Ford Mustang Convertible

The sixth generation Ford Mustang Convertible is the first to be a truly global car. Sold in both left and right-hand-drive form and with engines ranging from an economical 4-cylinder to a more traditional V8, the original pony car has something to offer many different drivers.

The visual design of the droptop Mustang is both modern and retro, with sharp details and the latest tech slotted into the car’s traditional proportions. Refinement is much improved, but it needs to be if this car is to compete with Germany’s finest premium convertibles. This is the market that Ford aims to shake up both home and abroad and despite this generation’s large step forward in quality, there is no European restraint in the way this car looks or goes.

There is plenty of tech and electronic assistance involved, but the driving experience feels comfortably analogue. The 6-speed manual gearbox is particularly pleasing and is available along with all of the engines.

Ford Mustang 2.3 EcoBoost Convertible

The turbocharged all-aluminium inline 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine has direct fuel injection and punchy performance despite its compact dimensions. The words Eco and Mustang don't sound like a very easy fit, but this lively engine does not disappoint in terms of response, refinement or economy. Keep in mind however that this remains a heavy car and achieving anything close to the claimed economy figures will involve a lot of restraint.
