Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford C-Max Hybrid as you will with the Ford Mustang, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the Ford C-Max Hybrid is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid and the Ford Mustang have similar Destination Charges.

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

Handling
The Ford C-Max Hybrid has about the same turning radius as the Ford Mustang, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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