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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Mustang and the Toyota Prius in the front seats.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Prius, which has a much lower MSRP.

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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Mustang, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Prius.

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

Powertrain
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.

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.
