Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z, the Ford Mustang may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Nissan 370Z 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Mustang will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan 370Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Mustang is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Nissan 370Z, 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 370Z.

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 370Z.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, 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 370Z. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Ford Mustang offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Mustang will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan 370Z.
