We've already mentioned that the Mustang GT can be used to cover long distances with pleasure and one key factor for this is the level of comfort provided by the car.
One of the most important elements is the soundproofing and during our test we felt a perfectly balanced setup that kept most of the unwanted noises outside the cabin, but allowed the pleasant mechanical voices to enter.
Ford wanted to reduce the NVH level of the Mustang GT, so, besides the upgrades we already mentioned in the "Tech facts" chapter, the company also used additional sound proofing.
Extra sound-deadening material was used on the side of the instrument panel, while the doors and the rocker panels now use an extra seal for cutting wind noise. In addition to that, there's a new rear wheel arch liner, which limits the noise on wet and gravel roads.
Ford tells us that it has upgraded the suspension for handling, but the ride doesn't seem to have been sacrificed at all. No matter what type of road you drive on, the Mustang will keep you away from the road's dark side.
The next element that comes to support the car's comfort is the interior itself. This treats the front passengers with plenty of space and the seats keep one cozy even after hours and hours of driving. The seats in the back can't accommodate adults due to the limited head room, but children can use them regardless of the trip's length.
As for the materials used for the cabin, some of the plastics do look do cheap, but they're not unpleasant to touch. There are also parts of the interior, such as the metallic trimming on the dash or the steering wheel, which give you a pleasant touch sensation. You can also add the ergonomics to this story, as the controls are easy to use and within your reach.
Even the climate control system, which only offers one area and comes with manual control, was set up in a way that allows it to quickly adjust the temperature inside the vehicle without the passengers feeling assaulted.Continue reading
