Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Mustang offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota 86 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 Toyota 86.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Mustang as you will with the Toyota 86, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 86. 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 Toyota 86.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Toyota 86, 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 86.

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 86.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 86, making it slightly 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 Toyota 86. 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 Toyota 86. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Mustang will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota 86.

Warranty
The Ford Mustang comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 86.
