2013 BMW 128 vs. 2014 Ford Mustang Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 128 than the Ford Mustang. The Ford Mustang will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 128.

Convenience
The Ford Mustang requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 128, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW 128 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Mustang. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW 128 is much higher than that for the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 128 is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 128, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
The BMW 128 has much less torque than the Ford Mustang, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 128 has a larger turning radius than the Ford Mustang, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 128 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Mustang. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 128 and the Ford Mustang. The BMW 128 has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Mustang, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 128 than that of the Ford Mustang.
