2016 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2016 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 Chevrolet Volt than the Ford Mustang. The Ford Mustang will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt.

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 Chevrolet Volt 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. In this case, the Chevrolet Volt will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Volt is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Volt is slightly shorter than the Ford Mustang, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Mustang, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Volt 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
The Chevrolet Volt offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Mustang, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Volt comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Mustang.
