2015 Chevrolet Volt 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 Chevrolet Volt than the Ford Mustang. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt, drivers may find the Ford Mustang a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Mustang, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Mustang, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt and the Ford Mustang have similar Destination Charges.

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. If you go with the Chevrolet Volt, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Volt and the Ford Mustang do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt 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 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Volt and the Ford Mustang.

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