, so there’s more space inside than a Camaro, although we wonder where it goes. The back seats are tokens, and the trunk is not good for much more than weekends. But there’s good room in the front, and with the optional Recaro seats it gets racy.
