Ford Mustang

(2015 - present)

The Ford Mustang is a large 2+2 coupé and convertible model that has been famous around the world since the 1960s. The current model is the sixth generation and was launched in the USA in 2014.

The Mustang arrived in the UK in 2015, and the current model is the first model to have been offered from the factory in right-hand drive. After receiving a poor two-star Euro NCAP safety rating, the Mustang was updated in summer 2017 with additional safety kit as standard. It was re-tested and awarded a three-star rating (more information under “safety rating” below).

The Ford Mustang has received a wide range of scores from the UK motoring media, ranging from average to outstanding. It has tended to perform better in enthusiast titles and more poorly in consumer titles. The limited-edition Bullitt model also tends to get the best review scores, while the four-cylinder models tend to be rated lowest.

Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

Overall rating: 3 stars
Date tested: July 2017









Note on safety
In its original form when launched in 2015, the Ford Mustang scored only a two-star rating from Euro NCAP. The facelifted model from July 2017 featured additional safety equipment as standard and was rated at three stars when re-tested. The car’s principal weakness is child passenger protection in the rear seats, while the other tests produced much more competitive scores.
