Looking for a sports car that’s exciting as well as safe? Consider a pre-owned 2017 Ford Mustang GT.
With its monstrous 435 hp, the 5.0-liter V8 engine can blast you from zero to 60 mpg in only 5.3 seconds. While this extreme acceleration is always fun, you have to slow down eventually. Fortunately, in a braking test, the 2017 Mustang was able to reach a complete stop in just 108 feet, which is well above the average for its segment.
This coupe gave an outstanding performance in safety tests, receiving a perfect five-star rating from the NHTSA. Motor Trend reports that the Mustang was also highly favored by the IIHS, who awarded it top scores for roof strength, head restraints, side, and moderate overlap front.
Is your teen driver begging you to borrow the pony car for the night? Don’t panic. You can use Ford MyKey to set parameters for speed limit so there’s no risk of an impromptu drag race. This feature also allows you to choose a maximum volume on the stereo system. That way, you’re able to protect the outside world from your kid’s taste in music.
