2015 Nissan LEAF vs. 2014 Ford Mustang Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan LEAF than the Ford Mustang. The Nissan LEAF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Mustang.

Convenience
With the Ford Mustang you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, 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 Nissan LEAF is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Mustang. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan LEAF and the Ford Mustang have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan LEAF is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Nissan LEAF, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
The Nissan LEAF has much less torque than the Ford Mustang, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan LEAF is significantly less powerful than the Ford Mustang. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Nissan LEAF offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Mustang, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Nissan LEAF will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Mustang.

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