The Mustang has two natural competitors and a variety of others that might also be considered.
The Chevrolet Camaro is the closest rival.
It excels for steering and handling, but suffers from a cramped cabin that is hard to see out of.
The Dodge Challenger is the truest muscle car of the group.
While it focuses its attention on big-time power and straight-line speed, it can also turn a corner, just not like the Mustang or Camaro.
Its bigger cabin is more practical and it has a real rear seat.
The Subaru BRZ and the Toyota 86 twins are cheaper and have less power, but they offer sharp handling and lots of road feel.
