2014 Ford Mustang vs. 2014 Scion FR-S Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Mustang offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Scion FR-S with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Ford Mustang will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion FR-S.

Convenience
The Ford Mustang will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion FR-S, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Ford Mustang is somewhat more expensive than the Scion FR-S. 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 Scion FR-S.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Scion FR-S, 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 Scion FR-S.

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 Scion FR-S.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a smaller turning radius than the Scion FR-S, 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 Scion FR-S. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Mustang and the Scion FR-S. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Mustang will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion FR-S.

Warranty
The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Scion FR-S.
