Ford Mustang Interior

Reviewers agree that the redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang's cabin is significantly improved over the previous model, noting that it is built with nice materials and has a handsome appearance with a handful of retro design cues. They say the front seats are comfortable and that the rear seats are cramped for adults, though this is a typical complaint for the class.

  • "What about the interior? It's a major improvement - the variety of lines and materials alone makes for nicer viewing, on top of which it is put together with more care and luxury touches like the available blind spot warning in the (tiny) mirrors, rearview camera with a bright, crisp image and adaptive cruise control are tastes of the good life." -- Autoblog
  • "There's a more spacious feel thanks to the new car's less-monolithic dashboard and more trim center console. Its materials have a more premium look and feel than ever before, too." -- Edmunds
  • "The 6th-generation Mustang's interior is appealing and functional, especially if you step up to a premium trim. Modern yet retro, Ford's newest ponycar boasts easy-to-reach audio/climate controls, sturdy switches and comfortable front seats." -- Kelley Blue Book

Seating

The 2015 Mustang seats four on standard cloth upholstery. Leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and cooled front seats and Recaro sport seats are available. According to reviewers, the Mustang's front seats have ample headroom and are very comfortable. Auto journalists also comment that the Mustang offers good forward visibility, though they add that rearward visibility is compromised by thick roof pillars. As with most cars in the class, reviewers say that the rear seats have very little headroom and aren't spacious enough for adults to fit comfortably.

  • "It's no trouble to find a good seating position, the forward view is quite good, and the optional $1595 Recaro seats seem tailor-made just for you." -- Car and Driver
  • "Although we didn't get to test a base model (none were made available at the preview), both the EcoBoost and GT versions driven had unusually comfortable front seats, though only the driver's had adjustable lumbar support." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The driver's seat offers great forward visibility, and you can use the hood's visible creases as reference markers." -- Motor Trend
  • "Visibility is reasonably good, certainly better than a Camaro or Challenger, though the thick C-pillars block everything over your shoulders." -- Edmunds
  • "The two rear seats are tight for adults, especially in headroom." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

The redesigned 2015 Mustang comes standard with a rearview camera, proximity key, Bluetooth, two USB ports and Ford's voice-controlled SYNC system. Optional features include rear parking sensors, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, a 12-speaker Shaker audio system and the MyFord Touch infotainment system.

Some critics note that audio and climate functions operated through MyFord Touch's touch screen often require multiple steps, and they dislike that the fan speed is adjusted with a button rather than a knob. There is a row of toggle switches along the bottom of the center stack, and some critics find that it can be hard to distinguish between the switches in bright sunlight. Still, others say that all of the major controls have a modern look and feel.

  • "In the otherwise retro-styled dashboard, the modern, high-tech audio and climate controls look a bit out of place. Also out of place are many of the controls themselves; the standard touchscreen is quite a reach, as are a number of the knobs and buttons. … Temperature is adjusted with a vertical rotary knob, but fan speed is by repetitive-step pushbutton, and mode is on the touchscreen. For elements incorporated into the touchscreen, it often takes multiple steps through hard-to-access virtual buttons to get where you used to go in one press of a physical one." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The interior design matches the sharp exterior. You can sense the Mustang traces in the layout, but controls and screens feel modernized -- amusingly, the speedometer is labeled Ground Speed." -- Motor Trend
  • "We have a few quibbles: the toggle switches at the base of the center console have the kind of metal-finish coating that makes them look even more like plastic, and the too-light markings mean you can't tell what each toggle is for during daylight hours." -- Autoblog

Cargo

The 2015 Mustang Fastback has 13.5 cubic feet of trunk space, which is more than most rivals offer. The rear seats fold down to accommodate longer items. Convertible models offer 11.4 cubic feet of trunk space. Test drivers are pleased with the amount of trunk space in the Mustang and note that there is sufficient, but unimpressive, space for smaller items in the cabin.

  • "Trunk cargo space is better than expected - 13.5 cubic feet in coupes, 11.4 in convertibles - and the rear seats fold flat to accommodate longer items." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Interior storage is adequate, but no more. The glovebox is arranged so that the owner's manual is out of the way, leaving a fair amount of space for stuff." -- Consumer Guide
