Ford Mustang review – design

Where the interior falters, the exterior design looks as menacing as ever, especially with 2022’s new colour options

Even though it has had time now to become a familiar sight on UK roads, the Mustang still turns heads like few others, with a friendlier reaction than one might usually get in ‘normal’ sports cars and supercars being a bonus. Everyone loves the Mustang, and the latest aesthetic updates have just sharpened its aggressive, yet approachable good looks.

One perfect example is at a sandwich shop near to the evo offices. Turn up in a Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, or anything like those, and the only feedback is whether we would like a can of Coke with our order. Roll up in even a subtly specced silver Mustang convertible, and it’s the talk of the day. Uncanny.

While there is still some level of customisation with optional decals and rear spoilers, most of the variable wheel options, brightwork and badging are now off the menu for UK buyers. If you’re really into a bespoke look for your American muscle car, though, it is worth remembering the huge tuning scene in America makes customising off-piste an easy, but expensive, enterprise.

The Mach 1 looks even better than the standard car, with a nice combination of retro elements, such as the standard wheels and badging, and some contemporary touches around the rear fascia and lower front bumper. For 2022, more of Ford’s current colour range is now available, including new shades of dark green, dark purple and a three-layer maroon joining the usual combination of sleek or bright base colours.
