Really like the current Mustang...but what about the new one?

The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta

I really liked the body style of the current Mustang. When I heard that Ford was introducing a new generation of Mustang, I began to consider buyinga current version but wanted to wait until seeing the new version. After seeing thenew versionat an auto show, I'm not too sure I like the interior or exterior styling. I know it will handle better (IRS) and the interior will have much better materials, but the looks just don't seem to do it for me. However, I'm still on the fence as to which Mustang to get, or if I should get one at all. I prefer German cars....but I've also always wanted a Mustang. Any thoughts?

Preferred Bodystyle(s): Coupe / Sedan

Car Needs: Daily commuter / Fun toy

Need minimum of 2 seats

Will consider both new and used cars
Maximum mileage: 25000
Maximum age: 2 years

Maximum price: US $ 30000

I'd wait until the new one arrives, then drive them both, and see if you feel the higher price of the 2015 is worth it. At that point the 2014s should be deeply discounted to clear them out.

Not going to argue against either car per se. If you like the idea of a Mustang, these are easily the best-driving ones ever.

I'd say the same thing as Michael. You'll probably find that the new one is a lot nicer in refinement and handling. I personally like the new Mustang's looks, but even if you get the current one I think you'll enjoy it, and it should cost less.

Well, after much debate, I bought a 2014 Mustang GT. There were many factors going into the decision, but the main ones were: I really like the current body style, I can get a Mustang with all the options I want at a good price, new Mustangs with the options I want will cost more than I want to spend, and I'm somewhat leary of buying the first year of a new model (although that worked out ok with the Jeep Liberty I bought). I know the new Mustang will handle better, but I'm very familiar and comfortable with a solid rear axle. All my cars up until grad school had solid axles...they can be quite fun. The new Mustang will havea nicer interior, but I'm fine with the current interior. The interior upgrade was not enough to sway my decision. Overall, I'm happy with my decision. We'll see what happens when I start seeing new Mustangs out on the road!
