2014 Ford Mustang vs. 2014 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Ford Mustang, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord, the Ford Mustang may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Mustang, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Mustang will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Accord. 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 Mustang will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Accord.

Dimensions
The Ford Mustang is a little wider than the Honda Accord, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Mustang takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Accord.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Ford Mustang does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Accord.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Mustang has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Accord. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Ford Mustang has less seating than the Honda Accord, making the Honda Accord the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford Mustang as you will in the Honda Accord.

Warranty
The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Accord.
