4. It's too big and too fat
The current Mustang is both too heavy and too big. Yes, it’s lighter than its muscle car competitors, but it’s a bit hefty for a sports car, which it has transformed into.
The current Mustang V6 weighs in at just over 3,500 lbs, though our convertible tester is a more hefty 3,630 lbs.
High strength steels and other components are certain to help the new Mustang shed weight – early reports suggest the 2015 model will shed 200 lbs. Hopefully it can also minimize its dimensions, or at least make the car feel smaller. The car’s massive front prow does nothing to diminish any sailing metaphors you can dream up holding onto that steering wheel.
