2015 Ford Mustang vs. 2015 Toyota Prius Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Toyota Prius 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). The Ford Mustang is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius. 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 Toyota Prius have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Toyota Prius, 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 Toyota Prius.

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 Toyota Prius.

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

Utility
The Ford Mustang has less seating than the Toyota Prius, making the Toyota Prius the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius.
