Ten reasons to buy a 2015 Mustang - The Pros

It looks good

When it comes to a sports car, good looks are a must. And the 2015 Mustang has them with the return to its classic fastback build. The new Mustang is wider and sits lower to the ground. The adjustments to its outer appearance have made it more aerodynamic without subtracting from its beauty.

Different engine choices

When it comes to choosing between power and practicability, the 2015 Mustang will not disappoint consumers. The new Mustang is available in three engine styles, which offer something for everyone. It comes with a V8 for those who love power, a V6 for those who like something in the middle, or a new fuel-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engine for those who want to save money.

Good gas mileage

With the price of gasoline these days, good gas mileage is essential. The new Mustang offers competitive gas mileage with its selection of engine sizes. City mileage ranges from 15 to 22 miles per gallon, and highway mileage ranges from 25 to 31 miles per gallon.

It handles well

The redesigned Mustang hugs the road and gives drivers better control. It steers more precisely and is more stable during braking and acceleration. And with the addition of independent rear suspension, the ride is smoother on bumpy roads.

Customized driving preferences

It is all about the driving, and the redesigned Mustang lets drivers choose among four driving settings at the flip of a toggle switch. Drivers can choose from the options of normal, snow/ wet, sport, or track. The car adjusts its handling and response for the selected driving mode and gives the driver better control in a variety of situations.

Easy entry and easy start

The redesigned Mustang makes it easier to get into the car and to start it, too. Its optional intelligent access feature lets drivers open the car door with the touch of a handle when they have the key fob in their pockets. Once inside, drivers can start the car with the push of a button.

Various steering selections

It’s all in the steering wheel, and the 2015 Mustang offers consumers three different power-assisted steering options. Drivers can choose among comfort, sport, or standard steering options. The comfort option requires the least effort. The sport setting requires the most effort. The standard option strikes a balance between the other two settings.

Safety features

The new Mustang offers safety features that can help drivers avoid accidents. It comes with forward collision warning and brake support that can notify drivers if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of them. If drivers do not respond in time, the brakes will pre-charge and provide full responsiveness when the driver does step on the brake. Consumers also have the option of a blind spot information system that uses radar to detect vehicles in the driver’s blind spot.

Color choices

The redesigned Mustang offers 10 color choices, and drivers are sure to find one that suits their styles and personalities. Along with the basic white, black, gray, and silver colors, the Mustang comes in orange, yellow, and two shades of red.

New cockpit design

The 2015 Mustang’s revamped cockpit offers drivers a more comfortable and convenient ride. The driver’s seat sits lower, and the new steering wheel is smaller, tilts, and telescopes. The cup holders have been relocated outside of the path of the shifter.

Reasons you may not want to buy the 2015 Mustang - The Cons

Small backseat

With all its revamping, the new Mustang still has a small backseat. It might not be the best choice for those who may need to transport more than one passenger. While the backseat will hold two passengers, larger individuals may feel uncomfortable and cramped.

Rear-wheel drive

Like its predecessors, the 2015 Mustang has rear-wheel drive. It may not be the best choice for those who drive often in snow and inclement weather where a front-wheel drive vehicle might be a better choice.

Complicated controls

Drivers who like simplicity might not like many of the new Mustang’s technological features. Some reviews have indicated the new controls can be complicated.

How the 2015 Mustang stacks up to the competition

The new Mustang holds its own against its usual competitors – the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro.

While the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro have many of the same features, only the Mustang offers a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine and a standard backup camera.
