Hi,
Going on holiday and looking to hire a Mustang rather than a bulk standard hire car. Only issue is that there will be three adults and we will be doing some long trips 200-300 miles.
Could anyone with experience of a modern Mustang tell me if they will seat three adults in reasonable comfort or are the rear seats only suitable for small kids?
Thanks
PLC

No not enough room. Hired one on a business trip in SC with two colleagues. Ours was a convertible mustang, but we could only fit two 'medium' cases in the boot, and the third went on the rear seat.

Not the most comfortable, but worth it for a giggle. The others (non petrol heads) didnt see the funny side!

As long as it isn't a convertible you'll be fine (more boot space) I have regularly taken two adult passengers in mine over considerable distances and have had zero complaints on comfort.

Put the shorter person in the back though!

The headroom in the rear is limited, legroom is OK if the front passenger doesn't mind moving their seat forward a bit.

If you have short passengers you can probably do it, if they are both over 5ft 10 then not going to happen without lots of breaks.

If its a drop-top its only luggage space that will limit you, legroom is no problem.

As long as you rotate who's in the rear seat, you'll be fine.

However, being America, there are a few cars that will give you 3 on a front bench, so one guy isn't left out of the conversation.

or you could try for a challenger which is a far bit bigger?

No in my opinion, the odd times I have 3 in mine it isn't comfortable for the person in the back, wouldn't want to do 200-300 miles with 3.

Boot space is good tho, can get 3 sets of golf clubs in with room to spare.
