The new generation of Ford Mustang is par excellence and is doing well in the global market. In the US, it's main market, its monthly figures usually are in five digits. In Spain, it leads the 2016 sports car sales and it remains in first place every month since its launch in July 2015. In the UK it sold like hotcakes, in Germany it has beaten the Porsche 911 and in Australia, it exhausted all production until 2017.
But what is the reason for this success? Why is Ford Mustang the best selling sports car of today? Here are 10 keys or reasons to understand why.
Power At A Good Price
It is clear that people love powerful cars but we always like to have an affordable one too. The Mustang offers one of the best ratios between power and price, if not the best in the market. For around $42,000 the Ecoboost Mustang Fastback with bodywork and 314 hp power can be bought and up around $10,000 and you can already get a Mustang GT equipped with the five-liter V8 and 418 hp. What sports car can offer that power for just that price?
Although tastes are subjective, there are times when something is beautiful unanimously and is the case with the Mustang. With its long hood, a stylized line and an aggressive and sporty design without falling into radicalism, the Mustang look is one of the best in the industry, even the Camaro can't beat it, according to the DailySunKnowville.
Icon In The Automotive World
Throughout history, there have been several cars that have left their mark for posterity: from the tricycle Benz in the nineteenth century, following the Ford Model pioneer T in the manufacturing chain mass and passing the Beetle 2 CV or the Land Rover Series I. If we talk about sports, the Mustang was a pioneer in the 60s in a concept car and since there are now six generations that have made the Mustang one of the sagas Ford longest-living. the Mustang is a model but also a culture, a motoring icon that has been renovated from time to time.
For years, the European market envies the US for literally hoarding the Mustang. This year, the drought is over as Mustang still grows its market reach to increase their global sales, according to the StokeSentinel.
Sports Car Without Leaving Aside Practicality
How many sports car have subsequently been labeled as highly impractical? The Mustang is a sporty 2+2-seater that while the two rear do not harbor two adults comfortably, it can accommodate at least one or two short people. Another aspect essential in the day to day is the trunk and the Mustang has one of 408 liters in the body Fastback and 332 in the Convertible while the two rows of seats remain available. Also, forget complicated contortions: entering and exiting the Mustang is as comfortable maneuver like any other ordinary car.
