    If you are talking about comfort, the small 86 is really more of a 2 seater not unless you plan to put children at the +2 seats.

    I haven't sat in the rear seats of an S197 Mustang (2005 to present), but based on the pics and some reviews, don't expect much rear legroom space (specially if there is a tall front passenger), it is still a chopped down coupe with its platform derived from the longer wheelbase Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-Type sedan.

    Definitely a coupe has lesser legroom than a sedan, however, it seems that if the driver/front passenger in the Mustang is less than 6 feet tall, then there would be more space for back seat passengers. The Mustang's wheelbase is 2717mm, which is not far from the civic sedan's wheelbase, which is 2,667mm (just 10cm difference). 86 wheelbase is 2,570mm, so the Mustang has almost a foot more space inside than the 86. Gen coupe has 2,880mm wheelbase, making it the roomiest coupe offered here.

    Wheelbase length does not always translate to more legroom. The Civic is FWD car which has a more cab-forward layout than the Mustang (dashboard to front axle ratio)



    The Mustang has a larger engine bay to accomodate its larger engines, notice the gap between the Mustang's front doors and front wheels are also greater than the one on the 86.

    PS: Ford Mustang wheelbase: 2720mm (107.1in)
    Toyota 86 wheelbase: 2570 mm (101.2 in)
    The difference is 5.9 inches, roughly half a foot, not 1 foot.

    Wasn't able to verify his source though... At 2.8M this is a good level price for the GT, as it competes well with even the STi in pricing.
    Have you verified his source?

    Laughed so hard about these posts.

    You know what's stupid? People like you trying to fit in 4 pax in a very obvious 2 seater coupe. Those backseats are just for luggage and/or stuffs you can throw in.

    How can it be an obvious 2 seater when theres a backseat?

    Btw. Loading a luggage inside coupe's backseat is stupidity.

    This is very possible since the V6 trim here is only 1M when converted to PHP.
    Too bad GT Coupe and the 302 versions won't reach our shores.
    I mean, they literally can do it with limited quantities - only for the rich and famous

    Kaya maliit backseat ng coupe kasi may 2 dahilan:
    a. Malapit lang naman pupuntahan kaya kunting sacrifice lang, naka-isports car ka naman.
    b. Sobrang tulin niyan at kaya kahit malayo pupuntahan nilang 4, okay lang kasi saglit lang. :hysterical:

    kahit anong supercar ang ipasok mo sa metro manila kayang iwan ng mga truck at bus natin, pwera na lang kung lalaban nila ng banggaan yung kotse nila. :bwahaha:

The Ford Mustang is coming
