2015 Ford Mustang vs. 2015 Nissan LEAF Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan LEAF than the Ford Mustang, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Mustang, drivers may find the Nissan LEAF a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Ford Mustang you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Mustang or the Nissan LEAF, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 and the Nissan LEAF have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Nissan LEAF, 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 Nissan LEAF.

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 Nissan LEAF.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan LEAF, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Ford Mustang has less seating than the Nissan LEAF, making the Nissan LEAF the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Mustang has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan LEAF, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan LEAF.
