waste of space, no good for seating, so should have been made for storage see full Ford Mustang review
2008 2dr Coupe 300-horsepower 4.6L V8
5-speed manual RWD
There is very little rear leg room, but this car isn't meant to be a people carrier. It is nice that there are rear seats, but anyone that is not a small child will have a hard time sitting in the back. see full Ford Mustang review
2007 2dr Coupe 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual RWD
While our present government may blow off the standards & principles of the Geneva Convention, I still find them worthy enough to abide. Mustang rear seats are in clear violation. see full Ford Mustang review

Ford has preserved the roots that kept the Mustangs alive for 45+ years. They knew that Mustang GT enthusiasts preferred the RWD solid axle V8 platform, which was how things were in the 60s. see full Ford Mustang review
