Ford Mustang GT is a successful product for its segment, getting 93 units on the sales chart of 2018. The car performed decently in comparison to the year 2017 as Ford had registered 148 units for the second year. For those who are yet to spot a Mustang on the Indian roads, the muscle car was launched back in mid-2016 for INR 65 lakh. The deliveries for the first six months helped the car gain presence among other exclusive cars of India and helped Ford get 148 buyers in 2017. The drop in sales for 2018 was 37% in comparison to 2017.
However, the current price of INR 74.62 lakh for the Mustang GT must have forced buyers to consider nearby performance options from Mercedes AMG or even the Porsche Cayman by raising the budget. The AMG model of CLA, C-Class, and SLC from Mercedes are all priced around the INR 75 lakh mark. Even the performance-spec GLA 45 costs INR 75.22 lakh, helping buyers with both on-road and mild rough road driving. Ford Mustang is an iconic car in comparison to all these options as the brand is still using a naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 engine.
On the other hand, Porsche Cayman is powered by a 2.0L, engine with 300 HP and benefits from the lightweight body. Ford Mustang is available in the 2019 variant in most markets while the right-hand steering countries are getting the 2018 variant. The new Mustang is lighter and more powerful. The car measures 4784mm in length, 2080mm in width and carries 2720mm of wheelbase. The engine comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox in the Indian version. The 2018 variant is good for 515 Nm of torque at just 4250 rpm. The 2019 Mustang uses an even better engine-gearbox combination.
