Introduction

What Car? says...

Yes, the car you’re looking at is a Ford Mustang Convertible and, yes, it does have a steering wheel on the correct side of the car. Interested? We thought you might be.

Unlike the fastback version (read, Coupé), the Convertible only comes with a choice of two petrol engines – but, spoiler alert, they’re crackers. The cheapest is a relatively mild-mannered 2.3-litre four-cylinder unit, with ‘only’ 266bhp, or you can have a full-fat-with-bacon-on-top 5.0-litre V8, with 444bhp. You can also get the latter engine in a 454bhp configuration, but this is reserved for the Bullitt edition coupé.

Despite costing around the same as a basic Audi A5 Cabriolet or Mercedes C Class Cabriolet, the Mustang Convertible is a big car (closer in size to an E Class Convertible) that comes stacked to the canvas with standard equipment. And we’re not just talking about basics like keyless entry and adaptive cruise control (both of which, rather surprisingly, are options on the Audi and Mercedes) – go for the V8 and you get exotic Brembo brakes, an active exhaust system and various track-focused apps. You even get a pair of rear seats that make it semi-practical.

If that sounds like your cup of Joe, click through the next few pages to see how it drives, what its interior is like and how kind it is to your wallet. And if you're already hungry for a slice of this American pie, check out our New Car Buying service for tasty Mustang savings.
