What Europe Thinks Of The Mustang Convertible
The UK and the rest of Europe have been treated to their own right hand drive version of the Mustang and it seems they have been selling in droves.
Now they are treated to their own convertible version, so this review looks at the Mustang Convertible to see if it can fulfil the hype.
The review from recombu.com starts with a 5L V8 and then the 2.3L Ecoboost version.
It’s clear from the start that the Mustang feels like a more ‘exotic’ beast than the usual offerings over there, which may be the reason for the current popularity of the Mustang. The wild and the flamboyant is needed every so often in the European market to break up the pure functionality and mindset of the usual European cars.
The performance and handling is where the Mustang stands out. Gas prices are far higher in Europe, but the V8 is still the engine to go for.
For those who don’t want to worry one bit about their gas bill, the eco-boost engine gives you plenty of fun and is less heavy on the fuel. Although purists will never opt. for anything but a V8, the equal boost engine is still a good solution, which arguably fits this environment than anywhere else in the world. Europe is ruled by four-cylinder engines, always has been, so it makes sense for there to be an equal boost option.
Back to the amazing 5 L V8 engine, it can do 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph. This makes the German competitors start to sit up and notice.
Essentially, the Mustang convertible is a breath of fresh air. A big engine sound, a big personality and much more fun than its competitors.
As Dodge and Chevrolet don’t have half the presence of Ford in Europe, this could be the only example of the Europeans getting hold of some pure muscle (pony car).
