2016 Ford Mustang

It’s hard to ask for a better summer driving partner than the Ford Mustang. Redesigned last year, the Mustang’s muscular available engines, athletic handling, and smooth ride make it a joy to drive. In addition to the fixed-roof fastback body style, it’s also available as a convertible, so you can take in some fresh air as you have fun behind the wheel.

Inside, the Mustang has more upscale materials than some competitors, its front seats are spacious, and the new optional SYNC 3 infotainment system is easy to use. Cargo space measures 13.5 cubic feet in the coupe and 11.4 cubic feet in the convertible, both of which are good size for a sports car, so you’ll have space for your beach gear.

You should be able to get a good deal on a Mustang this summer. Demand has been on the decline over the last several months, and Ford is offering generous incentives to help kick start sales.
