2014 Ford Mustang vs. 2014 Lexus CT 200h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus CT 200h than the Ford Mustang, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Mustang and the Lexus CT 200h in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Mustang as you will with the Lexus CT 200h, 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 Mustang is clearly a better financial choice over the Lexus CT 200h. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Lexus CT 200h.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Lexus CT 200h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Mustang, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus CT 200h.

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 Lexus CT 200h.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus CT 200h, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Mustang has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus CT 200h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Ford Mustang has less seating than the Lexus CT 200h, making the Lexus CT 200h the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Mustang is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus CT 200h.
