Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M2 than the Ford Mustang. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M2 and the Ford Mustang in the front seats.

Convenience
The Ford Mustang requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M2, 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 BMW M2 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Mustang, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M2 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M2 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 BMW M2, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Mustang.

Handling
The BMW M2 has about the same turning radius as the Ford Mustang, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW M2 has less horsepower than the Ford Mustang, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M2 and the Ford Mustang. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW M2 as you will in the Ford Mustang.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW M2 than that of the Ford Mustang.
