SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Ford Mustang Coupe: Four stars overall; four stars frontal; four stars side
NHTSA

"good" for front and rear (seat) impacts, "acceptable" for side impacts "good" for front and rear (seat) impacts, "good" for side impacts
IIHS

For 2011, Ford added small insets on both side mirrors to open up the field of view and effectively eliminate blind spots.
Popular Mechanics



Muscle cars, pony cars, and affordable sports cars in general don't tend to have very great records for safety; but that's more due to the types of drivers they attract than to issues with the cars themselves.

The 2014 Ford Mustang is a pretty secure pick, if you plan to drive responsibly (and plan to get top-tier winter tires if you intend to drive it year-round).

In federal NCAP testing, the 2013 Mustang has earned four-star ratings overall, as well as for frontal and side impact. Mustang Convertible models have scored a top 'good' rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in frontal, side, and rear impact. Coupes earn 'acceptable' instead for side impact.

The safety-feature set is solid, too. Front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control are included. Option the Mustang up with Bluetooth, blind-spot monitors, a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors, and you get more safety features than a number of mid-size sedans costing just as much. 

The only catch? Outward visibility isn't great, particularly in Convertibles.

Conclusion

Good crash-test ratings continue to make the Mustang Convertible one of the safer soft-tops on the market.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
