Ford has finally brought to Indian shores the most iconic car in their product portfolio – the Mustang. The American carmaker first showcased it prior to the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi when it announced plans of launching the model in India. This sixth-generation iteration is the first time the carmaker has made a right-hand drive version of the Mustang. At a special event at the Buddh International Circuit, Ford India introduced the Mustang in India at Rs 65 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi)
Confession: so far we’ve only driven the V8, although we suspect that in the UK the turbo four will be the more popular choice – not least because it’ll be a fair bit more efficient. We’ve also only driven the Mustang in America, where it felt, well, close to perfect, built for the place. Here it’ll doubtless feel larger on the road and as a result less wieldy. But don’t go thinking it’s a talentless heffalump. The new rear suspension has transformed the car’s stability and ride control, and although we’d stop short of saying the Mustang has the long range ease of a Bentley, it sucks up distance effortlessly, plus steers pleasingly accurately and is easily rapid enough.
For now, UK sales will be limited to fastback and convertible bodystyles, 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo and 5.0-litre atmospheric V8 petrol engines, and six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions. And although the Ecoboost four-pot promises an intriguing combination of sub-6.0sec 0-62mph sprinting and 35mpg-plus touring, it’s still the ‘Coyote’ 5.0-litre, the model we’ve chosen to test, that’s expected to dominate sales.
