The name Mustang is featured in most people’s vocabulary, and is a particular mainstay for car enthusiasts. Now, it’s popularity has been confirmed – it is the world’s best-selling sports car.
In the US, sales racked up to over 150,000 while 4,500 drivers in the UK own one of these athletic motors. With a market growth of 101% outside the US, the world really has taken notice of these powerful cars which have been around for more than 50 years.
With its 5.0-litre V8 engine, the Mustang is undeniably fast. It lets out a tremendously loud bellow as your foot hits the accelerator, giving sports car enthusiasts the experience they crave. There is the option of a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, but people in the UK tended to favour the mightier V8 variant.
What we think makes this sports car particularly popular is its practicality. Rather than being a tiny roadster with minimal boot space, the Mustang has plenty of interior room. It’s practical for driving every day, and you can enjoy going away for weekends in this car. Plus it’s a four-seater giving you family-friendly credentials too. While it is a real treat for families, it is a great option for those looking for something sporty that they can rely on.
With its coupé roofline, bold honeycomb grille, cantering horse logo and huge wheels, there’s no denying that the Mustang has sporty appeal. By appealing to the mass market with its design, practicality and price, Ford has managed to secure its best-selling title.
Ford is known for crafting hatchbacks and SUVs, with its Fiesta holding the best-selling car title. Yet this step shows that people are keen to get the balance between a car that looks great, drives fast and allows them to get about their everyday business. As a brand that’s committed to innovation, this progress shows how their advancements are paying off.
